The OnePlus 8T is due to be announced soon, but there are already plenty of rumors detailing exactly what kind of specs we can expect from this upcoming smartphone. Apparently, the OnePlus 8T will have a 6.55" 120Hz FullHD+ flat display, which should prove to be good for gaming and editing photos or videos. 

However, one of the most exciting leaked specs is the inclusion of 'Warp Charge 65', which is OnePlus' 65W fast charging. This promises to provide the OnePlus 8T with "a day's power in 15 minutes", which will certainly prove popular with users who are always on the go.

As reported (opens in new tab) by GSMArena, this exciting spec soundbite actually breaks down into the OnePlus 8T being able to be charged from flat to almost 58% in 15 minutes. To charge the phone to 100% you'll need just 39 minutes, which is in itself pretty impressive! In order to achieve these speeds, the OnePlus 8T will come with two separate 2,250 mAh batteries, which are able to be charged faster than a single 4,500 battery.

However, anyone who's wondering whether the OnePlus 8T will support wireless charging will unfortunately be left disappointed. Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, said in an interview (opens in new tab) with PCMag that this upcoming phone won't support wireless charging because "implementing the coil component needed for wireless charging would add to the phone's thickness… [and] would impact the overall design and user experience."

Other interesting leaked specs (opens in new tab) include the rumor that the OnePlus 8T will include two RAM options and a Snapdragon 865 chipset. The phone will also be similar in size and weight to the OnePlus 8. There's also a rumor that the OnePlus 8T will be available for just €599 for the 8GB of RAM/ 128GB of storage version – but you may want to take this with a pinch of salt, as this price is a lot cheaper than other rumors.
