OnePlus is scheduled to launch its usual late-year flagship phone refresh, the 8T, on October 14, 2020. However, tipsters claim to have found out how many rear cameras the phone will have, as well as the function of each sensor. Furthermore, there are now rumors that it may be slightly shorter than the 8 Pro, yet still have the same depth.

The OnePlus 8T is slated to be a premium device with the Snapdragon 865 processor on its October 2020. Now, the well-known tipster OnLeaks claims to know how much space it will take up.

Following on from a post concerning renders for this phone to which the same leaker contributed, these new indications are that it will be 162.8 millimeters (mm) high, 75.5mm wide x 8.4mm in depth (or 9.3mm if taking its rear camera module into account).

This would mean that it would be a little shorter than its immediate predecessor the 8 Pro, if also a little shorter. The two phones would share the same thickness. Given that the 8T is to have a 4500mAh battery - a spec officially confirmed by the OEM itself - this point is plausible at least.

Meanwhile, the emerging leaker Yogesh now asserts that, despite earlier rumors of a 64MP main sensor for this device, the OnePlus 8T will have 48+16+5+2MP rear cameras. They will cover wide, ultrawide, depth and macro functions respectively. 

This may mean that the late-2020 product will lose the telephoto lens found in its previous generation, the 7T. However, according to Yogesh, the 8T may retain this phone's 16MP wide-angle selfie camera. This tipster has also claimed to have heard that it will be released for sale on October 16, 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
