The OnePlus 6T is here and official, and it’ll work on Verizon, too

OnePlus has announced their latest and greatest OnePlus 6T, and although we’ve seen quite a bit of the phone in leaks, OnePlus still managed to drop a few surprises. Best of all, yes, you’ll be able to actually walk into a T-Mobile store and purchase one, but even better is that it’ll work on Verizon’s network, too.

The specs are pretty stellar, like always, and you’ll find a 6.4-inch 2340×1080 AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 845 CPU, RAM in either 6 or 8GB configurations, and up to 256GB of internal storage. There’s a spacious 3700mAh battery packed in, and OnePlus is sticking with their dual-camera setup with a 16MP and 20MP pair of sensors.

The small teardrop notch is making an appearance, too, which might please some of you that are against the giant notches on some other phones. We already knew that there’s a fingerprint scanner underneath the display, but that’s obviously a focus point for OnePlus here as well. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like this year will bring waterproofing or wireless charging to the OnePlus family, which is a pretty big disappointment considering how commonplace both of those features are now.

The OnePlus 6T will launch next week running Android 9.0 Pie and the latest Oxygen OS for $549 on the base 6GB/128GB version. Adding 2GB of RAM will run $579, and going for the 8GB/256GB version will cost $629. Get those wallets ready.
