    Hello Community,

    The day you all have been waiting for has come (and gone!) After plenty of leaks and several teasers over the past few weeks, the OnePlus 8T finally broke cover yesterday!
    If you missed the live stream, you can still watch it here or read Pete's announcement thread to learn everything about what went down at the event.

    Here's a quick recap of the major announcements:
    • The OnePlus 8T
    • The Nord in a new finish - Grey Ash
    • The Buds Z
    • A new Bass edition of the Bullets Wireless Z (India exclusive)
    While the 8T wasn't the only thing that was announced yesterday, it was unquestionably the star of the show. I don't know about you, but for me, things are getting interesting. The way in which the market is getting populated with so many compelling options, at various price points, consumers have the absolute freedom to pick what they truly like. Fancy a premium look with a symmetrical curved design? Well, the OnePlus 8 in its striking interstellar glow finish might be the one for you. But if you're someone who prefers functionality over looks, then the 8T with its 120 Hz flat display is no slouch either!
    So regardless of what you like (flat or curved), you will always have an option to choose from. Never Settle, right?

    Still, that's only how I see it; I am not sure how you feel about the launch event and the 8T in particular. So to fix that, here's a challenge for you:

    Share your first impressions or initial thoughts about the OnePlus 8T in 80 words or less!

    You're free to talk about any aspect of the device. (Even the price!)
    As there have been some drastic changes to the design of the 8T when compared to the previously announced 8/8Pro, you can share your views regarding that, or you can choose to talk about the camera and performance instead.
    As I said, you're free to talk about anything! But remember you only got 80 words to make your point, so choose them wisely.

    The user who posts the most creative and engaging reply will be rewarded with the OnePlus Buds Z, provided by OnePlus. The Community Team will also reward other entries they enjoy with 5XP.

    Rules:
    • You're free to post multiple times, but there can be no more than 80 words per post.
    • Entries accepted until October 23, 7PM HKT.
    • Winners will be picked based on the quality of content and creativity, so spamming the thread will not increase your chances in any way.
    • The community team will determine the winners.
    • Standard Terms and Conditions apply.
    So what are you waiting for? Share your 8T thoughts in 80 words!

    8T | First Impressions

    "FLAT!"
    No, not the launch event. I'm talking about the 8T's Fluid AMOLED screen! In the past I've made no attempt to hide my disappointment that OnePlus had started producing all their flagships with curved displays, but here we are - FINALLY - with a beautifully flat display and all the fist pumping stats we need:
    • 120 Hz
    • A+ rating (DisplayMate)
    • HDR 10+
    • 1,100 nits
    • super-low response latency
    • 20:9 aspect ratio

    The Lab winners write thousands of words for a 8T. You want to get one for 80 or less. See something wrong? ;)

    😂 Glad you got my sarcasm.
    Sarcasm is meant to be taken lightly, my man.

    The launch was kinda disappointing. It's like they get us all warmed up with the hype and then leave us stone cold. Also, missed @Carl this time around.

    Outwardly entangled between Samsung and its own uniqueness, the Oneplus 8T simply astounds users at first sight. Light at its core, the glass shell shoulders ultra-fast performance at a single touch through interlacing the brilliance of software fluidity and optimised architecture. View it. Hold it. Use it. The sheer beauty of technological innovation has never felt so familiar, yet distinct. And that is the 8T for you.

    The brand took the NEVER SETTLE tag really seriously.
    I think in India at Rs. 42,999 8T is launched at very AGGRESSIVE price.
    Most important for me is 65W charger. Full charge in just 39 minutes.
    In today's WFH time, smartphones are really important for work and when charger is fast, we can work more and longer.
    and the charger is free [e]1f601[/e].

    8T packed with Ultra smooth 120Hz flat display was alluring to see,
    But, the 65W Warp Charger was the show stopper to me.

    Rest features looked mediocre when compared to the already existing OP8 series.
    IMX689 instead of 586, Monochrome and Macro, would have made it a flagship with ease.

    And, The most impressive of all was the pricing to it.
    Makes me wanna forget my girl, and put a ring on it.​

    Were you preparing an essay since the launch?

    Jokes apart, well written! 😁

    OnePlus 8T is like a traffic light in GTA games, as no one really knows why it's there, but it's there.

    8T in 80?

    Well can't we just keep it short like with we want with the year 2020 and just call the brand new OnePlus 8T as "SEX-T" despite it being flat 😉.
