Cyberpunk 2077-Themed Transforms The Look Of The OnePlus 8T

OnePlus has revealed a Cyberpunk 2077-themed 8T that looks very wild and it looks completely different from the standard OnePlus 8T. However, the phone is only available for pre-order in China. With costs CNY 3,999 (~ $600).

The highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 action-adventure RPG from CD Projekt Red was delayed until December 10, but smartphone maker OnePlus didn’t do it with the special edition OnePlus 8T.

The OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition will be limited to OnePlus fans in China, debuting there on Nov. 11.

The Cyberpunk 207 OnePlus 8T is a marketing exercise through-and-through. So don’t expect this edition to have any other specs than the OnePlus 8T. Instead, it’s all about the cool new style.

Cyberpunk 2077-Themed Transforms The Look Of The OnePlus 8T

The phone has plenty of aesthetics to match the visual tones of the upcoming game, such as striking yellow accents and the Cyberpunk 2077 logo on the bottom of the phone. And they using the black and yellow color to highlight the buttons, sides, and corners on the phone. But the biggest highlight is its huge camera module, which takes up most of the width of the back of the phone.

Perhaps the most striking design change of this edition is the camera module. It has been blended into a large glass panel taking up the top of the device. It prevents the 8T from looking a lot like the Galaxy S20 Plus. The rest of the phone has a textured, carbon fiber-style design, and some Cyberpunk 2077 branding. It differs significantly from the standard OnePlus 8T. The software also has some Cyberpunk 2077 themed highlights, including custom tones and backgrounds. The phone also has two special camera filters, “Night City” and “North California,” along with a special box that comes with a case to protect the device, and some Cyberpunk 2077 pins too.

This limited edition’s specs are similar to the OnePlus 8T. It has a 120Hz display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,500mAh battery.

Pre-orders will go live on Nov. 4 with a final release coming on Nov. 11. Currently, there is no news about the global release.

OnePlus 9 Series Is Set To Launch In March 2021 According To Reports

Usually, the OnePlus flagship being released in annual around May. But if OnePlus 9 launch in Mar 2021, which is 2 months ahead of normal.

OnePlus has been famous since they announced the OnePlus 8T. As per reports, they recorded sales of close to $30 million in China in under 10 minutes. Additionally, it is said that their Nord lineup will be launching soon in North America. In the US, OnePlus will position their Nord series as the N10 series with their first few phones launching next month. Apart from that, we know that a Watch from OnePlus is also pending which might be announced at the same time. However, we have something new to report regarding OnePlus and their plans for the coming year.

OnePlus 9 could be announced in March 2021

OnePlus 9 could be announced in March 2021

It seems OnePlus has changed their launch strategy and is continuing to launch more new phones. Because Android Central’s sources have told them that OnePlus 9 will launch way ahead of its regular timeline. Usually, we see the flagship series from OnePlus being released in the first half of every year. And it usually annual happening around May. But if  the OnePlus 9 will launch in March 2021, it is two months ahead of normal.

It’s also worth noting that the OnePlus 8T Pro wasn’t launched with the OnePlus 8T. And, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be nearly a year old by the time the OnePlus 9 launches so it does make sense. However, it also raises the question of whether OnePlus will launch their “Pro” phone during the upcoming 6-month refresh cycle. If not, we could see OnePlus launch a Pro phone every year and two non-Pro phones as we saw with OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8T.

While that makes sense for the OnePlus 8 Pro, it doesn’t suit the OnePlus 8T as the OnePlus 9 will also have 65W fast charging. The big upgrade we will see next year will be with the 5nm-based Snapdragon 875 5G chip. Which could be better than the Snapdragon 865 of the OnePlus 8T. We also feel that OnePlus will target OnePlus 8 users with OnePlus 9 rather than OnePlus 8T users. Even for the OnePlus 9 Pro, we felt that the upgrades would be insignificant beyond the camera.

Because they already have wireless charging, fast charging will be upgraded to 65W. And there will certainly be Snapdragon 875. But whether it justifies the price increase, and whether it forces OnePlus 8 Pro or OnePlus 7 series users to upgrade is a question for another day.
