  • alt text

    No big features. No compromises even. It looks OnePlus has got a perfect balance. The Chinese smartphone maker has upgraded its latest flagship handset OnePlus 8T with the new Warp Charge 65W.

    This major change will itself sell OnePlus 8T as it can give a 100% charge in just 37 minutes. A quick 15-min top-up is sufficient enough to pull it through the day. Claimed to be the world’s fastest charging technology, OnePlus 8T will surely get rewarded.

    Moreover, it gets a minor bump (from 4300mAh to 4500mAh) in the battery. The sad part is it still doesn’t offer wireless charging support. Leaving it aside, it offers a good USB-C port and charger inside the retail box.

    OnePlus 8T Specifications:

    Regarding specifications, the new OnePlus 8T sports a 6.55-inch AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution. It has 120Hz refresh rate and does support a maximum 1100 nits brightness level.

    Powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset and 8GB/12GB of LPDDR4X RAM, it has upgraded to UFS 3.1 storage with onboard storage options of 128GB/256GB capacities.
