- OnePlus has announced the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition phone.
- The device will be available for pre-sale from November 9.
OnePlus recently announced the OnePlus 8T in China and there was a surprise announcement at the event that we did not expect. The company has partnered with Polish video game developer CD Projekt Red for a special edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on the OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus showed bits from the upcoming OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition at its phone launch event in China. However, it is difficult to say what is so special about the phone. The OnePlus image shown on stage shows a phone with yellow cyberpunk borders. We’re not sure if this is just a graphic presentation based on the theme of the upcoming game, or if the phone will actually have some cool yellow frames or edges that glow with color.
What we do know is that this special version of the Cyberpunk 2077 on the OnePlus 8T will go on pre-sale from November 4th. This is just a few weeks before the start of the game on November 19. OnePlus also posted a video teaser for the phone on its Weibo account. You can check it out below.
This isn’t the first time OnePlus has released a special edition flagship phone. Before that, we saw the company’s partner with McLaren, Star Wars and Marvel launch phones with prominent designs. However, this is the first time that OnePlus has tied a gaming studio to a version of its flagship phone.
During the announcement of the phone, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said (machine translation) that its design is at a high level of coordination with the CD Projekt Red team. Lau promised to reveal more details in two weeks.
For what it’s worth, we expect to see some special gaming features in the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077. It would also make sense for the OnePlus to upgrade the phone’s processor to Snapdragon 865 Plus and / or deliver more RAM or memory to increase performance. . Unfortunately, the company still has no news on the matter.
We contacted OnePlus for more details on the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077. We will update this article when and if OnePlus responds to our request. In the meantime, you can check out our review of the OnePlus 8T here.
