It’s official: We’re not getting a OnePlus 8T Pro

It’s official: We’re not getting a OnePlus 8T Pro

OnePlus has offered a Pro variant of the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 8 series, but a major leak earlier this month pointed to the company skipping out on a OnePlus 8T Pro.

Now, OnePlus founder and CEO Liu Zuohu (aka Pete Lau) has confirmed on Weibo that the OnePlus 8T Pro won’t accompany the OnePlus 8T. Check out the post below.

 It’s official: We’re not getting a OnePlus 8T Pro

Lau directs users wanting a “Pro-level” phone to get the OnePlus 8 Pro instead. The machine-translated text also suggests that OnePlus felt they couldn’t deliver 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 wasn’t a major upgrade from the OnePlus 7 Pro at all. However, the OnePlus 7T earned critical acclaim for gaining several major upgrades over the OnePlus 7, such as a high refresh rate screen and a telephoto rear camera. So it seems like the company doesn’t want to repeat the OnePlus 7T Pro situation of launching a Pro model for the sake of it.

OnePlus 8T rumors and teases point to a great flagship on paper, but the OnePlus 8 Pro still seems to offer a few extra features over the upcoming phone.

The 8T is expected to offer a 120Hz screen, a 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. Leaks and official disclosures point to the OnePlus 8T missing the three former features, while water/dust resistance isn’t confirmed yet either.
