OnePlus is known for releasing smartphones followed by special editions in collaboration with different brands. We all remember its partnerships with McLaren, Star Wars, and Marvel's Avengers. It is now time for a new OnePlus 8T special edition that has been announced in partnership with Projekt Red, a Polish video game developer.
This new variant is called the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition that has currently been announced only in China. If you are someone who is into gaming, you must have heard about Cyberpunk 2077 which is one of the most anticipated video games of the year. The title was originally set for an early-2020 launch but was delayed until September. It faced another delay and is now set for a release on November 19th i.e. next month.
We only have a short video teaser to talk about for now. The video shows a few clips from the Cyberpunk 2077 game along with a glimpse of the smartphone. It seems like the phone has a Yellow accent on the borders which is inspired by the game's theme colors. There should also be a special edition case with the device as we have seen with other special edition phones.
The OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk Edition is set to go on preorders from November 4th in China. We do not have any information about the pricing and global availability details yet. We will keep you posted as and when more details will become public.
