A T-Mobile OnePlus 6T could be quite popular (poll results)
This fall, T-Mobile's smartphone lineup will reportedly include an unusual device: the OnePlus 6T. We say unusual because the 6T would become the very first OnePlus phone to be sold by a US carrier. Until now, all of OnePlus' handsets released in the US have been sold directly (and unlocked) by the company, mainly online.   

The OnePlus 6T could be launched by T-Mobile as early as October, costing $550 (although the final price may change). With this in mind, last week, we published a poll asking you the following question: Do you think you'll want to buy the OnePlus 6T from T-Mobile?

As it turns out, a T-Mobile OnePlus 6T might be quite popular, with 66.81% of those who voted in our poll being open to the idea of buying the device. Only 16.56% of voters firmly said they wouldn't purchase the OnePlus 6T from T-Mobile. Furthermore, the remaining 16.63% would have to wait and see what other phones T-Mobile's fall lineup includes before making a decision.

Sure enough, these poll results won't automatically translate into high sales numbers. But there's definitely plenty of interest in the 6T, so things look promising for both T-Mobile and OnePlus.    

We still don't know exactly what the OnePlus 6T will bring in terms of design and features. However, it's likely that the handset won't be too different from the OnePlus 6 (pictured above), which is a 6.3-inch handset powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor and packing plenty of other high-end features usually found in more expensive devices. Of course, the 6T should come with some upgrades over the OnePlus 6, and it might have a significantly smaller notch.

If you didn't see our poll last week, feel free to share your thoughts on the OnePlus 6T (and its upcoming release on T-Mobile) in the comments section. 

Do you think you'll want to buy T-Mobile's OnePlus 6T?

It depends on what other phones will be available when it launches

Sounds good ... until they lock the bootloader and take away one of the most attractive parts.

The thumbnail image on the main page seems like it might be a bit misleading. It's showing a phone splashing around in water...but there is no indication that OP has added water resistance to their devices. Unless you guys are holding out on us, of course.

I think it has already a water resistance, not advertised by the company but Ive seen some water tests on yt which shows that it hold pretty good.

The OnePlus 6 is "water resistant under certain conditions" and that's an official promo image of it.

This might be my 2nd OnePlus since the original. I hope it has that little teardrop notch.

They should speed things up and make this phone available sooner.

I really like this phone and the price is an attractive but only issue I have the fact that it's not compatible with Verizon. It could still a contender if Pixel 3 and iPhone are priced super expensive.

I'd have to drive 6 miles into town just to be able to use T-Mobile. No thanks, I'll keep mine on AT&T.
