OnePlus 8T Pro design

It seems that OnePlus might have accidentally revealed the design of its upcoming OnePlus 8T in the code of an Android 11 beta update rolled out for OnePlus 8 Pro. As users are excited for the company to unveil the incremental update to its 8 series, the design reveal could boost up the excitement.

As spotted by Oxygen Updater developers, the latest Android 11 DP contains a reference to OnePlus 8T, codenamed Kebab. A file named “oneplus_8t.webp” has been spotted in the wild, and it includes an image of OnePlus 8T.

There isn’t any visible design change in OnePlus 8T according to the image. It still has a punch hole camera and a blue-themed color scheme. Another thing that’s clearly visible in the purported image of OnePlus 8T is the flat screen, which marks a shift from a slightly curved display of OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.

There isn’t any radical change, but considering the history of OnePlus smartphones, the T series usually comes with performance upgrades and doesn’t focus much on design changes.

The backside of the phone is not visible in the image; hence there is not much to discuss on the rear design yet. There are chances that this image could only be a placeholder and not OnePlus 8T as we think it to be. Therefore, we recommend our users to take this leak with a pinch of salt.

Previously, it was suggested by some leaks that OnePlus 8T will arrive with a 64MP primary camera in comparison to the 48MP sensor in OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Additionally, OnePlus is also working to bring 8K video recording support to its upcoming devices.

OnePlus is expected to release OnePlus 8T sometime in November, as we have seen with previous T series releases by the company.
