This device looks to have a set of four cameras on its back, for example, with a 48MP camera as the main shooter with optical image stabilization and between 14-26mm lenses to choose from. There's a dual-LED flash back there as well, and two clear details for material aesthetics: "high matte glass" and a "high gloss logo."

OnePlus 8T Pro is a no-go, new Nord, OnePlus World teased

The OnePlus 8T is shaping up to be a rather interesting phone, mostly because it seems to straddle the thin line between "regular" and "Pro" flagships.

Turns out the speculation is correct but OnePlus may have other shiny new things to make up for that loss.

OnePlus 8T Warp Charge 65 promises a full charge in 39 minutes

As thin and as powerful we may want our smartphones to be, we are mostly held back by one of its most rigid and most volatile components, the battery. Battery technology has barely moved forward in the past years, leaving manufacturers and engineers to design around it, from trying to improve power efficiency to make charging faster.

That includes pretty much confirming some of the features and details of a new smartphone ahead of its release.
