OnePlus has just officially confirmed that the OnePlus 8T is coming. The company did that via its OnePlus India Twitter handle. The company literally tweeted a picture that says “OnePlus 8T 5G Coming Soon”.
OnePlus confirmed the arrival of the OnePlus 8T, and published an ad as well
In addition to that, the tweet had a caption “We’re just getting started | OnePlus 8T | Coming Soon, Get notified”. The company also shared a link that leads to the OnePlus India website dedicated to this smartphone’s launch.

On that page, you can request email updates on the OnePlus 8T’s arrival. The company also says that if you do that, you’ll be eligible to win various awards. One of those awards is the device itself.
An ad starring Robert Downey Jr. is also embedded on that website. It has also been published on YouTube, on OnePlus India’s YouTube channel.
The ad is very short, it has a duration of 10 seconds, and it’s embedded below the article. The ad teases the speed of the OnePlus 8T. The tagline for the ad is “Life moves fast, you need a phone who is faster”.
At the very end of the ad, you’ll see it in writing, “OnePlus 8T. Coming Soon.”. It’s not odd that Robert Downey Jr. appeared in this ad, as he is OnePlus’ brand ambassador.
Now, we do wonder why did this information surface on OnePlus India Twitter and YouTube locations. Why didn’t OnePlus share all this via its global accounts?
The OnePlus 8T won’t be exclusive to India. Perhaps the company is planning some teasers and information via its official account for this week, but still, this is rather odd.
The device will launch globally, it won’t be exclusive to India
The OnePlus 8T will be a global smartphone. It will become available in Asia and Europe, and the US will almost certainly get it as well. As things stand now, we’re going to get only one OnePlus 8T handset this year.
A well-known tipster said that the OnePlus 8T Pro is not coming, only the regular model. Some leaked information did point the other way, as guides for the OnePlus 8T Pro did surface on the company’s website.
So, it remains to be seen what will happen. As the launch date comes closer, things will become clearer, that’s for sure. Speaking of which, the company still did not announce the official launch date for the device.
MySmartPrice did share that information, as it partnered up with Ishan Agarwal, a well-known tipster. They said that the device will become official on October 14. OnePlus will probably make it official soon. If you’d like to know more about the device, check out our preview.
