It’s been a busy year or two for OnePlus, with co-founder Carl Pei leaving the company and a merger with Oppo to manage. Add to that a global pandemic and a shortage of chips and it’s understandable that the traditional release schedule for OnePlus devices has been out of step with what we normally expected.

More importantly, there’s no OnePlus 9T: we usually see a T-series refresh later in the year, but OnePlus canceled the phone and didn’t give a definitive reason – we just did. list a few, but no one knows for sure why the phone never arrived.

With the imminent launch of the OnePlus 9RT, the successor to the OnePlus 9R, we know that OnePlus has at least committed to more phones for the Indian and Chinese markets. It looks like the rest of us will have to wait for the OnePlus 10.

We’re hoping OnePlus can get back on track with a steady, predictable 2022 release schedule, as it’s one of the best for launching well-specified phones at affordable prices – and we haven’t even mentioned the value – OnePlus Nord series for the money.
