OnePlus 8T passes through BIS, could launch soon in India - Android

OnePlus 8T could launch in India soon as the phone has been spotted passing through the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards). The OnePlus 8T has also been subject to multiple leaks and speculations are rife whether or not we will get to see an OnePlus 8T Pro this year. 

The listing on the BIS website indicates that the model number of the two phones is KB2001 and as per previous reports the OnePlus 8 goes under the codename Kebab. The listing on BIS could mean that the company is going to launch the OnePlus 8T in India soon. OnePlus 7T was launched in October 2019 and if the company follows the tradition, we could see the 8T launch happening sometime in October. Though all of that is just speculation as we currently have no official word about the phone.

Some earlier reports indicate that OnePlus won’t be announcing the OnePlus 8T Pro this time around, however, as per some latest information coming from serial leakster Evan Blass who spotted five “guides” for yet unannounced phones, the OnePlus 8T Pro seems to exist in the company’s database. So it’s entirely likely that the company may announce the OnePlus 8T Pro after all. These “guides” were subsequently taken down by OnePlus.

OnePlus is reportedly also working on entry-level smartphones under the codename Clover and the phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor. The fifth unnamed device from the listing could be just that.
