Warp Charge 65 – A Day’s Power in 15 Minutes

To circumvent heating issues from charging, the OnePlus 8T is equipped with 12 temperature sensors, along with an extra encryption chip in the adapter and cable, to keep charging temperatures at a comfortable level while operating at a peak output of 65W.
120Hz Fluid AMOLED Display
