Mobile To Carry OnePlus 6T Android Flagship This Fall


As per the report from CNET, OnePlus will launch OnePlus 6T in October, which is believed to be the same time when Google will launch the new Pixel 3 devices.

The darling smartphone startup will reportedly launch its next smartphone, tentatively dubbed the "OnePlus 6T", with T-Mobile as its exclusive US carrier partner in October, according to CNET.

The upcoming device now has a provisional $550 price tag attached to it, suggesting OnePlus is once again planning to raise the prices of its new handsets, with the OnePlus 6 already doing the same earlier this year when it was unveiled with an introductory price of $529. Finally, it's said that OnePlus is still working to get technical approval for the 6T on T-Mobile's network and that its T-Mo debut could be delayed if it doesn't get that approval.

We're guessing T-Mo will handle sales of this "specific" OnePlus 6T model itself, presumably both on and offline, although today's report does not explicitly confirm that detail.

For those not on T-Mobile, there'll still be an opportunity to snag a OnePlus smartphone. The smartphone will also be sold via T-Mobile stores. Contrast that to its most recent device, the OnePlus 6, which starts at $529.

After mushrooming from an "invites only" smartphone manufacturer to a premium OEM with high-end specifications at affordable pricing smartphones, OnePlus has truly come a long way since its launch in 2014. And why shouldn't it, the company makes flagship killer phones that can take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9, Apple iPhone X, etc, and sells it for half the price. There haven't been any solid leaks or rumors so far, but we do know that the internals will mostly remain the same. It is possible that we might see the smaller waterdrop notch on the OnePlus 6T, as seen on the Oppo R17 and F9. The model will also support 600mHz bands, otherwise known as band 71.
