OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro isn’t a new thing any longer and the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are both set to be released next year and even have been leaked by some impatient leakers as usual. The OnePlus 8 duo are both expected to be released come the Q2 of the year 2020 meanwhile the CEO of the company Pete Lau during an interview with Times of India, made it known that“We plan to stick with our current strategy of introducing two products simultaneously. While one device will cater to the premium segment, the other will be an affordable version of the first.”
This was followed amid speculations the company might be adding up more variants to it’s existing product line just like Smsung, Huawei and Xiaomi that have lots of different devices.
OnePlus dominates the India mobile market with about 42% market base making it the leader right above bigger brands like Samsung and Apple.
The figures go on to prove OnePlus’ brilliant strategy, and how well they have positioned their smartphones as ‘flagship killers.” OnePlus released the 7 and the 7 Pro in the second quarter of 2019, and followed it up by launching the 7T and the 7T Pro in the fourth quarter. Previously OnePlus launched one smartphone in the first half of the year and a T variant in the second half.
When Lau was questioned about the shift in strategy, he said, “We went with the dual phone strategy since we want to offer the best of both worlds to our patrons. The OnePlus 7 Pro, for example, offers the most updated technology at the moment. But, in a price-sensitive market like India, the Pro is out of bounds for most people. This is where the OnePlus 7 comes in. It offers the best of both worlds.”
