OnePlus is all set to unwrap its second flagship smartphone for the year – the OnePlus 6T, and while it is already certain the device will launch in India as Amazon exclusive, news coming out from China suggest that the firm has inked another exclusivity deal with one of Amazon’s subsidiary – SouQ.
Reports say Oneplus and SouQ have inked a deal that will see the later offering the device exclusively in the middl-east – UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait. OnePlus a few days ago rescheduled the OnePlus 6T launch event from October 30th to October 29th to avoid a clash with Apple’s iPad event scheduled for the same date. However, the firm would be holding a separate launch event in India on 30th.
