Yes, the rumor was true: OnePlus is making its phones available through a US carrier for the first time. T-Mobile will sell the OnePlus 6T through both its retail stores and online as of November 1st as part of an exclusive deal. It'll normally sell for $580 up front in an 8GB/128GB configuration ($0 down and $24.17 per month for two years), but it'll be available for $300 ($0 down and $11.67 per month) for a "limited time" if you trade in qualifying hardware. And if you're particularly eager, you can score the 6T at the T-Mobile store in New York City's Times Square on October 29th at 5PM Eastern.

It's a landmark arrangement for OnePlus. Carrier deals are frequently a must-have for strong phone sales in the US, and this promises to expose millions of Americans to the OnePlus badge for the first time -- it's not just for in-the-know enthusiasts anymore. This is also a coup against OnePlus' fellow Chinese rivals. Where Huawei and ZTE have quickly become personas non grata in the American market due to allegations of Chinese surveillance, BBK-owned OnePlus is making inroads. The brand just doesn't have that stigma attached to it -- and it may succeed where a giant like Huawei was shut out.
