OnePlus 6T is launched in October as & # 39; Exclusive for T-Mobile & # 39; in the U.S.
THE INCOMING OnePlus 6T is said to be launched in October of this year as the company's first smartphone offered via an American network.
That's what he says CNET, citing people who are familiar with the launch plans, reports that the next flagship from the T & # 39; ed by the Chinese company will be offered via the T-Mobile network in the United States.
T-Mobile would be the exclusive launcher for OnePlus in the US, selling the phone through the stores and website, CNET reports, while OnePlus still sells an unlocked version of the 6T through its own site.
OnePlus reportedly signed a preliminary agreement with the US carrier, which will offer the company a "specific version of the OnePlus 6T optimized for the T-Mobile network", including support for the operator's Extended Range LTE technology.
The only hitch would be the required "technical approval" for use on the network, according to CNETsources that can cause delays in starting the provider.
Still, if the rumors are true, this will be a major deal for OnePlus, which still has to make a name for itself in the US due to a lack of carrier backing. A partnership with T-Mobile would ensure better visibility of its product than the direct sales already offered through its own sales channels.
The report does not tell us much about the OnePlus 6T, but it does note that the handset costs the same as its OnePlus 6 predecessor. This means that you can probably buy a 64 GB model for £ 419, with 128 GB and 256 GB variants reaching 519 and £ 569, respectively.
While CNET has no word about the specs or functions of the handset, previous rumors suggest that the OnePlus 6T will be the first smartphone with the next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor from Qualcomm, while others claimed that it could have an all-display design, with a pop-up selfie camera like the Vivo Nex. μ
