OnePlus 6T was scheduled to officially launch on October 30th in cities such as New York and New Delhi simultaneously. With everything set for October 30th, a twist happened yesterday when Apple announced the same date i.e. Oct 30 for their next launch event which unsettled OnePlus plans for OnePlus 6T and forced them to reconsider on launching OnePlus 6T on same day as that of an Apple event which usually overshadows every major tech event on that day.
OnePlus has finally announced a change in their launch date by preponing it by one day which means that the new launch date is now October 29th for the event in New York. At the moment, we are not sure if this change applies to the New Delhi event too as they were on the same day and same time. In our opinion, the New Delhi event too may be preponed by one day, but we should wait for the official confirmation.
OnePlus has released a detailed statement about this change of launch date with an honest explanation. We are just quoting a very brief part of that below, but you can read the forum post for more details.
So after deep reflection, we have decided to move the OnePlus 6T Launch Event in New York City to October 29.
