The company explained the lack of a OnePlus 11T as a simple way of “streamlining the flagship portfolio”, the Android Authority report added. It is unclear if this means there won’t be any other flagship-level phones launched from OnePlus throughout 2023 after the OnePlus 11 or if the company has something other than a “T” model in mind for the year’s second half.
