We’re a month away from entering the last quarter of 2020, which means we should be preparing for new OnePlus smartphone announcements. The OnePlus 8 series unveiled earlier this year, and OnePlus is currently enjoying success with its new mid-range smartphone, the OnePlus Nord. The time is approaching for the announcement of the late-year “T” model, though, which we’re expecting in the form of the OnePlus 8T series. Now, Android Central has published some of the OnePlus 8T specifications.

The OnePlus 8T, which is reportedly codenamed kebab, will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, which has slightly improved CPU and GPU performance compared to the regular Snapdragon 865 in the OnePlus 8 series. One of the other improvements that we’ll see in the OnePlus 8T is a 120Hz AMOLED display like the OnePlus 8 Pro. The 8T is rumored to have a smaller 6.55-inch display versus the larger 6.78-inch display in the 8 Pro, though. It’s also expected to have a flat display with a hole-punch cutout, unlike the curved displays on the 8 series. The source also reveals that the OnePlus 8T will feature a quad rear camera setup comprised of a 48MP primary camera, a 16MP wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth-sensing camera. The publication claims that 8T’s 48MP image sensor is newer (and better) than the one found in the 8, but they didn’t confirm which sensor will be used. The OnePlus 8 featured Sony’s IMX586 while the OnePlus 8 Pro featured Sony’s IMX689, so it’s possible that the OnePlus 8T will have the IMX689. Moreover, the phone will launch with Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 on board.
