OnePlus 8T 5G launch will also witness a surprise announcement for a special edition of Nord. The website also mentions, "Ultra stops at nothing" and then says "OnePlus launch event." While rumours have dismissed the possibility of OnePlus 8T Pro variant, there could be an Ultra version in the offing.

"OnePlus is always looking for opportunities to bring the latest technology to our tech-savvy users as soon as we feel it meets our high standards. With the upcoming OnePlus 8T, we are once again raising the bar for ourselves in terms of the overall user experience, thanks to some new features that we are excited to introduce for the first time in a OnePlus device. I am confident that the OnePlus 8T will once again exceed expectations and deliver an unparalleled flagship experience," Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus, said in a statement.

As for rumours, OnePlus 8T is said to have a 6.55-inch Full HD+ display with 120Hz display, 32MP cutout camera, Snapdragon 856 chipset, up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. OnePlus 8T could borrow the camera setup as is in a rectangular module. A 4,500mAh battery is expected with 65W Warp Charge support.

If OnePlus is to replace the "Pro" variant with "Ultra", we can expect something exciting. This will be a first for OnePlus. Also, OnePlus could surprise us with OnePlus Watch, which is likely to be identical to the OPPO Watch.
