OnePlus 8T
Liu Hongzuo
If you’ve seen the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, then you would have seen the OnePlus 8T in spirit. Like its brothers, the OnePlus 8T offers a premium design that’s close enough to compete with top-shelf flagship mobiles. Other than the flat front, its design language is identical to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, and it feels undeniably premium when you observe the phone from hole to hole.

Specifications-wise, the 5G-ready OnePlus 8T offers a flat 6.55inch, 1080p OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, a similar quad-rear camera configuration, and a 4,500mAh battery. That’s nearly identical to the OnePlus 8 Pro, but the differences lie within the details.

OnePlus 8T has no rated water resistance, while using OnePlus 8’s main camera sensor instead (Sony IMX586), and offers 65W (10V/6.5A) fast charging with no wireless charging capabilities. Features - like NFC, in-display fingerprint sensor, Face Unlock, USB Type-C connector with USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds, dual stereo speakers, dual nano-SIM card tray, no physical expandable storage options, and even the chipset (Qualcomm Snapdragon 865) - stays on the 8T.

WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT CLOUD SECURITY SOLUTIONS?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
