UPDATE: The Amazon app is sideloaded into the OnePlus 8T phone. In a statement shared with Android Authority, here is what OnePlus has to say:
As part of our long-standing partnership with Amazon, the Amazon Shopping App has been pre-loaded on OnePlus devices since the launch of the OnePlus 3 in India. For the OnePlus 8T 5G, we were unable to install the stable Android 11 version of the application at the time of the launch. Due to this reason we had to update the Amazon application in the latest OTA update for devices in India only. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
