OnePlus confirmed off bits of the upcoming OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition at its China launch occasion for the phone. However, it’s hard to tell what’s so particular in regards to the phone. The picture OnePlus offered on stage exhibits a phone with yellow Cyberpunk-ish borders. We’re unsure if that is only a graphical representation based mostly on the upcoming game’s theme or if the phone will even have some cool yellow borders or edges that gentle up with the color.
