OnePlus has finally revealed the date and time for the release of its OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro! The keynote is scheduled for 4MP CEST on October 14, 2020. It has already confirmed it will sport a 6.55″ 120Hz FullHD+ flat display. The Chinese phone maker also teased 65W fast charging, which has now been confirmed in a post on OnePlus Forums.
Last year, OnePlus released a slightly upgraded battery capacity with the OnePlus 7T, which added additional 100mAh of capacity to the OnePlus 7’s 3,700mAh, thus standing at 3,800mAh. This year’s OnePlus 8T comes with a solid 4,500mAh battery. OnePlus’ 65W fast charging is called Warp Charge 65, which OnePlus says will provide 8T “a day’s power in 15 minutes”. To be more precise, it will charge the 8T’s 4,500 mAh battery from flat to “almost 58%” in 15 minutes, and 100% in 39 minutes.
For safety and security, OnePlus has added an encryption chip to the adapter and the cable and 12 temperature sensors in the 8T for intelligent and efficient charging. Moreover, the company also added a new heat dissipation system to the OnePlus 8T to prevent it from overheating when charging.
