The OnePlus 6T has sold 249% more units than the OnePlus 6

When T-Mobile announced that more people had lined up for the OnePlus 6T than for Apple’s iPhone XS, it certainly looked as though OnePlus’ latest flagship was off to a strong start. But most people probably wouldn’t have anticipated the growth levels that the company has now provided.

In a recent interview with PCMag, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau announced that US sales of the OnePlus 6T were up a whopping 249% during the first 30 days when compared to the OnePlus 6. This is primarily due to the smartphone being available to purchase on T-Mobile, something that has helped to expand OnePlus’ brand recognition. Another factor that is likely to have helped is T-Mobile’s initial trade-in promotion. This allowed consumers to purchase the OnePlus 6T for just $279 during its first week of sales whenever one of over 30 eligible devices was replaced.

For those unaware, the OnePlus 6T boasts a large 6.4-inch display complete with a waterdrop notch towards the top. This is accompanied by a glass and aluminum construction and a dual-camera setup on the rear. The smartphone also includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a large 3,700mAh battery.

Currently, there are three models on sale. These are the 6/128GB, 6/256GB, and 8/256GB versions. However, earlier today the company announced a special McLaren Edition model that includes a whopping 10GB of RAM and goes on sale December 13.

Not really a FAIR comparison. The OP6T was the FIRST carrier branded phone sold in the USA. Before that, you had to purchase it online. But, you can bet the "king of social media advertising" will talk this up.

just shows that its tough to crack into the U.S market for new entrants, takes time n patience to finally get into the good books of the carrier overlords, nothing has changed in the last decade ,other than the fact that the cringy carrier branded phones died , but to succeed you still need connections n marketing tie ups to compete with the big guys like Samsung n Apple on fair terms. highly doubt that either Huawei or Xiaomi can crack the U.S market anytime soon. Good luck to oneplus.
