The OnePlus 8T also has 12 temperature sensors and an extra encryption chip in the adapter and cable to keep charging temperatures at a comfortable level while operating peak output. 

The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 865 5G chipset and is available with up to 256B of storage. 

There is also a quad-camera system which includes a 48MP main camera, 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and dedicated macro and monochrome lenses. 

The device features Oxygen OS 11 which reimagines the OnePlus software experience with an improved layout, bold design, and other useful features.

The OnePlus 8T with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is available in Lunar Silver for £549. The 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant of the device is available in aquamarine green for £649.

The phone is available to pre-order today and will be available through John Lewis, Amazon, and OnePlus directly from October 20.
