Every year OnePlus launches four phones, two of which are “Pro” models for the year. However, this year OnePlus will not be launching an OnePlus 8T Pro variant and to be honest, the company didn’t really need to in the first place.
According to an accurate translation, Lau’s statement also suggests that OnePlus couldn’t really deliver a major upgrade from the OnePlus 8 Pro this year saying “there is no room for an upgrade.”
Much like any “T” nomenclature device by OnePlus, these devices haven’t really been a major upgrade from phones the company launched six months prior. In fact, the OnePlus 7T Pro did not have any significant gain over the OnePlus 7 Pro last year. This move will not only save OnePlus money, but it also makes sense as launching two Pro models a year is not really going to tip the scales by a significant amount.
