OnePlus 6T October launch could spark first U.S. carrier partnership, with T

The OnePlus 6T will launch on T-Mobile for $550 this fall

The 6T is allegedly launching in October, and there will be a specific version "optimized for T-Mobile's network". It just so happens that Oppo launched the R17 recently, which is nearly certainly going to become the OnePlus 6T.

Buy OnePlus 6 Move over OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 6 has arrived. In keeping with the price trajectory of previous OnePlus releases, the OnePlus 6T is planned to retail for $550, an increase of about $20 over the previous model. CEO of OnePlus said that the company is working on introducing smartphones sold by United States carriers.

A model with more capable internals would presumably launch at the same time for a slightly higher charge.

People familiar with the launch plans say that T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier partner for the OnePlus 6T.

The report adds that OnePlus will continue to sell its global unlocked model in the U.S. that will support either AT&T or T-Mobile. But the price isn't finalized, according to CNET. With this tie-up, the less-than-well-known company will get a better chance to get its phone out to the customers who haven't heard of it before.

Part of the reason why you might never see a OnePlus phone on the street in the U.S. is because they've never been available at carrier stores. Earlier this year, the heads of the FBI, NSA and Central Intelligence Agency cautioned Americans away from buying ZTE or Huawei smartphones. Currently, the built-in modems on OnePlus phones aren't compatible with Verizon and Sprint networks.

Those agencies did not mention OnePlus by name, which means that the company could gain more ground in the US than its peers have. Still, if you've been hoping for carrier support for OnePlus before you pick one up, that wait may be coming to an end soon.

Fans covet the lower price tags and performance of OnePlus phones, which cost hundreds less than the competition from Apple and Samsung, and sometimes even exceed their performance. Meanwhile, there will likely also be an unlocked version of the device available through OnePlus' website.
