OnePlus 8T will receive an outdated camera sensor


OnePlus 8T's camera

It’s no secret that OnePlus has decided to retain the brand’s most advanced smartphone OnePlus 8 Pro, which is why only one flagship device will be presented on October 14 – the OnePlus 8T. Now it turned out that the manufacturer intends not to create competition with the main flagship of the year, which is why the autumn smartphone will receive an outdated IMX586 camera sensor.

OnePlus 8T will receive an outdated camera sensor

OnePlus 8T

This sensor was introduced back in 2018 and is found both in budget devices (like the Honor Play 4T) and in previous OnePlus flagships: 7, 7 Pro, 7T, 7T Pro, 8 and even Nord. The top-end IMX689 sensor will remain only on the OnePlus 8 Pro, while there is no information on the OnePlus 8T Pro camera yet.

At the moment, it is not known how exactly the manufacturer will explain such a decision. In general, this situation is indirectly similar to the approach of Google, whose Pixel line is equipped with the same 12-megapixel IMX363 sensor from year to year, but this is due to its unique combination of quality and affordability.

Here is a reminder of the specifications of the current OnePlus 8 smartphone models.
