[SOUND] OnePlus fans can rejoice, T-Mobile will be the first US carrier to officially sell the OnePlus 6T when it comes out in October.
It was first reported by CNET.
By yours truly.
But this is a huge deal for OnePlus, they've made a lot of progress selling phones online.
They're kind of building up a [UNKNOWN] cult following.
But this really gives them a chance to push themselves into mainstream awareness.
They had a major carrier partner in the past, or is this really one of the first ones?
It had carrier partners around the world, not in the US though.
So, this is the very first US carrier partnership.
Okay, and how significant is this phone?
Is this a like big flagship?
Of the year.
This is the one to buy if you're a OnePlus fan.
OnePlus tends to sell two flagship phones a year.
One at the beginning and one at the end.
This is for the second flagship.
They had the 6 earlier this year.
This is the 6T.
That's sort of the name convention that they use.
And yeah, I mean, that's their flagship phone.
The 6 was very well reviewed.
So, I imagine the 6T will Will, similarly have a lot of the bells and whistles that people are looking for.
Nice, so what does this mean for T-Mobile?
Is this a good thing for them?
So I've seen carrier, kind of exclusivity partnerships in the past.
For instance Sprint did one with Essential.
I don't know that it was really that successful for either one of those companies.
Do you think that this would be more impressive or significant for the likes of team mobile.
Yeah i would state this definitely as more of a shot of succeeding the [UNKNOWN] came out of nowhere there was no real history or crap record there spread obviously the fourth [UNKNOWN] has been struggling so that was a poor match i would say one plus has to fair [UNKNOWN] falling already they.
Andrew enthusiasts or know the name, even if it's not in stores.
T mobile's demographics run pretty well with one plus his fan base.
And really this is a phone that is optimized for t mobile's network.
That's the important thing because you could use one plus phones for TMobile previously, but you couldn't get access to their fastest networks.
That's a spectrum and so T-Mobile's in the middle of upgrading their network now with new bandwidth, new spectrum that's supposed to be better and faster coverage.
This new OnePlus 6T will presumably be able to tap into it.
And And I'm guessing, if you are a big one plus fan, but not a T-Mobile customer, you can still buy this online, right?
So buy the global unlock phone.
It only works on AT&T.
If it doesn't, if you don't want-
It's one of those.
[INAUDIBLE] One of those phones.
