Are you looking forward to the next flagship smartphone from OnePlus? If you are, you might be interested to learn that the company has confirmed that the upcoming smartphone will be officially launching on the 14th of October. This is according to a recent teaser video that the company posted on its YouTube page.

What’s interesting about this launch date, and we can only assume was done on purpose, is that this could coincide with Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 launch in which OnePlus is hoping that the announcement could steal some of Apple’s thunder. Apple has yet to officially announce a date for the iPhone 12 launch event.

However, tipster Jon Prosser had previously suggested that the iPhone 12 could be announced in the week starting from October 12, which means that Apple could announce the iPhone 12 on the 13th of October, a Tuesday. Apple seems to like announcing products on Tuesday like they did back with the iPhone 11 in 2019, and its “Time Flies” event last Tuesday where the new Apple Watch Series 6 and new iPads were announced.

It stands to reason that this year’s iPhone 12 could also be announced on a Tuesday, and as such, the OnePlus 8T’s event on Wednesday could end up overshadowing Apple’s announcement. In any case, we’ll have to wait and see when Apple does announce its new iPhones, but regardless, OnePlus fans and Android users will have the 14th of October to look forward to.
