OnePlus 8T comes with a 6.55 inches AMOLED HDR10+ display. It supports a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels with a 20:9 aspect ratio.

OnePlus 8T comes with Android 11 as standard, augmented by the company’s own Oxygen OS 11 software. Besides, it is the first smartphone from OnePlus to feature an always-on display.
The rear side of the phone packs a quad camera and dual-LED flash in a single module. The primary camera of the 48MP IMX 586 sensor that is used for optical image stabilization.
