According to Lau, people who want flagship-tier devices, or as he put it “Pro-level products”, should opt for the six-month-old OnePlus 8 Pro – the annual flagship of the company. The direction of the brand is to have only one top product per year rather than upgrading every six months.
However he said OnePlus fans have more to look forward to than just the vanilla 8T phone as there will be some surprises at the launch next month. Reports are the company will unveil new true wireless earphones, a smartwatch, and a new Nord for the US market.
