OnePlus plans to launch its flagship device for this year, OnePlus 10T 5G globally on August 3. There were supposed to be two launch events, one in China and one in New York.
However, in the wake of the ever-increasing tension between China and Taiwan after the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s visit to TaiwanOnePlus has announced that it will cancel the OnePlus 10T Chinese launch event.
Apart from OnePlus, Motorola was also supposed to launch its next generation foldable smartphone Moto Razr in China on August 2. Both companies have had to cancel their launch events.
While the Moto Razr 2022 launch was supposed to be specific to China, the OnePlus launch event was global. For this reason, OnePlus will be holding the launch event in New York, and will be live-streaming the event on their social media handles, and their YouTube channel.
Geopolitical tensions in China are said to be the reason behind OnePlus and Motorola canceling their launch events. Tensions in China are high due to the visit of US President Nancy Pelosi, who visited Taiwan on August 2.
Pelosi, who has been an outspoken critic of China, visited Taiwan on August 2. It seems that China is not satisfied with Pelosi’s visit. A report in The Indian Express also said that China has issued notices to US President Joe Biden to “not play with fire.”
The developments in China are not said to affect the global launch of the aforementioned smartphones. While the new Moto Razr was only going to launch in China, the OnePlus Ace Pro or OnePlus 10T 5G will launch in other regions including India today. The smartphone is scheduled to launch at 7:30 PM EST today during an offline event taking place in New York.
