However, Android Police reported that the phone would be "fully Verizonified." For better and worse, that means it'll come with the carrier's suite of apps and experiences preloaded onto the device.
If the report is accurate, it'll be interesting to see how OnePlus tries to reconcile the decision to allow Verizon to install apps on its phone. Pete Lau, the company's co-founder, has repeatedly said in interviews that OnePlus designs products with "burdenless" user experiences that don't force bloatware on its customers.
As usual, it's best to be skeptical until we get official confirmation. That said, pickup by Verizon is something OnePlus has obviously been working on for a while. Since the OnePlus 6T, the company's phones have included Band 13 support, allowing you to use them on Verizon's LTE network. And while OnePlus' T-Mobile partnership has helped it sell more phones, Verizon support would likely help the company immensely. In either case, we've reached out to OnePlus for comment, and we'll update this article when the company responds.
