Leak suggests that OnePlus will not release the OnePlus 8T Pro this year
With the year-end drawing closer, only a handful of major Android smartphone releases are left in the tank. One of them is OnePlus' upcoming OnePlus 8T series. While it is widely known that it will be an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 8, some interesting information has surfaced about OnePlus' upcoming flagship.
Renowned leaker MaxJ hints that OnePlus will deviate from its two-pronged flagship approach, indicating that the company has no plans to release a 'Pro' version of the OnePlus 8T. For additional context, OnePlus refers to the OnePlus 8T as 'Kebab' in its internal communications.
An earlier leak told us that the OnePlus 8T would come with a 120Hz 6.5-inch AMOLED panel, a feature reserved for 'Pro' models of OnePlus phones. Additionally, it's quad-camera array would feature an improved version of the OnePlus 8's 48MP camera sensor.
Does this mean that OnePlus has only one phone in store for us? Probably not. The rumor mill has been lit with mentions of an affordable OnePhone called the OnePlus Clover/OnePlus Nord Lite. It will come as no surprise if OnePlus releases a low-cost alternative along with the OnePlus 8T, as it falls in line with the company's commitment to making its devices accessible to more people.
