Stunning Cyberpunk 2077 tie-in transforms the look of the OnePlus 8T

The highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 action-adventure role-playing video game from CD Projekt Red has been delayed until December 10, but smartphone maker OnePlus has done no such thing with its tie-in special edition OnePlus 8T. Announced in China, the limited edition phone looks completely different from the standard 8T, and we think you’re going to want one.

OnePlus’s 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition is a marketing exercise through-and-through, so don’t expect it to have any different specifications to the OnePlus 8T you can buy now. Instead, it’s all about the amazing new style. The team has used the black and yellow color scheme from the game’s promo material to great effect, using it to highlight the sides, corners, and buttons on the device.

Perhaps the most striking design change is the camera module, which has been blended into a large glass panel taking up the top of the phone. It stops the 8T looking a lot like the Galaxy S20 Plus. The rest of the phone has a textured, carbon fiber-style design, and some Cyberpunk 2077 branding. It’s dramatically different from the standard OnePlus 8T. The phone has custom wallpapers and tones, plus the special box comes with a case to protect the phone, and some Cyberpunk 2077 pins too.

While the specification is the same as usual, OnePlus has created two special camera filters for the phone, which add cyberpunk-style color schemes to your photos. It’s all based on the OnePlus 8T with 8GB of RAM and 256GB and costs the local equivalent of $598, which is slightly more expensive than the standard 8GB/256GB OnePlus 8T in China. Pre-orders will go live on November 4 with a final release coming on November 11. At the time of writing, there is no word on a global release.

OnePlus is no stranger to striking up interesting partnerships. It has worked with McLaren, the supercar brand, on several occasions. The most recent being a concept phone with unusual electrochromic glass hiding the camera lenses on the back of the phone. It has also released a special Star Wars-themed edition of the OnePlus 5T in 2017. The Cyberpunk 2077 edition is the company’s first limited edition based on the recently released OnePlus 8T.

The OnePlus Pad looks incredible — except for one peculiar thing
OnePlus Pad held in hand.

For years, there has been talk about OnePlus releasing a tablet. That day has finally come, and OnePlus now has the OnePlus Pad, which is officially launching on May 8. I’ve been using one for the past few weeks, and for the most part, the tablet looks great — though the software is a bit lacking.

However, I have some qualms about OnePlus’ decision to place a single, large camera sensor right smack dab in the top middle of a tablet that is designed for horizontal use. How did this not bother whoever came up with it? Maybe I’m using my tablets wrong, but I doubt it.
The OnePlus Pad has a very premium design

The back of the OnePlus Pad tablet.

Fans who are excited to finally be getting their hands on the OnePlus Pad are now able to preorder the tablet ... sort of.

Preorders for the OnePlus Pad went live today. However, it's not a preorder in the traditional sense where someone would pay full price for an item upfront and then receive it when it launches for no extra charge. Instead, fans are able to put down a $99 down payment to reserve their spot in "line" for the tablet when it releases later this year.
