Fluid display and Warp Charge
It is rumoured that the OnePlus 8T may come with a 65W Warp Charge technology, a first for the company. OnePlus had always focused on bundling fast charging tech, known as Dash Charge, with its devices right from the initial days. Going by the teaser, the technology uses the dual-cell battery setup similar to what we have seen in VOOC charging tech from Oppo.
In case you’re not aware, OnePlus has licensed Oppo’s VOOC charging technology and has rebranded it as Warp Charge. This is the same charging mechanism used in a few recent Oppo and Realme phones and thanks to it, you can expect a full charge on the OnePlus 8T in less than 40 minutes.
Apart from this, what we already know about the OnePlus 8T, is that the phone will come with a 6.5-inch 120Hz fluid display offering “a buttery smooth display experience.” Since the last few OnePlus devices come with a 90Hz refresh rate, a bump up in this section may result in a slightly bigger battery pack as well.
Other rumours suggest that the company may stick with the Snapdragon 865 SoC on the OnePlus 8T, unlike most new flagship devices. It could come with 8GB of RAM and may run on Android 11 out of the box. While on the optics side, the phone may house a quad rear camera setup and a front camera housed under a hole-punch cutout.
