OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has effectively confirmed that the OnePlus 8T Pro would not be released this year. The OnePlus 8T will instead be joined by a low-cost alternative, along with other OnePlus-branded smart devices. Industry insiders suggest that OnePlus has up to five products in store for us, unveiled on October 14.

Despite OnePlus's two-pronged smartphone release, the OnePlus 8T Pro's existence has been questioned several times. Although one report suggested that the smartphone was here to stay, the rumor mill's overwhelming consensus that the OnePlus 8T would be the only H2 2020 flagship from OnePlus. We now know for sure that the OnePlus 8T Pro will not be released later next month.

The information comes from straight from OnePlus CEO Pete Lau via a Weibo post (via Android Authority). Lau directs users who 'want a Pro-level experience' to the OnePlus 8 Pro. Based on what we know about the OnePlus 8T so far, we know that it'll be closer to the OnePlus 8 Pro than the OnePlus 8. For starters, both phones will use the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is quite surprising, considering that its predecessors almost always used a Plus variant whenever possible.

It'll be interesting to see what OnePlus will replace the OnePlus 8 Pro with this time. The most likely candidate at this points seems to be the sub-US$200 OnePlus Clover. We could even see the long-awaited OnePlus Watch make its debut. Renowned leaker Ishan Agarwal speculates that there will be a total of five products release on October 14.
