However, if the response to OnePlus on T-Mobile is unignorable, CDMA carriers will have to at least consider working with the phone startup to get their devices certified for their networks just to remain competitive. According to a report out of CNET this morning, T-Mobile will get to sell the new OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 6T.

According to the report, T-Mobile would be the exclusive launch carrier for OnePlus in the United States, selling the phone through its retail stores and website. The expected price of the successor to the OnePlus 6 would probably be in the vicinity of $550 (₹38,000) for the base model.

In the US, OnePlus will sell the 6T through T-Mobile along with the unlocked variant it usually sells. For US consumers, the bigger story is that this could finally mark the beginning of an official carrier partnership.

The Uncarrier will serve as the exclusive partner for the OnePlus flagship when it launches this October, people familiar with the matter told CNET.

OnePlus will reportedly optimize its next smartphone for T-Mobile's 600 MHz Extended Range LTE spectrum, which promises to offer more reliable and faster data coverage. OnePlus is likely planning an October launch of the 6T, which is pretty quick even by OnePlus' standards.

Not a lot is known about the specifications and features of the OnePlus 6T. And as for the device itself, the rumor mill has been pretty hush on the 6T thus far, though we were already quite certain it was arriving ahead of the holiday season anyway. For the unaware, Oppo is the parent company of OnePlus. All three companies sometimes use each others designs, and OnePlus has been known to use Oppo's designs for a while now. The model will also support 600mHz bands, otherwise known as band 71. This could possibly stop the launch, but since OnePlus is a small firm it might fly under the radar.
