More people lined up for the OnePlus 6T than for Apple's iPhones, T-Mobile confirms

When it comes to generating interest among consumers with smartphone launches, Apple undeniably takes the crown. But according to T-Mobile, OnePlus is now giving the world’s most valuable company a run for its money.

As many of you may know, the OnePlus 6T was announced this past Monday in New York. Shortly after the event, T-Mobile opened up sales of the smartphone in its flagship Times Square store three days early. And today, the third-largest carrier has announced that OnePlus’ latest device generated a longer line of people than Apple’s iPhone XS series in September.

How many units T-Mobile has managed to sell through its Times Square store so far remains unclear. However, with online pre-orders set to commence tomorrow, the amount of interest the smartphone has already generated suggests the OnePlus 6T will undoubtedly be the best-selling OnePlus device so far.

For those unaware, T-Mobile acts as the smartphone’s exclusive carrier in the US and is currently selling the Midnight Black model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Usually, this particular version would command a price of $579. However, customers that trade in one of over 30 eligible devices can obtain the flagship for just $279.
