Michelle Sawh told me she has had her OnePlus for 2 years, and the only reason she is upgrading to the 6T is for the improved camera. OnePlus has slimmed down the bezels around the screen, and the infamous display notch is now just a tiny water drop-shaped cutout for the front-facing camera.
After the formal launch of the OnePlus 6T, the smartphone is finally going on sale starting today.
The OnePlus 6T is available now from the OnePlus website and, here in the USA, from T-Mobile.
The OnePlus 6T is the first OnePlus device to penetrate the USA market through carriers and the T-Mobile is the first one to offer it. OnePlus 6T with 8GB RAM and storage options of 128GB and 256GB is priced at Rs 41,999 and Rs 45,999 respectively. There is no 3.5mm jack in the OnePlus 6T, while the 6 had it.
The unlocked 6T comes in both shiny and matte black glass versions. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expandable via microSD card.
You got that right it is. The eligible trade-in devices include the Google Pixel XL and newer, the iPhone 6 and newer, the LG G6 or V20 and newer, the Moto Z2 Force, the Nexus 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Note 5 and newer, and every single previous OnePlus phone. We are referring to the Unlock app (for network unlocking) and the T-Mobile account manager app.
Previous OnePlus phones were only available online or at a pop-up shop. Lastly, travelers will be impacted because the device only has one SIM slot rather than two.
The OnePlus 6T only works with Verizon's LTE network, meaning that it does support the older CDMA coverage. Still, at the end of the launch event, plenty of questions remained unanswered, even as sales opened via the T-Mobile store in Times Square. Although OnePlus promises bi-monthly updates for the 6T, the T-Mobile version won't necessarily get them at the same time. OnePlus has posted some of those details on their blog so you'll know what to expect from the carrier model of the device.
