Back in April, Chinese manufacturer, OnePlus, released its latest flagship series, OnePlus 8 series. At the time, this series has the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. There have been reports that OnePlus will add a new model to this series. However, this new model will also be in the T series. A couple of high-definition renders of the OnePlus 8T recently hit the web via Pricebaba and Onleaks. The renders show a 360-degree view of this smartphone. These images are not based on 3D CAD as usual, they are based on internal schematics. The implication of this is that there will be no information on the dimensions of the device.
Looking at the renders, we can’t help but notice the redesigned rectangular camera module. The quad-cameras as well as the LED flash forms a “C” shape. If you take away the LED flash, you will have an “L” shape. The module hosting all the sensors is on the top left corner of the phone. The cameras include a 48MP main shooter +16MP ultra-wide lens + 5MP macro + 2MP portrait sensors. On the front, the report claims that we will have a 32MP shooter which is an upgrade of the 16MP sensor on both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
