There are some catches to buying a OnePlus 6T through T

One would thus expect the OnePlus 6T to have a red version as well.

OnePlus 6T, which is right now the second fastest Android smartphone as per AnTuTu benchmark, is creating ripples everywhere.

OnePlus is updating the OnePlus 6's software to match that of the newly launched 6T. Out of the gate, the OnePlus 6T is locked and stays that way while you're making payments on it. After other smartphone majors such as Apple and Samsung dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack, this is the first OnePlus smartphone to come without the headphone jack.

These features are all included in the out-of-box update available to the unlocked Global version of the OnePlus 6T.

If you're on Verizon and have been waiting for your chance to use a OnePlus phone, this is the year you've been waiting for. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expandable via microSD card. It's the 8GB/128GB Mirror Black model of the phone, and it only has one SIM slot instead of the usual dual-SIM compatibility. We are referring to the Unlock app (for network unlocking) and the T-Mobile account manager app.

The first bit of evidence for this stems from a now-removed listing of OnePlus devices on an official support page, first caught by Ishan Agarwal.

The new OnePlus 6T comes with an attractive pricetag, the model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage can be yours for $579 or double the storage to 256GB for $629. In all likelihood it'll nearly certainly be behind that of the Global (unlocked) version of the phone every time OnePlus has an update. For tinkerers, the T-Mobile variant is even less desirable. The OnePlus 6T sounds like a decent upgrade for OnePlus 5T and older users if they were willing to trade a metal body phone with that of an all-glass phone. They'll eventually make their way to the T-Mobile version, but, as it is with updates like this throughout the future, they'll be coming here later than they've come to the global version of the phone.
