The OnePlus 6T is right around the corner. And, we know that the official date for the release of the smartphone was scheduled on October 30. But, now Apple has also announced an event on the same date, in the same city.

Well, because of that OnePlus is now unveiling its new OnePlus 6T on October 29, still in NYC. Pete Lau, the company’s CEO, shared a post on OnePlus forums going into the decision process, and the CEO has to say that- “we didn’t want Apple to steal our thunder”.

Now, this may be an opportunity for OnePlus as all the tech enthusiasts from the Big names on the internet may join the OnePlus event after they attend the Apple event.”In any pursuit, you can only play the cards you are dealt. We were dealt a pretty bad hand. Our challenge was to find a way to make the most of a bad situation. For months on end, hundreds of people have poured their hearts and souls into creating our best product to date. Our goal is to make sure it gets the time and attention it deserves”, Lau says.

Lastly, Pete promised to refund back the tickets to all those who will no more be able to attend the event on this new date. Also, the cost for all the other expenses including the switch flights or change hotel reservations will be refunded. The OnePlus executives will soon reach you out for all that information.
