OnePlus 6T might come in Thunder Purple (which probably means no red)

One would thus expect the OnePlus 6T to have a red version as well. However, when news broke that OnePlus would drop the headphone jack from the device, many Android fans outright rejected the phone as ... In the USA, a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage version sets you back $549.

"A person might be coming into the store looking for a great Android phone at a great price and now we have another great option to recommend to them", explained Desmond "Des" Smith, a creative director at T-Mobile who handles a lot of the company's social media and YouTube device unboxings.

The new OnePlus 6T comes with an attractive pricetag, the model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage can be yours for $579 or double the storage to 256GB for $629. The unlocked model will work on T-Mobile just the same. The carrier phone also isn't eligible for the OnePlus beta program.

Here are the 6 new features on the One Plus 6T you should know about

OnePlus showed off its latest OnePlus 6T at an event in New Delhi on October 30 and after the company revealed the prices of the smartphone, Xiaomi played its cards cleverly against the company with an ad campaign referred to as "Do the ma+h". It also supports Verizon's LTE network for the first time. In all likelihood it'll nearly certainly be behind that of the Global (unlocked) version of the phone every time OnePlus has an update. Lastly, travelers will be impacted because the device only has one SIM slot rather than two. If you were hoping to root or ROM your T-Mobile-bought OnePlus 6T, you can, in fact, unlock the bootloader, you'll just need to pay the phone off early.

And to that end, the OnePlus 6T delivers a set of specifications that matches and often exceeds what's available in much more expensive devices like the Samsung Galaxy S9+ or the Google Pixel 3 XL.

OnePlus 6 has got a new OxygenOS 9.0.2 update with the new navigation gestures. Those updates have to be certified by T-Mobile, so that's going to cause a delay, however small. T-Mobile offers the max trade-in value for all OnePlus phones, even the OnePlus One from 2014. The phone can also be paid off early even if you elect to use the payment plan for the $300-off promo, and bill credits will continue to be received.
