OnePlus pushes its 6T launch event up to avoid Apple overlap

OnePlus 6T to launch with Android Pie, update delayed for older devices

Cult smartphone maker OnePlus gets great reviews, but it hasn't broken into the U.S. mainstream yet because of a lack of carrier relationships. In order to get more eyeballs, OnePlus has made the tough choice to reschedule its launch event.

The launch event is slated to begin at 8.30 pm on October 30 and attendees can check in the venue from 5.00 pm till 7.00 pm when the doors will be closed for entry. Earlier this month, the company had announced that it will launch the OnePlus 6T at an event in NY on October 30. In a post on the OnePlus forum, the company teased some interesting new stuff on the software front, including a "whole new UI that you will have to experience for yourself to really understand". Similar to its previous smartphone launch events, in the days leading up to the launch, the company is dropping hints and teasers like a clock-work to build up the hype.

As ambitious and passionate as we all are, we have to acknowledge the reality of this situation. There are no winners here. But, we have to remain realistic.

"To those affected, we know sorry isn't good enough". It is also taking the ambitious move of covering any costs for travel and lodging changes.

With the announcement of the launch of OnePlus 6T by the Chinese phone maker just few months after the launch of OnePlus 6, many speculations has been made about the phone on its features, availability and specifications. They'll be contacting everyone who purchased a ticket to offer them a full refund of their ticket price.

If you're still able to join our event, first of all: Thank you! They'll also be paying any additional expenses incurred because of the change of plans, such as rescheduling flights or hotel rooms.

In a recent interview with TechRadar, Carl Pei, one of OnePlus' co-founders, said: "By removing the jack we've freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product".

Well done OnePlus on not just being pig headed and keeping the event at the same time but for helping out your fans and community who had already organised to be there on the 30th October at 11am EDT.

"We hope that you will understand our decision". As we continue to grow, we will continue to challenge this industry together. The OnePlus 6T would probably be an LTE-only phone on Verizon. It'll be a big week in NY.
