OnePlus officially removed the wraps from its latest flagship, the OnePlus 8T, globally last night. The company held a separate event to launch the smartphone in China. But, who knew OnePlus might have a jaw-dropping surprise up its sleeve. Along with the standard 8T, the company today announced in China the “OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition”. OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition will be available for preorder starting on November 4, just a couple of weeks before the game’s official launch. Cyberpunk 2077, for those of you who don’t know, is an open world RPG action game set in Night City. It will be available to play on all major platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
OnePlus is no stranger to partnerships for its new flagship launches. We’ve already seen McLaren and Star Wars Special Edition OnePlus phones in recent years. Now, the company has teamed up with popular game developer CD Projekt Red. Today it announced a limited edition OnePlus 8T to celebrate the launch of its long-awaited AAA game, Cyberpunk 2077.
The Chinese phone maker shared a short teaser video along with the announcement. However, it only shows the front of the OnePlus 8T. What do you think the back panel will look like? Building on other limited-edition Cyberpunk 2077 products released in recent weeks, we can expect the OnePlus 8T to feature a neon yellow back panel with angular lines to reflect the game’s futuristic (and cyber) theme.
In an official tweet, CD Project Red’s lead PR manager Radek Grabowski revealed that the CP2077 limited edition variant of the OnePlus 8T is coming soon. The company will share more details in November, but there is an important caveat here. This partnership will be exclusive to China (for now at least), so if you were hoping for this device to make its way to India or the US In the short term, you’re out of luck.
