Already last year, the manufacturer OnePlus broke with its habit of launching slight evolutions of its benchmark smartphones in the second half of the year. Faced with the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, he had only aligned one OnePlus 8T , believing that mobile innovations no longer justified the existence of a OnePlus 8T Pro.
The firm has since launched the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro and, quite quickly behind, the rumor of the absence of a OnePlus 9T range has emerged. It is confirmed today with an official statement announcing that there will be neither OnePlus 9T nor OnePlus 9T Pro this year.
The company should only offer an evolution of the OnePlus 9R, the version specific to the Indian market, with a OnePlus 9RT model that we will not see in Europe.

After putting focus on the Nord range, with the launches of the OnePlus Nord CE and OnePlus Nord 2, the manufacturer has endeavored to enrich its partnership with the specialist in Hasselblad photography by announcing a XPan mode taking up the experience of the eponymous camera with its specific panorama format and offered on the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro on the occasion of a firmware update.
A unified overlay between OnePlus and Oppo but still personalized
The announcement The discontinuation of the OnePlus 9T series comes as OnePlu s specifies the contours of its merger with Oppo which will lead to the merger of the OxygenOS and ColorOS interfaces to give a unified system taking advantage of the advantages of the two overlays.
The underlying code will be the same but the two brands will be able to customize their interface. OnePlus indicates that it wants to maintain the philosophy of not integrating advertising into its overlay and will continue to allow the bootloader to be unlocked.
The new unified overlay will appear as soon as
with the next generation of reference smartphones (Oneplus 10, unless there is a change in nomenclature on this occasion ).
Building on its partnership with Hasselblad, OnePlus will continue to offer innovations in this area which remains a key element in choosing a premium smartphone.
