What to expect from the OnePlus 8T event
Here’s what OnePlus is most likely to announce on 14 October 2020.
OnePlus usually uses the T-series to upgrade its annual, numbered flagships with modest improvements. Last year, for instance, the OnePlus 7T introduced a higher 90Hz refresh rate, versus the OnePlus 7, plus a third camera on the back of the device. OnePlus has already teased the OnePlus 8T, saying it will include “a range of new and improved technologies that will elevate the OnePlus experience to new heights”. Leaks suggest it will look similar to the OnePlus 8 from the front.
It’s supposed to have a different rear camera layout, with the addition of a 2-megapixel portrait sensor. It will also have a 120Hz refresh rate and a 4,500mAh battery.

Is that it?
Last year, the OnePlus 7T Pro debuted alongside the OnePlus 7T, but it’s unclear if we will see a Pro version of the OnePlus 8T this time around. But we might OnePlus announce a few accessories to go with its new half-step smartphone. For instance, the OnePlus Buds are said to be coming in a cheap flavour soon.
