The design of the OnePlus 8T appears, is it a case of Samsungnification?

One of the brands that have taken the most force in the premium sector in Spain and many other countries is OnePlus. The manufacturer would be close to launching up to 5 new models for the Holiday campaign, and two of the most anticipated are the OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro, the best and most exclusive.

As usual, weeks before the official releases we are getting to know information about these models through leaks. In the last, we know the design of these terminals.

The OnePlus 8T shows its design
The famous OnLeaks filterer has posted images of what would be the OnePlus 8T in an exclusive for Pricebaba. It's a terminal with subtle changes from the OnePlus 8, but it follows a path that many might not like.

On the one hand, it seems that the screen would no longer have a curve, something that more than one user will appreciate, although the on-screen cropping for the front camera would end up keeping it as and where it was.

The most striking part is the rear camera module. The company will bet on a rectangular design for its module just as so many other manufacturers have done, differing less and less from its rivals.

The moment we meet it is inevitable to talk about Samsung. In recent weeks there has been quite a controversy in the OnePlus community due to the design changes of Oxygen OS, which left Android pure aside to bet on a software aesthetic reminiscent of Samsung's One UI. The company ended up justifying the decisions with its own usability studio, a decision that has not been accepted by the brand's most enthusiastic fans.

The question is, what comes to the company from the excellent camera module design we saw on the OnePlus 7T to opting for a more generic design? Perhaps abandon its most unique terminal essence to be lucky enough to attract new customers who mistake it for the Samsung on duty?

It wouldn't be much less the first time an OnePlus terminal has a certain aroma of other brands, as models like the 3 remembered HTC directly, while the 5 had a strong resemblance to the iPhone 7 Plus. What we've learned from history too is that OnePlus isn't afraid to change from year to year, experiment and risk.
