There will be a OnePlus 6T again this year :
While the OnePlus 6 is about to be officially unveiled, Carl Pei announced that a OnePlus 6T is expected this year, and even the following year.
With the release of the OnePlus 3T, the Chinese manufacturer has started a new six-month spaced-out cycle on the market. First, its new version in the spring. Then, its improvement in autumn. OnePlus 3 / 3T, OnePlus 5 / 5T, OnePlus 6 … 6T? While his latest smartphone will be unveiled today, Carl Pei has returned to this cycle of release and already announced the color: there will be a OnePlus 6T.
The OnePlus 6T is already planned :
Why already talk about the next model? Interviewed by Wired magazine, the man explained OnePlus’ strategy on its exit cycle which is linked to its online sales-based business model: “At present, the vast majority of our consumers buy their phones online, and these consumers have a very different profile: they are very tech-savvy, they know what the latest technical specifications and all new brands are. They are also less patient. That’s why the automaker is getting two products a year: “So now, because our business model is based on online shoppers, it’s smarter for us to have two products a year. I think that will change, but it will not be so fast. ”
Respond to demand, constantly :
By this statement, Carl Pei is only explaining the strategy of OnePlus that seems to be … to meet the demand, at all times, the best available configuration at the best price. It is after all the mission that has been given to the company from all time. Also, the OnePlus 6 has the mission to meet the demand in May, when the OnePlus 6T will have the same mission at the end of the year. One way to recognize the permanent movement of the smartphone market, but not to respond to those feeling aggrieved to buy a smartphone at a high price to see it being supplanted 6 months later.
