- OnePlus 8T is available at Rs 28,999 on the OnePlus official website.
- The phone packs an outdated Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
- OnePlus 8T won’t get any software updates after the Android 13 update.
OnePlus 8T was launched in India in October 2020, priced at Rs 42,999 for the base unit. The company gave the OnePlus 8T a price cut of Rs 4,000 last year, making it cheaper than the OnePlus 9R. Now, the company is selling the handset under the Rs 30,000 price range. Before buying this phone, consider that the OnePlus 8T is a two-year-old phone that packs outdated configurations.
The phone is available for Rs 28,999 on the OnePlus official website. There’re better options available in the market at the same price range from OnePlus or its competitors. Here’s why you should not buy the OnePlus 8T(review) for under Rs 30,000.
OnePlus 8T price drop
There is no doubt that when the OnePlus 8T was launched, it was one of the best-selling smartphones in the market, even better than the OnePlus 9R. The phone’s fast refresh rate display, 65W fast charging, and high-resolution camera were a good package back in 2020. However, nowadays, most mid-ranger packs all those trendy configurations at a lower price.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor of the OnePlus 8T is two years old and would be out-performed by any latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series processor. The OnePlus Nord 2, which debuted last year, is priced under Rs 30,000 and could easily beat the OnePlus 8T. The recently launched iQOO Neo 6(review) and Motorola Edge 30(review) are also a better pick over the OnePlus 8T, available in the same price range.
OnePlus 8T specifications
- 6.55-inch FHD+ AMOLED 120Hz display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC
- 4,500mAh battery, 65W charging
- up to 12GB RAM, 256GB storage
- 48MP + 16MP + 5MP + 2MP quad rear camera
- 16MP selfie camera
The OnePlus 8T has already received the Android 12 update after running on Android 11 out of the box. The phone will receive an Android 13 update shortly, and that’s all it’ll get. It’s highly unlikely that the OnePlus 8T will see the Android 14, as OnePlus only releases three major software updates for each smartphone.
