OnePlus, on 8 October announced the date of the presentation of the new flagship device OnePlus 6T. The smartphone was supposed to represent October 30 at 17 o’clock Moscow time in new York. Some time later, Apple announced a presentation on the same day, but at 18 hours GMT. And such an outcome is not satisfied with OnePlus, as everyone knew that the media will write mainly about Apple. I’m sure many journalists have already booked hotel rooms and airline tickets, so the decision to move was carefully considered by company management, which primarily appealed to loyal fans with the aim to solve the problem.
Fans of the decision to postpone was supported. OnePlus openly and unashamedly declares that Apple simply outshined her on 30 October as all attention will be concentrated on the company’s products from Cupertino.
We postponed the event a day early for all of us if we were able to evaluate new technologies together. We know that an apology is not enough for those affected by this decision. So we will do everything in our power to make things right. You should start with those who have a ticket to the event, but who will not be able to visit it. They will be able to keep the ticket money.
Moreover, OnePlus promises to reimburse all expenses for accommodation and flights to the journalists who suffered from this decision.
As for Apple, it had been tactful, because the OnePlus smartphones enjoy a great popularity in the United States. This move allowed Apple to hit his rival. And she did it. It is foolish to assume that Apple did not pursue this goal and does not consider the OnePlus as its competitor.
OnePlus 6T, according to rumors, will be equipped with Snapdragon processor 845, a 6.4-inch display, 20-MP camera, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory, battery 3700 mAh.
Earlier this month it became known that the price of 6T may increase significantly because of the scanner under the display so the usual increase 30-50 dollars is not worth waiting. Most likely, the smartphone will be priced at $ 599.
