OnePlus 6T October launch could spark first U.S. carrier partnership, with T

OnePlus is not yet a household name like LG or Samsung, but it could be on its way there.

When OnePlus told us earlier this year that they were ready to approach carriers, and most recently that they would do so in a bloatware-free way, they weren't joking.

CNET's report says that OnePlus will have a version of the OnePlus 6T "optimized" for T-Mobile's network, which likely means that it'll work on the new 600MHz frequency that T-Mobile has been rolling out nationwide.

Ever since the OnePlus One from 2014, OnePlus phones have been the go-to Android handsets for people that want a flagship experience without the flagship price. The OnePlus 6 - see our full review - is an outstanding smartphone that starts at just $529. This could end up being a prominent means to success in the United States market. Back then, the company was so small it used an invite system to sell phones (and drum up some hype at the same time).

Not only will the usual global version launch, but T-Mobile will sell its own version of the device, a first for the company. It just so happens that Oppo launched the R17 recently, which is nearly certainly going to become the OnePlus 6T. 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. This phone further shrinks the already slim display notch on the OnePlus 6 and includes an in-display fingerprint reader.

Out of all the carriers, T-Mobile certainly makes the most sense. Barely more than half the cost of a Galaxy Note 9.
