The OnePlus 8T is the upcoming smartphone from OnePlus that's set to give the iPhone 12 a run for its money, with a better display, a processor that will rival Apple's A14 SoC, and quad camera system.
The iPhone 12 will launch with four models while it looks like the OnePlus 8T won't be accompanied by a Pro variant, but that won't matter too much now that it's come to light that it has the iPhone 12 beat on the pricing front too.

According to a leaked Amazon listing, shared by Twitter leaker Ishan Agarwal (opens in new tab) the OnePlus 8T will be available in two formats, with the 8GB/128GB model coming in at €599 and the 12GB/256GB model priced at €699, which he comments could be "too good" to be true.

Using a direct conversion (which is rarely how pricing for most products work), we're looking at a starting price of $699/ £550. Bearing in mind that the iPhone 12's base model is said to start at $699 and may be housing a mid-range B14 processor, as well as lacking the specs the 8T offers, it's a no brainer as to which smartphone offers the best bang for your buck.

As we saw from the OnePlus 8T video, the smartphone looks stunning, with a 6.5-inch 120Hz display, and quad camera setup.
While Google is said to be slashing the Pixel 5 price to around €629, the handset will sit in the mid-tier range, so if these leaked prices and specs are accurate, of the slew of smartphones launching in the next month or two, the OnePlus 8T looks like the winner.
