Every year, OnePlus releases a kind of path up version of it’s previous device which usually have all the missing specifications and features. I’m talking about the OnePlus devices with the “T” branding and despite the release of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro earlier on this year, the Chinese tech giant is on the verge of releasing the OnePlus 8T.
But what’s even more interesting about this news is the fact that the company will be slashing the price tag off the OnePlus 8 series as the “8T” model sets for a release.
As of now, there is the OnePlus 8 pro with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage being sold at about US$899 which was initially US$999 when it debuted. But right now, that price point might have just gotten even lowered with another US$100 price slash reducing the entire fee to just US$799.
This had always been the case with OnePlus devices even the previous model, the OnePlus 7 series and the OnePlus 7 T series. But the sad thing about this news is that Indian buyers will not be getting this price slash whatsoever.
One of the main reasons OnePlus probably need the OnePlus 8T series this time around is due to the release of the new Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) which is storming everywhere right now which is priced at about US$699 a little lower than the anticipated price tag of the OnePlus 8 Pro when the price finally get slashed.
The Galaxy S20 FE definitely have some perks to it’s name as well which includes it’s high refresh rates even though it doesn’t have as much storage space and RAM as the OnePlus 8 Pro for example. It also sports a much larger battery and external storage support to compensate for the smaller storage space and even better cameras.
But never forget that the OnePlus 8 series too are high-end flagship devices sporting high-end processing units like the Snapdragon 865 chipset and a superb AMOLED display with high refresh rates. The OnePlus 8 Pro sports 5G network support, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and quad rear camera setup while also having a big 4510mAh battery which supports 3OW wireless charging with 30T Warp charge technology to speed up your charging processes.
