- OnePlus has confirmed that there will be no OnePlus 8T Pro.
- The company is instead referring users to the OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus offered a Pro variant of the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 8 series, but a major leak earlier this month indicated that the company would be jumping on the OnePlus 8T Pro.
Now, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau has confirmed on Weibo that OnePlus 8T Pro will not accompany OnePlus 8T. Check out the post below.
Lau directs users who want a “pro-grade” phone to get the OnePlus 8 Pro instead. The auto-translated text also suggests that OnePlus felt it could not provide a major upgrade from the OnePlus 8 Pro by offering a OnePlus 8T Pro.
For what it’s worth, last year’s OnePlus 7T Pro was by no means a major upgrade from OnePlus 7 Pro. However, OnePlus 7T garnered critical acclaim for getting several major upgrades over OnePlus 7, such as a high-frequency screen upgrade and a rear telephoto camera. So it seems the company doesn’t want to repeat the OnePlus 7T Pro plight of launching a Pro model for the fun of it.
The OnePlus 8T rumors and teasing point to a great flagship on paper, but the OnePlus 8 Pro still seems to offer some extra features over the upcoming phone.
The 8T is expected to offer a 120Hz screen, 4,500mAh battery, and faster wired charging. However, the 8 Pro adds wireless charging, a telephoto rear camera, a higher resolution ultra-wide camera, and an IP rating. The leaks and official revelations indicate that the OnePlus 8T lacks the previous three features, while the water / dust resistance has not yet been confirmed.
