And, the latest one to name is reportedly OnePlus which allegedly has canceled its plan of launching the OnePlus 8 at a special event.
A Weibo user and reliable source familiar with the plans of OnePlus have reported that OnePlus is canceling the OnePlus 8 physical event and it will rather arrange an online-only event. OnePlus, generally launches its first phone of the new year sometime in spring, with a launch event somewhere in the world.
