Unafraid to punch above its weight, OnePlus launched the new OnePlus 8T phone a day after Apple unveiled the iPhone 12, announcing its latest flagship during an online event on 14 October.

While the 8T doesn't have a larger 8T Pro sibling, it does boast a flat 6.55in, 120Hz display, and ditches the curved glass of the standard 8. There's also a sizeable 4,500mAh battery and 65W Warp Charge, up from the OnePlus 8's 30W.

You can expect Oxygen OS 11 on Android 11, all powered by a top-tier Snapdragon 865 chip. As for cameras, the 8T returns with the familiar 48Mp main camera on the back, along with a 16Mp ultra-wide, 5Mp macro and 2Mp mono. See our full review of the OnePlus 8T

How much does the OnePlus 8T cost?

While there isn't a Pro model of the 8T, the phone is available from OnePlus itself in two configurations and price-points:

  • OnePlus 8T 8GB/128GB - £549 - unavailable in the US
  • OnePlus 8T 12GB/256GB - £649/US$749

That's a very impressive starting price - and £50/$50 less than the equivalent OnePlus 8 models. In our review of the OnePlus 8T we called it an "incredibly competitive budget flagship".

Best OnePlus 8T Christmas deals on contract

In the UK, OnePlus phones are usually stocked exclusively by Three, but it doesn't look like it's decided to pick up the 8T. 

We would recommend picking up an excellent SIM-only deal, like 100GB of 5G data from Vodafone for £11.50 per month (with £54 cashback). See how you can save with a cashback mobile phone deal.

In the US, you can buy the OnePlus 8T+ 5G from T-Mobile. You can mostly ignore the '+' in the name, as this is still the standard 8T, but with full support for T-Mobile's 5G network and the addition of an official IP68 rating.
