OnePlus is nothing new to tie-ins with brands and franchises, but its latest limited edition will probably take the cake. Very similar to the regular OnePlus 8T in terms of features and specs, this limited Cyberpunk 2077 edition just announced in China enhances the game while embracing the beauty of the upcoming game. For better or worse, the camera bump result does not seem futuristic, taking up more space than any annoying camera module Samsung has ever made.
Truth be told, the camera module is at least compatible with the cyberpunk spirit that connects the future with the past. Although the bump now takes up full width on the back of the phone, the extra space is largely useless and used to display the game name. It would have been nice if OnePlus actually had LEDs on the back of that logo.
On the back of the phone is OnePlus’ old sandstone design, with yellow accents along the edges and another black part at the bottom with the name Cyberpunk. OnePlus is basically changing the shape of the back of this game for tie-in, which is in stark contrast to the many accessories designed specifically to fit the OnePlus 8T. Again, you don’t want to make a case for it anyway.
There will be no changes to the front of the phone and users will have to resort to special hydrogenOS themes specially made for this CyberPunk 2077 Limited Edition run. Save the charger and USB cable for your common OnePlus accessories, the game name labeled on the power brick.
The OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk Edition 3,999 RMB in China, approximately $ 598, slightly more expensive than the standard model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. This themed phone, not limited to numbers, is limited to China, leaving cyberpunk fans in other markets in the cold.
