To remember, the OnePlus 6T is going to likely be launched at an event in New York City at 11am EDT on October 29. The event was advanced out of its earlier October 30 date to avoid a clash with Apple’s October event on precisely the exact same date.
Interestingly, Souq.com in the UAE is owned by Amazon, which is OnePlus’ exclusive online partner in the Indian market as well. OnePlus has also tied up with the e-commerce giant in other global markets such as Germany and France.
