- OnePlus has confirmed that OnePlus 8T Pro will not.
- The company is instead directing users for the OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus has offered the Pro variants of the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 8 Series, but a big leak earlier this month pointed to the company dropping out on the OnePlus 8T Pro.
Now, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau has confirmed on Weibo that OnePlus 8T Pro will not be with OnePlus 8T. See the post below.
Lau directs users who want a “pro-level” phone to get the OnePlus 8 Pro. The machine-translated text also suggests that OnePlus felt that they could not offer major upgrades from OnePlus 8T Pro to OnePlus 8 Pro.
For what it’s worth, last year’s OnePlus 7T Pro was not a major upgrade from the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, the OnePlus 7T earned critical acclaim over the OnePlus 7 receiving several major upgrades, such as a higher refresh rate screen and a telephoto rear camera. So it seems that the company does not want to repeat the situation of launching the Pro model of OnePlus 7T.
OnePlus 8T rumors and teasing point to a major flagship on paper, but OnePlus 8 Pro still offers some additional features on upcoming phones.
The 8T is expected to offer a 120Hz screen, 4,500mAh battery, and fast wired charging. However, the 8 Pro adds wireless charging, a telephoto rear camera, a high-resolution ultra-wide camera and an IP rating. Leaks and official revelations point to the OnePlus 8T not missing three prior features, while water / dust resistance is yet to be confirmed.
