While the OnePlus 8T Geekbench listing had surfaced initially in July, which spurred the speculation surrounding the upcoming smartphone. However, the listing has now received fresh updates. These updates have confirmed some of the rumours while denied the rest.
For starters, this OnePlus 8T Geekbench listing has confirmed that the device will feature Android 11. This was also confirmed by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau through a forum post. It will make the OnePlus 8T the first phone to feature Android 11 apart from Google’s own Pixel series.
The device, having model number KB2000, featured a 12 GB RAM. An earlier GeekBench release for model number KB2001 confirmed the development of an 8GB variant as well. Referred to as OnePlus Kebab, the device will have a single eight-core processor with a base frequency of 1.8 GHz. The detailed Geekbench listing for the smartphone can be accessed here.
Speculation remains with OnePlus 8T Geekbench Listing
The most surprising news surrounding the OnePlus 8T was about its SoC. While the earliest reports suggested that this device will feature a Snapdragon 865+, leaks last month suggested a Snapdragon 865 for the smartphone. The latest OnePlus 8T Geekbench listing specified the SoC to be “kona”, which is said to be a codename for Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.
With the launch of OnePlus 8T scheduled for October 14th, there is still time for OnePlus to announce whether the device will run on Snapdragon 865+ or the Snapdragon 865 that is running the existing OnePlus 8 devices.
As speculated earlier by sources on Twitter, there is not going to be an OnePlus 8T Pro release. It was confirmed by the OnePlus CEO through his post on Weibo. However, he added that OnePlus still has other surprises coming up for customers this year.
