Uh oh, this is not what prospective OnePlus 8T buyers wanted to hear. That's because according to a new leak the phone is slated to come with a nasty surprise that will make the phone a challenging proposition for many phone users.

As reported by respected tech website TechRadar (opens in new tab), a leak from Twitter user @chunvn8888 (opens in new tab) has revealed that the OnePlus 8T is actually going to cost more than the outgoing OnePlus 8. The tweet can be viewed in full below:

As can be seen in the tweet, Chun states that the OnePlus 8T will cost €799 (about $940, £730, AU$1,300) for the version of the phone that comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage, while the more premium model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage will cost €899 (that's roughly $1,050, £830, AU$1,470).

For the record, the OnePlus 8 cost $699 / £599 / €709 (around AU$1,100) at launch.

That means that the OnePlus 8T, if this leak proves true, is about to foist a large price increase on users.

€899 in any currency is a lot of money, we're talking serious flagship-grade, everything is best-in-class territory here, so it will be interesting to see whether or not the OnePlus 8T lives up to this premium price point.
