OnePlus 3, 3T, 5 and 5T Android 9.0 Pie Update Delayed

Oddly enough, Apple has recently disclosed its decision to hold their own next product launch on the same date. The company has shifted the launch event of its forthcoming flagship model from October 30, which was slated to happen the very next day in NY. Just a day later, and the OnePlus 6T unveiling has moved from the 30th to the 29th. The launch event, which is open to fans and the media, will begin at 11am EDT in NY, which is also where the Apple event is taking place. The decision was explained in a post by CEO Pete Lau on the OnePlus community forum: "So, imagine how we felt when we learned the date of their latest event". Starting with those of you who own a ticket, but won't be able to make the event. The saving grace here is that the company will be compensating them by offering goodies with every ticket.

The company has shifted the OnePlus 6 New York Launch event only.

As we near the end of the year, OnePlus fans eagerly await the reveal of the minor refresh to the OnePlus 6 announced earlier this year.

Lau says the company spoke to some press and were told they'd be "overshadowed by Apple" if they stuck to their original launch date. The recent reports suggest that OnePlus 6T might get the CDMA compatibility to work with Verizon network, but Verizon won't be selling it in their stores. However, according to a recent listing on a Swedish e-commerce website, Webhallen, what appears to be a limited edition of the upcoming flagship smartphone, the "OnePlus 6T Ultimate Limited Edition" has appeared. Unfortunately, people who are still using the Oneplus 3 and 5 series will reportedly have to wait longer to get the official Android Pie update. OnePlus is getting rid of the headphone jack, and including an under-display fingerprint sensor.

Naturally this is worse news for people attending the launch event in NY, and to make up for things, and not lose any faith from the community, OnePlus has offered refunds for those unable to make it - as well as covering the cost of any fees resulting from changing travel plans.

"We received considered, honest and thoughtful feedback".

One of the first things we know is the fact that the OnePlus 6T will come in three variants and they will pack between 6GB to 8GB of RAM and 128GB to 256GB worth of internal storage.
