For those who were waiting for OnePlus 8T Pro to launch this year, there is some bad news.
CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau has announced that 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 OnePlus 8 Pro is a flagship smartphone and therefore, launching another Pro series the same year will not be a good decision.
Instead of launching OnePlus 8T Pro, the company has hinted that they are going to release has a new smartphone in the OnePlus Nord series. This phone is expected to be released alongside OnePlus 8T on 14th October 2020.
Lau took to his official Weibo account to inform users that the company will not launch OnePlus 8T Pro alongside the OnePlus 8T.
He also mentioned in his post that launching a mid-year upgrade will not be a good decision. That’s because OnePlus 8T is itself a flagship phone and comes with all the features they have to offer. The company decided to postpone the launch of OnePlus 8T Pro while keeping this in mind.
This means the company will release only OnePlus 8T this year. The good news is that this is also a flagship model that is scheduled to release on 14th October.
The company also announced the launch of another new phone in the Nord series. However, this is an affordable phone and not a flagship model. However, the launch date of the phone is yet to be confirmed by the company.
There are rumours that this new phone from the Nord series can be released alongside the OnePlus 8T on 14th October which is next month. However, this is not confirmed information from the company.
