According to past rumors, OnePlus 6T was supposed to be launched on October 17th, but this turned out to be incorrect and it was later officially announced that the newest OnePlus’ device will make its debut on October 30th in New York City. However, it looks like the launch event might be ruined, as Apple plans to unveil its new devices, iPad Pro 2018 and Macs, in the same place and at the same time.
Apple will take OnePlus’ spotlight
OnePlus 6T is expected to be an improvement over OnePlus 6, which itself makes this smartphone quite exciting. Unfortunately for the Chinese company, the media attention on the day of its launch will surely be focused on Apple and its new devices, even though OnePlus 6T, a smartphone, is not a direct competitor of iPad Pro and iMac.
Huawei and Google already launched their smartphones
But this is not the only worry for OnePlus. The fact that they will hold the event at the end of October gives a huge advantage to Huawei and Google, who already unveiled their smartphones, Mate 20 Pro and Pixel 3, earlier this month. Moreover, both devices, although they are more expensive, are more interesting than OnePlus 6T.
No company can beat Apple’s press conferences
Apple is known for its entertaining press conferences, which always gather the attention of the whole world. OnePlus cannot match the American company, as no matter what they will present on stage, the coverage they will get is going to be limited.
The launch event of OnePlus 6T is set to start at 11:00 AM EST at Pier 36 in New York City, exactly one hour later than Apple’s event, which, surprisingly, will take place in the same city at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
