OnePlus 8T has been launched by the Chinese smartphone maker globally in a virtual event that was livestreamed via its website, YouTube and other social media channels. OnePlus has launched another device in the crowded upper mid-range segment with flagship features to lure potential buyers, especially before the festive sale when flagship devices from earlier this year or the one before will be available with massive discounts. Here’s a comparison between the two devices which will help you choose whether it is worth the upgrade or not.
OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Display and design
OnePlus 8T has a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED display with 2400 x 1080 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. The display on the OnePlus 8T is flat compared to the curved edges on the OnePlus 8 which features a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Clearly, the refresh rate is higher than the predecessor on the newer version which will be a good sell for the gamers. However, if you are not into gaming, this feature is something you would not be able to use to the best of its abilities. There are not many changes in the design except the flat display and camera module’s placement.
OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Cameras
There is a massive change in the camera module of the newer version. The OnePlus 8T sports a quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary camera, a 16MP ultrawide camera with 123-degree field of view, a 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP monochrome camera. The camera module is placed on the side of the phone and is more rectangular in shape. The older version had a triple-camera setup which was placed in the middle, just above the OnePlus logo. The only change was that it did not have a macro camera.
OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Processor
Both smartphones are equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor coupled with Adreno 650 GPU. This particular SoC is not the latest but still produces stunning results whether it is for gaming or handling several apps at once.
OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Battery and charging
The OnePlus 8T has a slightly bigger battery than its predecessor. The newly-unveiled phone has a 4,500 mAh battery compared to the 4,300 mAh battery on the OnePlus 8. However, the massive difference is in the charging speeds of the two. OnePlus 8T supports 65W Warp charging and it can juice up the phone fully in just 39 minutes. OnePlus 8 supported 30W Warp charging technology. The OnePlus 8T can also solve the problem of carrying an extra charger for your laptop.
OnePlus 8T vs OnePlus 8: Price and variants
OnePlus 8T has two variants — 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB priced at Rs 42,999 and Rs 45,999 respectively. OnePlus 8 had three variants — 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB priced at Rs 41,999, Rs 44,999 and Rs 49,999 respectively. Also, both phones have 5G connectivity.
