OnePlus Confirms No 9T This Year

OnePlus co-founder and CEO Pete Lau has confirmed in an interview that no new “T” series device will be launched this year like they typically do every year. The CEO and founder also confirms that next year’s 2022 flagship device will run a new operating system following its merger with Oppo The company had announced this back in July.

The “T” series phones have always been minor additions to the already existing flagship devices of the brand. The OnePlus 7T featured a 90Hz display over the 7 and the 8T had twice as fast charging speeds as the 8. The first T series phone came out back in 2016 with the OnePlus 3T and the company has been releasing T phones every 6 months after their flagship launch ever since. This is the first year we don’t see a T series phone.

As for the new operating system, OnePlus says it will have the advantages of both, OnePlus’ OxygenOS and Oppo’s ColorOS in one. It will be “fast and smooth” and “clean and lightweight” like OxygenOS, while also being “reliable” and “smart and feature-rich” like ColorOS. Pete also mentions that the underlying codebase for the operating systems will be the same but they will continue to have their own unique branding. He also goes on to mention that the team behind the operating systems will be unified.

OnePlus tells The Verge that integrating its operations with Oppo was necessary to make it more efficient, and would streamline its R&D resources “to support more products and work more efficiently.” This merger will also allow both brands to make the systems better and more efficient overall while also enabling them to release software updates more frequently. We can also expect integration between WARP charging and SuperVOOC charging in the future.

OnePlus fans are sad to see no new T series phone this year but the integration of OnePlus and Oppo could see some huge improvements in both brands leading to a very interesting future!
