At launch, the OnePlus 6T was a sadly monochromatic affair. You could have any color you wanted, so long as it was black (in either matte or glossy). So if you were waiting for some more fun options — as the company is historically known to have — your watch is nearly over. OnePlus has just revealed that its Thunder Purple color for the OnePlus 6T is coming to the US and Europe on November 15th. Read More
As many had speculated, OnePlus is offering its brand-new 6T on T-Mobile. This is the Shenzhen-based company's first venture into US carrier partnerships, and to spice things up, T-Mobile is offering $300 towards the 6T with the trade-in of any one of 33 phones. That $300 figure doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the newer flagships on the list, but for the older ones, this could be a great opportunity to get a nice discount. Read More
OnePlus has been surprisingly hesitant to illuminate the precise differences between the T-Mobile and unlocked versions of its phones, but gradually the distinctions are coming to light. Recently, it was revealed to us that the T-Mobile version replaces the OnePlus Launcher's "Shelf" functionality with the popular Google Read More
Now Feed Discover, and OnePlus remains tight-lipped as to whether the feature is coming to other phones, though it admits only the T-Mobile version has it for now.
ARCore updates generally just bring support to a set of both old and new Android devices, but every once in a while we're treated to something pretty unexpected. In the latest version, new profiles can be found for one, or maybe even two currently unreleased Google devices. The first of these devices bares the Bonito name, originally expected to be a mid-range Pixel phone. There's also a brand new fish-themed codename that may represent an entirely new device: Sargo.

With its latest phone, OnePlus has graduated from 'flagship on a budget' to be a true contender for the best smartphone around. Check out Ryne's review if you don't believe me. Open sales started in the US several days ago, but it's now available to buy in Europe too. Read More
At launch, OnePlus was surprisingly quiet when it came to particulars about the T-Mobile version of its Oneplus 6T, but in a post published late last night to the company's forums, additional details about both the partnership between the two companies and the differences in the T-Mobile version of the phone were discussed at more length. If you were hoping to root or ROM your T-Mobile-bought OnePlus 6T, you can, in fact, unlock the bootloader, you'll just need to pay the phone off early. Read More
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.
In a landscape where Google's latest phones start at $800, I think the $549 6T is a legitimate Pixel 3 alternative, delivering fantastic performance and much-improved photos with fewer subjective problems. You'll still envy the Pixel 3's camera and Call Screen, though. Read More
A major strength of OnePlus since its inception has been its willingness to engage with its community of users and, by this point, fans. That doesn't show any sign of changing, thankfully, and in the wake of the OnePlus 6T launch, co-founder Carl Pei and his team hosted an AMA on the company's forum. Read More
Open sales for the OnePlus 6T began at 9am EDT today, so the phone is now available to purchase directly from the company around the world. If you're in the US, you can also pick one up from T-Mobile. Read More
