Just last week, OnePlus announced the release of the highly anticipated OnePlus 6T on Tuesday, October 30, just over five months after the launch of the OnePlus 6. Apple chose OnePlus as its October 30th date was that it wanted to host its next event, where we expect the next iPad Pro to be revealed. Concerned about being overshadowed, OnePlus decided to postpone his event until October 29th.
People Lau, CEO of OnePlus, told the community forums on Friday to explain that he and his team had actually contacted press representatives to ask them how the two events might overlap. They were told that sticking to their original timeline was not a prudent decision.
"We move the event one day earlier so we can all experience the latest technology together," Lau said.
OnePlus knows that will affect hundreds of people who have booked flights and bought tickets for the event, but if you can not make it because of the change, you can request a full refund. On the other hand, if you can still do the event but need to change your plans, OnePlus will pay "all the expenses you incur by changing your plans." That means flight changes or an extra night in a hotel: OnePlus will pay for it.
"We hope you will understand our decision," said Lau. "If you're ready to help us speak out and make it our biggest event yet, we'd be incredibly grateful if you could share the news with other OnePlus followers, and as we continue to grow, we'll become them We can not wait to unveil the OnePlus 6T It's going to be a big week in New York But we're ready to unlock the pace ̵
