OnePlus 8T is likely to sport an ultra-wide-angle front camera, a teaser video indicates. OnePlus tweeted a short video clip that hints at an ultra-wide-angle selfie snapper situated in hole-pinch cutout in the top left corner of the display. The company hasn’t delved out any information on the resolution of the camera, and we’ll have to wait for a few more days to get official information on the same. The OnePlus 8T will be launched at a virtual event which is scheduled on October 14.
The tweet shared by OnePlus has a small video clip which shows a smartphone, which is allegedly the OnePlus 8T, with hole-punch display. There is a camera inside the hole-punch and the text aligned to it reads, “Lights, Camera, Ultra”. This may be a reference to an ultra wide-angle selfie camera, though the blinking red light that is sign alongside the lens in the video may be referring to a focussing or colour correction method, or even a new video recording feature. The company hasn’t shared any other information in this regard and the megapixel count of the camera in question remains unknown. The recently-launched OnePlus Nord features two front cameras — 32-megapixel wide camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide snapper.
