OnePlus 6T will launch today at an event in New York. The event will begin with a keynote address at around 10pm IST. The OnePlus 6T launch event will have a livestream, that will be available from the OnePlus website, as well as the OnePlus YouTube channel. OnePlus will be live updating the event through its social media handles, including Facebook and Twitter.
Earlier, OnePlus rescheduled the launch event of OnePlus 6T to October 29, a day ahead of its planned schedule. The company says the move was necessary as sticking to the original date would've meant the OnePlus 6T launch would be “overshadowed by Apple”, which is also hosting an event in New York on the same day. Apple is expected to introduce new iPad and Mac models.
