The arrival of OnePlus 6T is not surprising because the Chinese OEM always releases a phone from its "T" line a few months after the flagship model has been launched. We have not really started speculation or leaked in contrast to previous years, but now we hear that the smartphone will have its first official US transport partner in T-Mobile. This is an exclusive agreement, but the device will still be open unlocked, which means you can still use a SIM card from any other compatible network in the country.
This is the first time OnePlus has assembled with a carrier in United States. It indicates progress because an American company trusts another brand from China while there are issues with Huawei, ZTE and the US government.
OnePlus will uncover OnePlus 6T officially this coming October or November. We can expect a T-Mobile variant and an unlocked model. The unlocked OnePlus 6T will be the common global version that is usually introduced by the company.
OEM is aimed at Samsung, HTC and LG and the other major names by introducing premium phones at reasonable prices. Well, a phone that's priced over $ 500 is not exactly affordable, but it's still almost half the price of what Samsung sells.
OnePlus can not beat Samsung (yet), but it can take over LG and HTC in many ways. We do not know exactly how many devices OnePlus has sold since launch, but we know it's the fastest-selling OnePlus phone that has sold a million (1M) in 22 days.
Some rumors have recently come up and give us ideas about future OnePlus 6T including OPPO R17 leakage. So what's OPPO doing with OnePlus? If you have lived under a rock, the two are related. Both have the same owners, so we assume they have the same designers, manufacturing process and factory.
The OPPO R17 can be the predecessor of OnePlus 6T, so it's exciting to look at the specifications: 6.4-inch full HD +, 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 6, Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, Adreno 615 GPU , Snapdragon X12 LTE modem, 8GB RAM, 128GB of storage, 16 MP and 5 MP dual cameras, 25 MP self-shooted, and a fingerprint sensor under the front display.
OPPO R17 runs on ColorOS, but OnePlus 6T wants the latest OxygenOS. Of course, the two are based on Android. Definitely, this will also have the same notch and the same design. Nothing bigger will change in appearance, but there will be some shock in the specifications and features.
