OnePlus 6T: Release Delayed? Teaser Hints Surprise
The OnePlus 6T is on par with the Google Pixel 3 and the iPhone X Plus when it comes to the excitement that it inspires in the tech buying public. However, it looks like tech fans will have to wait a bit longer before they can get their hands on the smartphone.
OnePlus 6T release moved to January 2019?
There is a big chance that the release of the OnePlus device will be pushed back, according to WCCFTech. It is said that the smartphone’s official release date will be on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
Experts and tech buyers were expecting the next OnePlus device to arrive this year. This will put it in direct competition with major smartphones that will be released this year like the Google Pixel 3 and the iPhone X Plus. It seems that the company will want to maximize the presence of the OnePlus 6 in the market first. This is unlike what happened with the OnePlus 5, which was replaced within three months by the OnePlus 5T.
The release of the OnePlus 6T is also especially exciting because it will be the first device from the company that will be sold with a U.S. carrier. Reports say that T-Mobile is in negotiations with OnePlus to become the company’s official American partner, according to Pocket Now. This will enable the OnePlus device to effectively compete with the Google Pixel 3, Samsung flagship devices and the iPhone X Plus.
It is also possible that the smartphone will be among the first 5G phones to ever reach retail. This is because Oppo is a leading candidate to bring the first 5G smartphone to fruition and OnePlus is its sister company. This is said to be what a teaser of the upcoming phone is hinting.
