OnePlus 8T Series :OnePlus working on next Beast with 120W charger. OnePlus will likely announce both the OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro. The company has a habit of releasing two T-series devices, but we’ll see what will happen. The OnePlus 8T series is expected to arrive in Q4 this year.
The company’s T-series of phones is usually just an upgraded regular flagship series that launches mid-year. That may be the case this year as well, though OnePlus may yet surprise us.

Expected features and specifications
Chip manufacturer Qualcomm recently confirmed its next chipset will be the Snapdragon 865 Plus. There was no mention of OnePlus during the announcement, but odds are that the OnePlus 8T series will be among the first Android phones to use this chipset.
According to a leaked benchmark test, the 8T will have 8GB of RAM and Android 11 which is as we would expect. Its results are reportedly not that dissimilar to the OnePlus 8, so we might not be looking at drastically improved performance.
The real big advantage over previous OnePlus phones would be 65W charging or 120W charging(Already OnePlus working on 120Watt charging technology but they can reserve this for oneplus 9 series) . Previous generations of OnePlus phones have maxed out at 30W charging, so more than doubling this would have a real impact on how long it takes to juice up the device.
We should see the same 120Hz refresh rate as the OnePlus 8, putting the 8T series on a par with the Samsung Galaxy S20 as one of the best Android phones when it comes to screen refresh rate.
The 8 Pro has a telephoto lens among its camera array, which the standard OnePlus 8 is lacking. Therefore it would make sense to add the telephoto lens to both the 8T and 8T Pro. In the case of the former, this is to differentiate it from its predecessor. And in the latter, to keep up with its predecessor’s photography skills.
We could also see a bump to 64MP on the main camera. That’s according to XDA Developers, who spotted a mention of the megapixel increase within the code for an update to the OnePlus camera app.
