We’re all but certain that the OnePlus 6T will be launched in October, thanks to multiple leaks and rumors.

The invitation doesn’t give away much else, including details of the city of the launch. However, it does explicitly mention October 17 being the launch date, and looks realistic enough. It also mentions the slogan for the OnePlus 6T – ‘Unlock The Speed’ – which we believe is a reference to the in-display fingerprint sensor that will be introduced on the OnePlus range with the device, AndroidHeadlines reports. Additionally, as has always been the case, OnePlus will continue to focus on performance as a USP on its latest device. Also Read - OnePlus 8T launch event may be set for October 14

So while this invite is for the India-specific launch event, there could be other events also taking place. Furthermore, some reports have suggested that a single global keynote will reveal the device a day prior, on October 16, as was done during the OnePlus 6 launch in May this year. However, there are no details on this yet.
