Smartphone tie-ins have not had an excellent yr – the Nokia 8.3 5G was launched at the starting of the yr to coincide with the new Bond movie, No Time To Die, which was subsequently pushed again over a yr, and now a particular model of the OnePlus 8T themed round upcoming recreation Cyberpunk 2077 appears set to launch quickly, regardless of a current re-delay for the recreation.
On Chinese social media website Weibo, OnePlus acknowledged that the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 version, first introduced at the 8T launch, will get its personal unveiling on November 2. We initially heard the telephone can be on ‘pre-sale’ from November 4, but did not know the telephone can be getting its personal launch occasion.
It’s not clear if this is a worldwide launch or a China-only one – the format of communication would counsel the latter. If you are excited for this telephone and do not stay there, you may discover it simpler to purchase the commonplace OnePlus 8T, purchase a themed case for it, and set up a customized wallpaper to get the identical feeling.
Someone may want to inform OnePlus, nonetheless, that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed once more, with the launch date pushed again to mid-December. We had been anticipating the recreation to be launched in November, although earlier than that we had been informed September, and earlier than that April, so we should always have seen a delay coming.
Either approach, this implies the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 version shall be out there over a month earlier than the recreation is.
What is a Cyberpunk telephone?
We have not really heard too many specifics about how the Cyberpunk 2077 telephone is totally different to the commonplace OnePlus 8T, past one key factor: design.
A number of cryptic photos present the CyberPunk 2077 OnePlus 8T as having a black design with yellow highlights, in the identical type as a lot of the promotional materials for the recreation.
We have not heard something about specs or digicam energy but. If we had been to hazard a guess primarily based on different leisure smartphone tie-ins, we might count on it to be similar to the base machine but with a special design and maybe a particular game-themed wallpaper.
Would OnePlus host an entire launch occasion simply to totally unveil what’s principally the identical telephone? Perhaps not, so perhaps there are extra variations right here. If there is something vital at the launch, and if you’ll purchase this telephone ultimately, we’ll carry you all the related data, so keep tuned to TechRadar for these particulars.
