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

Going all the way back to the OnePlus One in 2014, the company has always used the latest and greatest Snapdragon chip - the same chip powering phones that cost twice as much.

According to the report, T-Mobile would be the exclusive launch carrier for OnePlus in the U.S., selling the phone through its retail stores and website.

Earlier today The Sun reported that the 39-year-old pulled out of CBB's live launch last night following a "furious bust up with producers".

$550 is what the OnePlus 6T should start at, but pricing hasn't been finalized yet so that could still change. According to CNET, T-Mobile will market the OnePlus 6T in its retail stores and will even work further to optimize for use on its network. For reference, the OnePlus 5T was revealed in mid-November 2017. Shortly after the 5T's launch, both Lau and Pei said they'd begin negotiating with USA networks in earnest in 2018, though they weren't necessarily promising a partnership. Teasing U.S. carrier availability is risky business for most phone makers, but especially those hailing from China.

The OnePlus 6, like other OnePlus devices before it, is compatible with both T-Mobile and AT&T, but isn't sold in the stores of either. This marks the first time that OnePlus will have a USA carrier partner for a device launch. OnePlus' "T" revisions typically offer slight tweaks to the main generational upgrades released earlier in the year, so perhaps we'll see minor tweaks to the OnePlus 6's design or, more specifically, its controversial notch. T-Mobile will reportedly be the exclusive US carrier partner for the new OnePlus phone, and it's expected that there will be a special version of the phone that's "optimized" for the T-Mobile network, including support for T-Mo's 600MHz LTE coverage.
