OnePlus just announced the OnePlus 6T, and yep, T-Mobile has the exclusive on it in the US. The phone will also work on Verizon.
The OnePlus 6T will feature a 6.41-inch Full Optic AMOLED display (19.5:9, “baby teardrop,” Gorilla Glass 6, 2340×1080, 402ppi), 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB storage, Snapdragon 845 processor, 3700mAh battery, and dual rear camera (20MP + 16MP). It’ll run Android 9 Pie out of the box with OnePlus’ Oxygen OS on top and come in both Mirror and Midnight Black colorways, just like the OnePlus 6. Full specs here.
Being sold at T-Mobile stores (over 5,600) is a huge move for OnePlus. They are not just an online-only, direct-to-consumer brand any longer. Now, they get to really compete with the big dogs in a carrier store with wide distribution outside of their own online shop.
As you can see below, Verizon is listed as a supported carrier as well. That might be even bigger news to many than the T-Mobile partnership.
The OnePlus 6T will start at $549 for the 6GB + 128GB model (Midnight Black). They’ll also have 8GB +128GB (Midnight and Mirror Black) and 8GB + 256GB (Midnight Black) models at $579 and $629, respectively. T-Mobile will only carry the 8GB + 128GB model in Midnight Black.
If you buy from T-Mobile, you’ll get to participate in a $300 off trade-in deal. You can trade any number of devices (see below) and get the deal. With no trade, you can sign-up for an equipment installment plan and pay $0 down followed by $24.17/mo for 24 months.
The OnePlus 6T goes on sale November 1 at 9AM Eastern (6AM Pacific).
