Don’t expect camera performance from OnePlus 8T

OnePlus 8T will be an intermediate model without major technical updates

An attentive user and fan of the company has a question: “What is so interesting to offer in OnePlus 8T? ” There is a chance that after the announcement of the novelty, many will have a question: “What was that?” The new smartphone may not offer something really interesting and catchy. Just a typical flagship of our days with good hardware. Can the camera be improved?

Alas, the camera upgrade is not included in the company’s plans. Among the sensors on the back, the 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor will again solo. This CMOS sensor was introduced in July 2018 and has gone from flagship to affordable models in the past two years. So, it can be found in a huge number of devices, including Oppo Reno4, realme X50 Pro, OnePlus 8, OnePlus Nord, Meizu 16S Pro, Asus Zenfone 6, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, Asus ROG Phone 2, Honor Play 4T, Huawei Nova 5z , realme 5 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro.

It looks like the company has decided to keep the OnePlus 8 Pro as the main flagship of 2020. This is why the Sony IMX689 sensor did not migrate from this model to the OnePlus 8T. The company’s attempt to justify its decision by the fact that the Sony IMX586 received more positive reviews from users than the Sony IMX689 looks rather clumsy. There is a possibility that, nevertheless, economy and the desire to minimize the price tag on the OnePlus 8T were at the forefront.
