New OxygenOS Update Delivers A Lot Of Optimizations To OnePlus 8T

Oneplus 8T AM AH 16

Since the launch of the OnePlus 8T almost a month ago, OnePlus has kept pushing new updates for the device. And now, a new OxygenOS update is live for the OnePlus 8T.

The update is based on Android 11, which is the operating system that comes pre-installed out of the box. OnePlus ditched a Pro variant for its T-lineup of devices.

Instead, it went with a single OnePlus 8T. The reason was simple and understandable. Which is that there is not much room and new features that the company could fit in a Pro model.


Basically, the company does not have much left to offer for the Pro variant. This is the reason OnePlus took a step back and released only the OnePlus 8T.

Quite frankly, the device is meaty enough and is a worthy flagship from the company for the price. It comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect out of an OnePlus device.

However, the performance of the camera is still a huge talking point. And if they had to take my opinion, there is a lot of scope for improvement in the camera department.
