The OnePlus 6T Launches Today on T-Mobile or Unlocked

Xiaomi-owned Pocophone has kicked off an advertising blitz on Twitter through its POCO India account, aimed squarely at rival company OnePlus and the brand new OnePlus 6T.

The OnePlus 6T is available now from the OnePlus website and, here in the US, from T-Mobile.

Under the glass hood sits Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor and an Adreno 630 GPU powered by a sizeable 3,700mAh battery. OnePlus has also launched Star Wars Edition for the OnePlus 5T and Avengers Edition for the OnePlus 6T.

Newly-launched OnePlus 6T with in-display fingerprint sensor will officially go on sale in India on Friday. However, many will lament the loss of the headphone jack with the 6T.

"The OnePlus 6T continues our proud tradition of combining industry-leading specs with Fast and Smooth software for a truly burdenless experience", a OnePlus announcement notes. Prices top out at $629 if you max out the RAM and storage, just FYI. For $579 you get 8GB. Lastly, the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant is priced at RS 45,999. In all likelihood it'll nearly certainly be behind that of the Global (unlocked) version of the phone every time OnePlus has an update. The bootloader will be unlockable, but only after the device has been paid off and has spent 40 days on the T-Mobile network.

Asia Bibi to leave Pakistan
Authorities also stepped up security near an undisclosed detention facility where Bibi is being held for her safety. The acquitted woman - Asia Bibi - was facing the death penalty for allegedly making derogatory remarks about Islam.

This will be the first time that OnePlus will bring this colour to any of its smartphones. Although, Verizon won't sell it in its stores.

That one version of the OnePlus 6T available at T-Mobile USA has 128GB internal storage, 8GB RAM, and a Mirror Black exterior casing.

OnePlus 6 has got a new OxygenOS 9.0.2 update with the new navigation gestures. The bootloader can not be unlocked, so you're stuck with the official software, and updates will have to go through T-Mobile before they hit the phone.

The moral of the story is: If you're an enthusiast, don't buy a carrier device.

Even with that long list of deficiencies, the T-Mobile version will be the best choice for a lot of people. In other words, even an old OnePlus X that wasn't even $300 at retail can be traded-in right now for a $300 discount on the OnePlus 6T.
