OnePlus May Launch the New Flagship in Early 2018
The “flagship killer” — OnePlus 5 launched this year by OnePlus is quite controversial and after its release, there has been few news about it. From the parameters, OnePlus 5 is not inferior to the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, iPhone 8, iPhone X, and Pixel 2 which was on market later. But recently, there have been reports that OnePlus canceled the launch of OnePlus 5T within the year. Instead, it will release OnePlus 6 in early 2018.
Last year, One Plus introduced OnePlus 3T equipped with a better processor. Google Pixel also used Snapdragon 821 SoC. While in 2016, many Android mobiles still use Snapdragon 820.
Unfortunately, Qualcomm does not intend to release Snapdragon 836 this year, which undoubtedly disturbed many manufacturers’ plan. One speculation is that the upcoming release of Google Pixel 2 on October 4 will still use the Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Foreign media GSM Arena quoted a controversial report from Android Marvel, saying that One Plus 6 would be launched in early 2018. However, there is no other sources confirming this statement.
The only thing that can be determined is that OnePlus 5T has lost the opportunity to be available in 2017, especially when the iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 are coming.
