According to the latest rumors, OnePlus 8T Pro may be cancelled this year. OnePlus is expected to release its 8 series’T’ update at the end of September, but this time, we may only get one model instead of the usual two models. We have recently heard a lot of rumors about OnePlus 8T specifications, but there are very few rumors about 8T Pro. If a rumor shared by a known salesman turns out to be true, many fans may be disappointed, but from the perspective of OnePlus, it makes sense.
The news comes from a reliable whistleblower Max J. (@MaxJmb), Tweet A picture of the word “Kabab2” with a “No” symbol on it. Kebab is considered to be the code name of OnePlus 8T, and Kabab2 is 8T Pro. Apart from this rumor, there is nothing to do at this point, but given his track record, this may be true.
OnePlus 8 Pro is already a full-featured smartphone, and judging from the time I spent reviewing the phone, it does not have any obvious problems that need to be refreshed. On the other hand, in comparison, OnePlus 8 (review) has many missing features, which does not fully prove its high-end price. In fact, OnePlus Nord (review) managed to make it more competitive at a much lower price.
Most of these shortcomings should be repaired by OnePlus 8T. A recent leak indicated that the phone will be equipped with a 120Hz AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC and quad rear camera module. The latter is said to have a new 48-megapixel main camera. It is not clear whether OnePlus will add IP rating and wireless charging to the 8T, it should definitely consider selling it at a higher price compared to the existing OnePlus 8 variant. The 8T may also have OnePlus’ new 65W fast charging feature, which has been leaked several times in the past.
