Today, we're talking about the OnePlus 8T. The OnePlus 8T is a great smartphone to gift this year, it's a somewhat inexpensive smartphone, compared to the competition. And it still offers up some really great specs and an impressive experience.
- Today, December 9, OnePlus is doing a Buy one, get one 50% off sale for the OnePlus 8T. So you can buy two of these phones (maybe one for your significant other and keep the other for yourself) for only $1,123.50. The OnePlus 8T is normally $749 each. This sale is good on December 9 only though.
On the spec sheet, the OnePlus 8T is pretty impressive. It sports a 6.55-inch FHD+ 120Hz display, powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage to boot. There's no micro SD card slot available, but 256GB should be enough storage for most people. There's also a 4500mAh capacity battery inside that should keep you going all day long.
Speaking of the battery, there is also 65W charging available, which is insanely fast. And should make it easy to top off your phone before you head out.
OnePlus has outfitted the 8T with a quad-camera setup on the rear. That includes a 48-megapixel f/1.7 main sensor with PDAF and OIS included. There is a 16-megapixel ultra-wide, a 5-megapixel macro and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Yes, unfortunately OnePlus has fallen into the trap of adding pretty useless sensors just to be able to say they have four cameras on their phone. But the overall camera experience is quite good, and well worth the money.
