In the US, the OnePlus 6T sells (unlocked) from $549, a slight increase from the OnePlus 6. OnePlus hasn’t come out to officially confirm this just yet, but several leaks from media coverage allude to a $549 starting price point.
The 8GB/128GB costs $579, and 8GB/256GB costs $629. The above price of $549 is for the 6GB/128GB variant.
And, for the first time ever, the OnePlus 6T will sell via a US Carrier (T-Mobile) starting November 5th (both online & in stores). The OnePlus 6T will also work with Verizon.
T-Mobile also plans to offer a half-off deal with trade in on select devices (including all OnePlus devices previous released) and financing.
