OnePlus had earlier intimated users that it would release a Cyberpunk 2077 themed version of its latest phone, OnePlus 8T. The Chinese company has launched the smartphone though it will only be available for sale in China for now.
The action video game-themed phone is quite different from the standard edition of the OnePlus 8T featuring designs from what had been glimpsed from the promotional materials released for Cyberpunk 2077. The themed smartphone bears the distinctive yellow color of the video game which is yet to be released.
The back panel of the phone bears the true markings of the video game. It is divided into three parts. The first part is a gigantic glass panel for the back camera of the phone with the letters “2077” inscribed. The second part is also made of glass but it’s not as clear as the camera panel. The last part has a darker shade than the middle part and features the logo of the video game.
The phone is made even more unique with its customized glow in the dark casing which alternates between different colors and brightness depending on the natural light in its environment. While the released pictures might not be your first glimpse at the design of the Cyberpunk 2077 themed OnePlus 8T, it is certainly the clearest set of pictures offering views of the different angles of the phone.
The front panel of the themed phone is quite similar to what is available on the standard version but it features Cyberpunk 2077 liver wallpapers, a fingerprint- unlock animation that looks like the artificial retina scanner used in the video game. The themed phone however still maintains the specs of the standard version of the OnePlus 8T. It has a 6.55 1080 × 2400 AMOLED screen, quad cameras featuring a 48-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization, a 16 MP ultra-wide range camera, a 5 MP camera, and a 2 MP camera.
The phone comes with a heavy 4,500 mAh battery capacity with an impressive 65W fast charging. Powered by Android 11, it also comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.1. It will cost about CNY 3,999 (around $600). When released in the United States, the price might, however, be different from the converted rate. Buyers in China can purchase the phone from November 11, though OnePlus has not released a date for its release in other countries.
The Cyberpunk 2077 OnePlus 8T is the most recent themed phone from OnePlus. The company has produced other themed phones including the Avengers-themed OnePlus 6, the McLaren version of the OnePlus 6T, and a Star Wars edition of the OnePlus 5T. The action video game Cyberpunk 2077 has been recently delayed and scheduled to be released on December 10.
