T-Mobile to sell OnePlus 7 Pro for $29.17 a month; device goes on sale May 17th at all locations



T-Mobile announced today that it will be the first place anywhere in the world where consumers can pick up the just announced OnePlus 7 Pro. The phone will be offered at its Times Square Signature Store from 2-10pm EDT today.  Tomorrow, events will be held at T-Mobile Signature Stores in Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, and Santa Monica. Starting on May 17th, the eagerly awaited handset will be available at T-Mobile stores and through the carrier's website.

T-Mobile notes that the OnePlus 7 Pro supports its low frequency 600MHz spectrum, which means that users should expect improved performance inside buildings and offer better coverage in rural areas of the U.S. It also supports features of LTE-Advanced service including 4 x 4 MIMO (which increases the number of connections between a cell site and a phone), carrier aggregation (which puts together several carrier channels to increase capacity), 256QAM and License Assisted Access. All of this should make the OnePlus 7 Pro run fast over the T-Mobile network.

The OnePlus 7 Pro, available in Mirror Grey and Nebula Blue, is priced at $699.99. You also have the option of using the carrier's Equipment Installment Plan that will allow you to buy the phone for 24 monthly payments of $29.17. The device carries a 6.67-inch notchless fluid AMOLED display with an edge-to-edge screen and a 90Hz refresh rate (compared to the 60Hz found on most phones). It is the first OnePlus phone to carry a QHD+ resolution. Under the hood is Qualcomm's latest, the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform. The model offered by T-Mobile carries 8GB of RAM with 256GB of internal storage, and is equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The triple camera setup on back includes a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 16MP ultra-wide angle camera. There is a popup 16MP selfie snapper and the 4000mAh battery charges to 50% in just 20 minutes. While OnePlus decided not to spend the money to get an IP rating for the device, it did toss one into a bucket full of water to prove that the phone is water resistant. Still, as many phone owners have discovered to their chagrin, even phones with IP ratings are not covered for water damage by the warranty.

Do we know if this is a different T-Mobile variant like the 6T was? Or will this be the same unlocked version they sell on their site?

S10 prices are still higher. But by summer, they should come down more. But I'm with you. No Chinese phones for me.

I was in New York for the launch event and it was definitely a cool experience. Got to meet some of my favorite tech YouTubers and that made the trip worth it. The T-Mobile store was lit all day. Had to come back around after the line went down. Also met Des at the event. Cool dude.
