Good specs in a (relatively) cheap package has been OnePlus’ schtick since the original OnePlus One, and with few flops it’s stuck to that formula, bringing us to the OnePlus 6T. Deep down inside, it’s basically just a tweaked OnePlus 6, dropping the headphone jack for an in-display fingerprint reader, bigger battery, smaller notch, and a handful of software improvements.
OnePlus is initially offering the 6T in two colors: Midnight Black (matte) and Mirror Black (glossy). Our review and photos were of the $579 matte 8GB/128GB version. T-Mobile will also be carrying the 8/128GB SKU, but with a few minor differences: it will be single-SIM and carrier locked. Software and hardware for the carrier variant are otherwise unmodified and free of bloat (carrier apps are options at the time of setup), without even a T-Mobile logo on the back.
