The successor comes with a bag full of upgrades including the 65W fast charging support and faster 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display.

What’s different about the OnePlus 8T over the OnePlus 8?
First and foremost, it gets the Android 11 out of the box with OxygenOS 11. In addition, the display gets a bump up in refresh rate from 90 Hz to 120Hz.
Then, comes the fact that it now has a quad-cam setup with upgraded configurations. It has a 48MP primary camera with a Sony IMX586 sensor and optical image stabilization. Additionally, it comes with a 16MP ultra-wide camera with a Sony IMX481 sensor, a 2MP monochrome camera, and a 5MP macro camera.
However, the most enticing part is ‘Warp Charge 65’. It packs a 65W turbocharger with the OnePlus 8T that claims to charge the phone fully from 0 to 100 percent in 39 minutes flat.
