After its release, OnePlus 6 has truly made its mark in the smartphone arena. The smartphone remains a healthy competitor to many of the other flagship devices like iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy series. But as the popularity of OnePlus 6 is settling in, all eyes are set on the company’s next flagship smartphone, OnePlus 6T, which is expected to be unveiled in a couple of months.

OnePlus 6T will definitely bring some new features to the device like wireless charging, IP certified rating for waterproofing, QHD display and more. However, apart from all this, there is a surprise awaiting the release of OnePlus 6, and that is the backing of the T-Mobile, a major US network carrier.

As the new report from the people familiar with the launch suggests, T-Mobile will be the exclusive partner for the OnePlus for the US market. And to give a boost to this unprecedented agreement, the smartphone manufacturer is expected to roll out an exclusive model that will be specific to the T-Mobile's network. One such change could be seen in the T-Mobile's 600 megahertz band of spectrum that promises to provide faster coverage.

Apart from this, OnePlus will be selling its new flagship device in the unlocked manner, which will let the users run their new devices on AT&T, T-Mobile, or any other overseas network. As far as the price is concerned, the new smartphone is speculated to come with a price tag of around $550 that will put it in a competitive price bracket. Though the company hasn't confirmed the price yet.

As of now, OnePlus isn’t able to acquire much of popularity in the US, but with a place in the T-Mobile stores, the smartphone will undoubtedly garner exceptional sales. Also, with the dominance of the iPhone in the US market, OnePlus desperately needed this kind of backing.

It is seen in the past that smartphone makers often partnered with top network carriers to break into the US market, but with the mid-range models. However, OnePlus 6T is the flagship device of the company and will be interesting to see, how it performs.

The deal to attach the OnePlus 6T with a network carrier began earlier this year and the Pete Lau, OnePlus CEO, expressed his desire in an interview with CNET in January. "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment," Lau said through co-founder Carl Pei, who served as interpreter.
