Another gap between the premium phones by Samsung, Apple and OnePlus is the absence of ingress protection certificate. According to a report out of CNET this morning, T-Mobile will get to sell the new OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 6T.
According to the report, T-Mobile would be the exclusive launch carrier for OnePlus in the USA, selling the phone through its retail stores and website.
OnePlus has been a favorite among Android enthusiasts for years thanks to its low prices and powerful hardware. Still, if you've been hoping for carrier support for OnePlus before you pick one up, that wait may be coming to an end soon.
Rumours surrounding the OnePlus 6T are still slim and there is not much that we know about the device right now.

If you need a refresher, here's the picture of Priyanka and Raveena at Manish Malhotra's party that went viral - notice the ring. That was enough to send the media in a tizzy about the marriage of two of the most popular celebrities in India and the US.
Over the last couple of years, OnePlus has been carrying design cues from Oppo smartphones.
The OnePlus 6T is not official, but it seems like a foregone conclusion.
Not only will the usual global version launch, but T-Mobile will sell its own version of the device, a first for the company. Until now, OnePlus has been going it alone and has steadily built up a following. And the OnePlus 6 already has a notch.
CNET reports citing sources familiar with the launch plans that OnePlus will be making a specific, optimised version of the OnePlus 6T for T-Mobile network in the US.
This collaboration, however, will not affect sales in the global market, and the device will still be compatible with both the T-Mobile network and AT&T. That will mean additional testing and certification, which could delay the launch that's now scheduled for October.
