The best OnePlus 6T pre-order deals

Indeed, there are features that the OnePlus 6T doesn't have that its competitors do, which could help explain its lower price tag.

OnePlus has launched its flagship device officially in the United States as well as in India recently and the device is available to order in Midnight Black and Mirror Black color options. It starts at $549 for versions with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, but there are versions with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for just $629 as well.

USA buyers can now jump in with T-Mobile, the first carrier in the States to include OnePlus within its 24.17-per-month plan for two years. The price was listed as 579 euros (~$660), which would suggest the Thunder Purple variant would come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That's a tantalizing offer, though before you take the plunge, there are some things you should know about the model T-Mobile is selling.

Along with several improvements, OnePlus is rolling out Android security November patch with various security fixes. The rear-facing fingerprint sensor is completely gone - OnePlus is the first company to launch a phone in the U.S. with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Once the device is unlocked, it'll be able to be used with other networks like AT&T and Verizon.

The unlocked phone is only available from OnePlus' website, but this is clearly the "better" version of the phone. I'm comparing the OnePlus 6T specifically to smartphones with larger displays rather than those with standard sub-6-inch displays. This means a set of features are not yet available on the T-Mobile variant. Not only are bootloaders often locked, but the bloat and slower updates make an impact on usability for us enthusiasts. T-Mobile offers the max trade-in value for all OnePlus phones, even the OnePlus One from 2014.

Finally, users who buy the OnePlus 6T through T-Mobile will not be eligible for the beta program, in case that is something you are interested in participating in.

It is a staged rollout, we suggest you guys wait for some days or hours for the OnePlus 6 Oxygen OS 9.0.2 update. You can get the phone on a monthly payment plan $24.17 for 24 months, and you can get up to $300 off when you trade in your old phone.
