You can now rebrand your T-Mobile OnePlus 6T without unlocking the bootloader

One the best phones of last year, the OnePlus 6T marked a new chapter for the Chinese company. Part of the progress involved a deal with T-Mobile, which came with its pros and cons. Since it's a different SKU from the international dual-SIM variant (such as you'd buy straight from OnePlus), the Tmo version is excluded from things like the Open Beta program. But some savvy people over in the XDA forums figured out a way to rebrand the Tmo 6T to the international version without unlocking the bootloader.

OnePlus is five years old, would probably like to smash some of its past

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei took to Twitter yesterday to remind us of an important anniversary—it's the company's fifth anniversary. Yes, it was just five short years ago that we started seeing the roguish and somewhat tiresome "Never Settle" slogan plastered all over social media. I will admit to some early skepticism of the company, but here we are five years later, and the OnePlus 6T is Android Police's phone of the year.

The Oppo R17 Pro and OnePlus 6T are twins separated at birth - but why?

OnePlus is something of a Cinderella story in the smartphone world. It seemed to appear out of nowhere, releasing a phone with numbers that matched the best the likes of Samsung and HTC had to offer - and did it at half the price. The OnePlus One went viral in a way few products do, and the rest is history (well, as much as four years can be “history”). OnePlus just keeps improving on that formula, most recently with the excellent OnePlus 6T, which I’ve had a chance to use for the last few weeks. And it really is a great phone - we even gave it our ‘Phone of the Year’ award.

Android Police's 2018 Smartphone of the Year is the OnePlus 6T

Android Police often does picks for our top smartphones of any given year - and you can see those phones right here in our 2018 “Most Wanted” article. But this year, we’ve decided to single out one device for attention in particular. The smartphone we thought did most to change the game. To go above and beyond competitors and offer a unique and compelling experience to buyers. And, crucially, that we felt constituted a reasonable value in doing so (that’s not to say it needed to be inexpensive, but that its price was justifiable).

After the editorial staff cast its votes, a winner emerged: the OnePlus 6T - narrowly beating out the Pixel 3.

The T-Mobile OnePlus 6T's second update adds an Assistant power button shortcut and not much else

Carrier versions of phones tend to get updates slower than their unlocked counterparts, so it's no surprise that the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T is receiving updates later than the standard model. This time around, the update's sole highlight is a new power button shortcut for Google Assistant, with everything else merely being upgrades and optimizations.

OnePlus 6T sales are up 249% over the OnePlus 6

OnePlus doesn't say a lot about its phone sales. You might get the occasional empty platitude about sales exceeding expectations or what have you, but CEO Pete Lau reportedly offered a real sales metric to PCMag's Sascha Segan. He says sales of the 6T have jumped 249% compared to the OnePlus 6 launched earlier this year.
