I would be extremely unlikely, but what if they retracted on the right side? It sure looks like a sudden event, so at this point it could be this, a thrust reverser deployment or a stall due to a high AoA or low thrust. Again, just my two cents.
What a horrible last few seconds.
Some witnesses described a climb to about 2-300 feet and flight time of about 10 seconds. Roll left and then sharp right turn.....Could be flaps, and yes they could retract on one side (I think) if hyd pressure was lost on that side, but defer to 732 drivers. Maybe a simple V1 cut who knows. But they train for that and should be able to climb out?....That video did seem to show pretty asymmetric thrust however. It's hard to explain. An in-flight TR deploy would require a LOT to go wrong. That's unlikely but anything is possible.
Honestly with what we saw in the video I doubt there is a scenario that they haven't considered yet.
