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. T-Mobile will reportedly be the exclusive USA 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. The OnePlus 6T will cost around $550 and be available in October. This marks the first time that OnePlus will have a USA carrier partner for a device launch.
It's definitely worth pointing out that the OnePlus 6 is already compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T's GSM networks. The company has become well-known among Android enthusiasts by selling high-end unlocked phones at more aggressive prices than other flagships, but having the OnePlus 6T on the shelves of a US carrier could expose OnePlus to a whole new audience. This is really just OnePlus getting into a United States carrier store more than anything, so if you are a OnePlus fan who likes buying their phones directly, that shouldn't change at all. 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.
