Following the success of OnePlus’ 8 series released earlier this year, the global mobile technology company has launched its newest high-end flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 8T. The new device introduces a host of next-generation technologies which includes a newly calibrated 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display and the brand’s upgraded fast-charging solution — Warp Charge 65.

The OnePlus 8T is available in two new colours — the Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver. The Aquamarine Green uses diffuse reflection, a form of light refraction to scatter light in an expansive array of angles and directions while providing a clean surface that leaves fewer fingerprints on the glossy glass back. 

If you’re looking for a more classic look for your phone, the new Lunar Silver variant combines the latest iteration of OnePlus’ premium matte-frosted glass with a calming grey tone to create the perfect balance between aesthetic elegance and unmatched comfort.

The OnePlus 8T display also has one of the highest colour accuracies in the industry with an FHD+ 2.5D flexible display for clear visuals under bright sunlight and make transitions between various brightness settings feel natural and comfortable.
