OnePlus 6T October launch could spark first United States carrier partnership, with T

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. The 6T carried by T-Mobile will apparently be a separate model from the device's global release, tweaked and optimized to better run on T-Mobile's network.

You may finally be able to buy a OnePlus phone through a carrier in the U.S. No, not the OnePlus 6 - but rather, the upcoming, unannounced OnePlus 6T. But a "specific" version of the OnePlus 6T is reportedly in the works, with special T-Mobile optimizations, including support for the "Un-carrier's" super-advanced 600 MHz Extended Range LTE technology. The OnePlus 6 - see our full review - is an outstanding smartphone that starts at just $529.

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.

Considering their cold war, it's quite clear that Shahrukh won't mark his presence at PeeCee's engagement party. Priyanka and Nick , who reportedly dated for two months, were first spotted together at the 2017 Met Gala.

The OnePlus 6 is still pretty fresh in our minds, but we have already started with the first round of reports on its successor, the OnePlus 6T. Now we know that those discussions were with T-Mobile and - so far, anyway - the discussions were successful.

Nothing is official yet, and the original report indicates that OnePlus is still in the middle of the "technical approval" process with T-Mobile, so nothing is set in stone just yet. Regardless of that, being offered by one of the "big four" in the United States should build more awareness for OnePlus among the mainstream public. Though this would be an exclusive partnership, OnePlus is still expected to sell a standard version not tied to T-Mobile.

We reached out to OnePlus regarding the news, and the company had no statement to offer at this time.
