(Pocket-lint) - OnePlus has confirmed that its next phone, the OnePlus 8T, is coming soon. The phone will get its debut on 14 October, lining up with a rumour published recently that this would be the chosen date with the latest T-version phone.
The phone's launch event will kick off at 10:00 Eastern, which means 15:00 in the UK and 16:00 in central Europe. The company will reveal live stream details a bit later on, but for the meantime you can head to OnePlus.com/launch to get notified.
As well as using the one and only Robert Downey Jr in one promotional video on YouTube, the company has published a fuller teaser trailer which seems to show a slightly different design on the edges of the phone.
It hints that the curved glass on the front might a thing of the past. That's something we've seen before in leaks.
As for the phone itself, rumours have suggested we're going to see a significant spec bump in a couple of areas from OnePlus 8 to 8T.
First is the screen refresh rate which is claimed to be jumping from 90Hz to 120Hz. Secondly, the company is said to be upping the charging speed and going with the super-fast 65W wired flash charging, more than doubling the power from the 30W Warp Charge on the OnePlus 8.
That jump up to the much faster charging will likely mean a battery redesign using similar technology to Oppo where the battery is made up of two cells in order to maximize speed.
We're also expecting to see the number of cameras on the back jump up from three to four, with the primary and ultra-wide being joined by a macro camera and a depth sensor.
As more information comes in we'll keep you up to date on the developments.
