Apparently, OnePlus has signed an exclusive deal with US carrier T-Mobile, which means OnePlus 6T will the first smartphone from the Chinese company to be sold by a U.S. based network carrier. Also, the company will sell its standard unlocked global version that can run on AT&T as well as networks overseas.
Currently, OnePlus is going through the process of getting “technical approval” for use on the network from the carrier. This could potentially delay the launch in the US and maybe around the world.
