For those who were waiting for the launch of OnePlus 8T Pro this year, there is bad news for them.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has announced that the OnePlus 8T Pro will not be released this year.
In his announcement, he said that the company has decided not to launch the smartphone this year. He also said that the OnePlus 8 Pro is a flagship smartphone and hence launching another Pro Series in the same year would not be a good decision.
Instead of launching the OnePlus 8T Pro, the company has indicated that they are going to release a new smartphone in the OnePlus Nord series. This phone is expected to be released on October 14, 2020 with OnePlus 8T.
Lau informed users on his official Weibo account that the company would not launch OnePlus 8T Pro with OnePlus 8T.
He also mentioned in his post that launching a mid-year upgrade would not be a good decision. This is because the OnePlus 8T is a flagship phone in its own right and comes with all the features they have to offer. Keeping this in mind, the company decided to postpone the launch of OnePlus 8T Pro.
This means that the company will release only OnePlus 8T this year. The good news is that it is also a flagship model which is scheduled to be released on 14 October.
The company also announced the launch of another new phone in the Nord series. However, it is an affordable phone and not a flagship model. However, the launch date of the phone has not been confirmed by the company yet.
There are rumors that this new phone of the Nord series may be released with the OnePlus 8T on October 14, which is next month. However, this has not been confirmed by the company.
