- OnePlus has announced the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition phone.
- The device will be pre-sale starting November 9th.
OnePlus recently announced the OnePlus 8T in China and there was a surprise announcement of the event we did not expect. The company has partnered with Polish video game developer CD Projekt Red for a special edition of the Cyberpunk 2077 of the OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus unveiled pieces of the upcoming OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition at its launch in China for the phone. However, it is difficult to say what is special about the phone. The OnePlus image displayed on stage shows a phone with yellow Cyberpunk-ish borders. We’re not sure if this is just a graphic representation based on the theme of the upcoming game or if the phone has really cool yellow borders or color-burning edges.
What we do know is that this special version of Cyberpunk 2077 of the OnePlus 8T will be up for sale starting November 4. Just a few weeks before the game launches on November 19. OnePlus also posted a video teaser for the phone on his Weibo account. You can check it out below.
This is not the first time OnePlus has released a special edition of the flagship. We’ve previously seen the company partner with McLaren, Star Wars, and Marvel to launch phones with stand-out designs. However, this is the first time OnePlus has teamed up with a gaming studio for a version of its flagship.
In a phone announcement, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau (machine translated) said that its design took a high level of coordination with the CD Projekt Red team. Lau promised to reveal more details after two weeks.
For what it means, we expect to see some dedicated gaming features in the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 edition. It would also make sense for OnePlus to upgrade the phone processor to the Snapdragon 865 Plus and / or deliver more RAM or storage for a performance boost. Sadly, there is no word yet from the company about this matter.
We reached out to OnePlus to get some more details about the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 edition. We will update this article when and if OnePlus responds to our query. In the meantime, you can check out our review of the OnePlus 8T here.
