OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus Nord "Gray Ash" edition alongside the OnePlus 8T. Read our first impressions to find out. This deal is open to new and existing customers and it also works with the OnePlus 8 5G that launched earlier this year.

Apart from the smartphone, the company has also launched the OnePlus Buds Z weighing just 43.5 grams which start at $49.

Unafraid to punch above its weight, OnePlus just launched the new OnePlus 8T phone a day after Apple launched the iPhone 12. The OnePlus 8T is priced at $749 for the 12GB+256GB variant, a $50 markup from the asking price of its predecessor - the OnePlus 8. The 8GB variant comes in Lunar Silver and the 12GB in Aquamarine Green. More importantly, OnePlus is also bringing Nightscape mode to video capture as well. However, that is not a bad thing.

It's likely that the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro will get the latest update first, and after that, the update will show up on OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro smartphones. "Featuring a class-leading 120Hz AMOLED display, our upgraded 65-watt fast charging technology, and fresh, bold software in OxygenOS 11, the OnePlus 8T offers an impressive overall package of powerful hardware and smooth software".

T-versions of OnePlus devices mark the middle of the development cycle for the company.

"OnePlus is consistently exploring opportunities to fuel its growth and meet the needs of more users, by starting to strategically diversify into new product categories and new price points but, at the same time, not compromising on our OnePlus promise", Nakra said. The different three sensors are 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel depth. It is marketed as an improved version of the OnePlus 8 model. For a half-yearly refresh and at a nominal price increase, this is a ideal deal. OnePlus has tough competition ahead since the Samsung smartphone provides tremendous value, too. Preorders have begun and phones will be available for sale on October 19.

In OnePlus 8T, the company has given a large battery of 4,500mAh. It will run the newest OxygenOS model based mostly on Android 10 out of the field. Come back for a detailed review as I test the phone extensively over the next few days.
