OnePlus 8T Spotted On GeekBench With A New Chip And 8GB RAM

The OnePlus Nord recently made its appearance, and stories of new OnePlus phones have already started swirling around. The Chinese company usually follows a tradition of launching its ‘T’ devices around October or November. The next set of phones from the company is presumed to be ‘T,’ which is why this could be the upcoming OnePlus 8T or the 8T Pro.

Geekbench is a service that tests the performance of smartphones and other devices. A listing on Geekbench has been identified for a OnePlus phone with the model number KB2001. It is running on Android 11, which doesn’t come as a surprise. OnePlus is hopeful to launch the phones with the latest Android versions, and by then Google is expected to release the final version of Android 11.

The alleged OnePlus 8T is recorded with 8GB RAM and will be powered by an unknown chipset called Qualcomm Kona. The codename is for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is also powering the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. However, the company is expected to opt for the recently launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. The same chipset is currently powering gaming phones like Nubia Red Magic 5S, Asus ROG Phone 3, and Lenovo Legion.

The GeekBench 5 scores of the alleged OnePlus 8T phone are pretty much similar to Snapdragon 865-powered phones. The OnePlus 7T is still a great phone considering its price and the upcoming ‘T’ device is also expected to present the best. There are reports suggesting that the company will debut its 65W Ultra-fast charging technology with OnePus 8T Pro. The upcoming OnePlus phones are expected to feature a 64-megapixel primary rear camera. The code of the latest OnePlus Camera app also hints that the brand will be shifting to the 64-megapixel sensor.
