  • OnePlus has officially revealed the design of its next flagship phone.
  • OnePlus 8T is set to be unveiled at a virtual event on October 14.

OnePlus is set to officially unveil its next flagship phone next week. Ahead of the launch, the company has revealed the first official renders of the OnePlus 8T in Aquamarine Green.

In a post on the OnePlus Community forums, the company's CEO Pete Lau said that the glossy back cover for the new Aquamarine Green variant of the OnePlus 8T utilizes diffuse reflection to retain the glossy texture of the glass that a lot of people like, while mitigating buildup of fingerprints. He added:

Throughout development, we tried and tested hundreds of films before landing on the ideal type, which contains 7 layers, to complement the high-gloss finish and bring out the unique shade between green and blue. We never could have achieved this if we had followed the conventional development process of producing color films, but I'm proud to say that our efforts paid off. For the OnePlus 8T, we were able to produce one of the most advanced films in the industry, achieving a high-quality finish that raises the OnePlus standards for beautiful design.

The OnePlus 8T is expected to feature a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED display panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. Like the OnePlus 8 series phones, it will have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor under the hood. The 48MP primary camera on the back of the 8T will be joined by a 16MP ultra-wide lens, a 5MP macro shooter, and a 2MP sensor for portrait shots. It is also expected to pack a 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. On the software front, the 8T will ship with Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 right out of the box.
