The OnePlus promotional train has once again departed the station with the destination for the OnePlus 8T launch event. In the past few days, we have seen a partial spec sheet of the device as well thanks to a leaked render on the front of the phone. We expect the phone to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, 6.55-inch 120Hz OLED display, 48MP quad camera setup, and OxygenOS 11 out-of-the-box with Android 11. We also learned that the company may plan to announce its first smartwatch, which may be called the OnePlus Watch. But there is a distinct reduction in leaks for the OnePlus 8T. Supporter Sample. There is also no mention of such a device in OnePlus’s OxygenOS 11 firmware, where the 8T render was found. It turns out, there may not be an 8T Pro model at all.
We raised this possibility in our article about the 8T spec sheet leaked last week. We mentioned that, when we found a lot of evidence for the OnePlus 8T “kebab” model with a “kebab” (possibly US T-Mobile) version, we could not find references to other “kebab” variants, specifically From “Kebab” or “Kebab 2”. The latter two would indicate the existence of a “pro” model as is customary with the code-naming scheme of OnePlus.
Known leaker Max J took to Twitter today, stating that there would be no “Kebab 2”. Again, He answered someone Confirming that he was indeed talking about the lack of OnePlus 8T Pro models. Add this to the fact that we haven’t really seen any leaks for the Pro model yet, and everything seems to make more sense. While you can still attribute the lack of leaks to the Pro model to the possibility that nothing has been discovered yet, the odds are looking quite serious as our own excavations have revealed, the launch date And Proximity J Max’s stellar record on OnePlus leaks.

Last year’s OnePlus 7T Pro seemed like “more of the same” to Adam, as he noted in his review. It was the same phone as the OnePlus 7 Pro with a lot of improvement. The OnePlus 7T, however, was the real star of the show as an advanced upgrade over the OnePlus 7. It is possible that the same situation would have happened with the OnePlus 8T Pro, which may have been scrapped by the company. The McLaren partnership also ended a few months ago, so if the 8T Pro really saw the light of day, it would not have a McLaren version.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is already an excellent device in many respects, however. So if you really need the extras that come with the Pro model, you might consider looking at it instead. After all, the OnePlus 7T Pro shared 95% of its DNA with the OnePlus 7 Pro, so you really won’t miss much.
