Following months of speculations, the OnePlus 8T Pro has been officially canceled for this year. The 8T Pro was expected to debut alongside OnePlus 8T, but it seems that it is no longer the case now.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, under the name “Liu Zuohu”, made the public announcement on the Chinese social media site, Weibo. He noted that plans for an 8T Pro were snubbed as there was “no room for upgrade” after the OnePlus 8 Pro. He also hailed OnePlus 8 Pro as “the annual machine king”.
Looking back at the specifications of the 8 Pro, it’s hard to argue with the Chinese smartphone giant’s confidence in the device. OnePlus 8 Pro, which launched in April, boasts a range of premium features including 120 Hz Fluid AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865, and wireless charging.
On the other hand, OnePlus 8T, which is set to release on October 14, is expected to arrive with flagship features such as 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865+ SoC, 65W fast-charging, etc.
Apart from the 8T, OnePlus is also expected to announce new additions to its Nord lineup of mid-range smartphones during the event. OnePlus Nord’s cryptic Instagram post with the caption “#ComingSoon” is a major hint towards the rumored OnePlus Nord N10 5G.
Although OnePlus 8T Pro has been canceled for this year, OnePlus fans still have a lot to look forward to. However, those of you who were waiting for the 8T Pro should instead go for the 8 Pro now, which is the most premium offering from the smartphone titan in 2020.
