With the launch of OnePlus 6T at an event here, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus late Monday marked its entry into the US after partnering with mobile services operator T-Mobile.
“The OnePlus 6T and T-Mobile’s LTE network were made for each other. Customers have been asking us to help bring OnePlus to the US. We listened and delivered,” John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile, said in a statement.
“We found a kindred spirit in OnePlus — a company who is just as focused and customer experience obsessed as the Un-carrier.”
The five-year-old Chinese smartphone player’s new device is in line with the recent leaks and features a very small waterdrop style notch, high-end specifications and an affordable price when compared against the 2018 flagship competition.

“The OnePlus 6T is coming exclusively to the Un-carrier, making T-Mobile the first and only wireless provider in the United States to offer a OnePlus device ever! And to celebrate, T-Mobile customers can get their hands on this super hot superphone for more than half off,” the company said.
Un-carrier customers can snap one up earlier than anyone else exclusively at the T-Mobile Times Square store starting Tuesday.
Starting November 1, the OnePlus 6T goes on sale nationwide in T-Mobile stores and on T-Mobile.com.
The OnePlus 6T packs 128GB of internal storage and 8GB RAM and the much talked about fingerprint under display functionality.
There’s a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, a 16MP + 20MP dual rear camera and 16MP front-facing camera.
The company has included a fast-charging 3700mAh battery and a 6.41-inch 2K OLED screen.
The Shenzhen-based smartphone company was set to launch the handset at an event in India on Tuesday.
The OnePlus 6T’s launch event in India is scheduled for October 30, 2018, which was unaffected by Apple’s event in New York on the same date.
