OnePlus has been selling its smartphones in the United States for a few years now but it has never had a carrier partner. Customers could buy its devices online and use it with their carrier of choice. They couldn’t purchase it from a carrier like T-Mobile or AT&T. The company had said that it would work to ink partnerships with carriers in the United States. A new report states that the OnePlus 6T will launch on T-Mobile this October in what will be the company’s first U.S. carrier deal.

Citing people familiar with the launch plans, CNET reports that T-Mobile is going to be the exclusive U.S. carrier partner for the OnePlus 6T which it launches this October. There will be a specific version of the OnePlus 6T optimized for T-Mobile’s network.

This deal doesn’t mean that OnePlus won’t sell its standard global version which is unlocked and capable of working on AT&T or T-Mobile in addition to overseas networks. The OnePlus 6T price has tentatively been set at $550 but hasn’t been finalized as yet.

The report doesn’t mention anything about the changes that the OnePlus 6T will bring to the table. It’s going to be a slightly improved iteration of the OnePlus 6 that was launched earlier this year. OnePlus hasn’t commented on the matter as yet.
