Recently the OnePlus 8T was spotted listed on the company’s official website. This smartphone was amongst the five unannounced devices whose guides were accidentally put up on the company’s website. 8T is expected to launch by the end of September or in the first week of October. But in a new development, a rumour suggests the OnePlus 8T debut will be delayed by several weeks all thanks to coronavirus. The Pandemic has caused some production issues therefore the launch will happen sometime in mid-October.
According to a report by MySmartPrice citing info from tipster Ishan Agarwal hints at the delay in the launch of the OnePlus 8T. Due to production issues caused by pandemic coronavirus the company is now planning the release for October 14. However, this is not the confirmed date for the launch as there could be last-minute changes in the timeline amid coronavirus. Until now the company has not made its official announcement with regard to the OnePlus 8T but the launch will be held virtually similar to OnePlus 8 and Nord. OnePlus generally launched its T series smartphone in the month of September. Last year OnePlus 7T was also launched alongside its first Android TVs namely OnePlus TV Q1 series.
In the past, we came across several leaks and rumours regarding the launch, specs and render. One of the recent leaks is that guides of the five unannounced devices were accidentally listed on the company’s official website. First spotted by tipster Evan Blass, the OnePlus 8T, OnePlus 8T Pro, OnePlus Nord 100, OnePlus Nord 105g, and another device with model number SS9805 accidentally went live on its website. However, the company stays tight-lipped on the upcoming ‘T’ series smartphone but guides confirm the presence of the device.
While the leaked renders hints that 8T will carry an L-shaped quad rear camera setup. Upfront there might be a curved 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with an LED flash and a hole punch on to house a selfie camera on the top left corner of the screen.

The handset is rumoured to be powered by a Snapdragon 865+ processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage as well as 12GB RAM with 256GB storage options.
