The OnePlus 8T is set to launch today at a virtual event. The new OnePlus flagship will succeed the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro phones that were unveiled back in April. Ahead of its launch, the Chinese smartphone maker has revealed a host of specifications on the OnePlus 8T that includes a 4,5000mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging and 5G connectivity. Although its pricing and sale availability will be announced at the launch event today, reports have suggested that the phone would come in two storage variants and at least one colour option. Last month, the company CEO Pete Lau also confirmed that the OnePlus 8T smartphone will not come with a ‘Pro’ variant.
