T-Mobile shows off its OnePlus 7T in unboxing video (shot on the phone itself)
If you just can't wait for T-Mobile to launch the brand new OnePlus 7T, the carrier is now allowing you to take a sneak peek at the upcoming smartphone in an unboxing video published on YouTube. The video - embedded below - shows off the OnePlus 7T in two color variants: Glacier Blue and Frosted Silver. Both colors will be available to buy at T-Mobile next week, starting October 18.

This unboxing video was shot entirely on a OnePlus 7T, so while it looks nice overall, the quality of the recorded voice is underwhelming. That aside, the video shows the new phone from a multitude of angles while revealing some of its main features - like Android 10, the 6.55-inch 90 Hz display, the triple rear camera, and the 3800 mAh battery with fast charging.

For a comprehensive look at T-Mobile's upcoming handset and its capabilities, you should definitely read our OnePlus 7T review.


The T-Mobile OnePlus 7T will be priced at $599.99 outright, or $25 per month for 24 months. While some markets will have a OnePlus 7T model with 256 GB of internal memory, T-Mobile is only getting a 128 GB model. By the way, no other US carrier intends to sell the OnePlus 7T, although you will be able to buy the smartphone unlocked.

Looks nice, very nice. Video sounds kind of muffled and the camera sample was a little shaky in the video but not a bad looking device. And it has support for Band 71.

Wish we were getting the 256GB version.

I'm going to see what is announced about the Pixel 4 on October 15h before I decide. If it's some outlandish price, doesn't have an awful lot to offer that the 7t doesn't have, or won't be available until late in the year, OnePlus 7t it is for me on October 18th! This packs in so much for the price, I really don't think Pixel 4 will convince me to wait, but I'm glad that the announcements will be made before the 7t goes is available so I can make an informed decision.

Not from Tmobile, they have been horrendously slow with updates with my 6T.

That goes for pretty much any subsidized carrier phone. Don't expect timely updates.

So are the phones T-Mobile is selling locked to their network, or can I buy one in the store and take it to Verizon?

You can take it to Verizon after you pay it off.

So I hope they'll let me buy one up front. I'm not interested in their service, as it's poor in Milwaukee.

Why don't you just buy one directly from OnePlus? Would make more sense. I do wish OnePlus was available on more carriers or at least factory unlocked for all carriers.

I want to see the device in person before committing to a purchase. I guess I could check it out in their store and buy it online...

Since it’s apparent that you are a Verizon customer, and if spending the extra cash is something that you’re willing to do, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G is supposed to be coming to Verizon soon: https://9to5google.com/2019/09/06/verizon-oneplus-7t-pro-leak/ Slightly better specs and the future proofing of 5G to boot, all on the carrier that I assume you’re using. This way, you won’t have to buy from another carrier like T-Mobile, just get it straight from Verizon.

Frankly, I'm not interested in 5G at this point. I remember the debacle of 4G LTE coming online and the poor chipset support for it. I'm not willing to go through that crap again; I'll wait until hardware evolves. And Verizon's plan is crap - there's no way I'm paying them for service that isn't available anywhere but line of sight, and in cities where I don't live. I hope Verizon shuts off their CDMA (coming soon) to covert it to 5G; at least then it would be available through walls.

Understood, just wanted to make you aware of the possible choice, since OnePlus is supposed to be using Verizon as their second U.S. carrier. I agree about the CDMA, but it’s rumored to shut down by the end of next year. It’s a relic that’s long outlived it’s purpose.

Sweet. OnePlus really does make the best bang for your buck smartphones when you consider the price. Packed with flagship features like the 90 Hz display, SD855+, pretty good triple camera system and Android 10 out of the box. OnePlus also has a good track record with updates and their software is packed with features. If one is comparing smartphones that are about to be released, I’d say the 7T offers the best value for money, as the others either don’t offer as much, cost too much for what they offer, or both.

Closes competitor is realme x2 pro that will be announce next week too ( China ) I think is affiliated to OnePlus too. But lower price point.

OnePlus and Realme are affiliated. You are correct in saying that. They are both owned by BBK Electronics.
