Today, it’s all about the glossy glass back on the Aquamarine Green version of the upcoming OnePlus 8T. This is a phone that we’ll see launched on October 14th, but the shiny glass rear-end will apparently give the phone a translucent and refined look. Plus, if the other OnePlus phones are anything to go by, you’ll probably be getting a see-through case in the box so you can continue to enjoy the shiny posterior whilst keeping it protected.
A OnePlus blog post states that…
Our ID engineers have explored ways to bring out the translucent and glossy texture of the glass, while maintaining a thin and sturdy profile that also reduces fingerprint accumulation. After exploring countless iterations with different CMFs (color, material and finish) for more than 4 months, we achieved a breakthrough and produced a remarkable glossy back cover for the new Aquamarine Green variant of the OnePlus 8T. This version takes advantage of diffuse reflection, a form of light refraction that scatters light in an expansive array of angles and directions, to produce a clean, gleaming surface that effectively mitigates the buildup of fingerprints.
As usual, we’ll have all the coverage live from the event and a hands-on with the phone shortly after. The back of the Green model has a surface which is made up of 7 layers created using one of the most advanced finishings in the industry.
