- According to a new leak, OnePlus will not launch a 9T series at all.
- This comes after rumors that only the OnePlus 9T Pro will be left out.
OnePlus has traditionally launched a T variant after its most important flagship series, which is to serve as an upgrade at the end of the year. This year, a lot of fans are likely waiting for the OnePlus 9T series instead of grabbing the company’s current option. According to reliable tipsters Max Jambor, OnePlus will not be releasing a T revision for the OnePlus 9 series.
The tip comes after last month’s rumors that the company wouldn’t launch a OnePlus 9T Pro variant. Considering there wasn’t a OnePlus 8T Pro, the leak seemed reasonable. It also didn’t rule out the existence of the OnePlus 9T. However, Jambor now casts doubt on the entire line of equipment.
Why should OnePlus scrap the 9T?
This year, due to the global shortage of chips, manufacturers were forced to revise their device ranges. OnePlus has also ruled out certain OnePlus 9-series storage options that are reaching North America due to delivery bottlenecks. It is not for nothing that the company cannot bring out a T series this year due to a lack of silicon.
Alternatively, the move could be part of the company’s larger integration with Oppo or a plan to simplify its device lines. We found the OnePlus 8T to be way too similar to the company’s other devices to really stand out. Perhaps OnePlus could consider streamlining its offerings to better differentiate them.
So what do you think of that? At the moment we cannot confirm Jambor’s claim. The tipster has a proven track record, but we recommend reading this information with caution. OnePlus traditionally launches its T series in the fourth quarter, so there is plenty of time to change the situation. Also, expect a lot of tips and rumors to pop up long before that.
