T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced that the Un-carrier will be the exclusive U.S. wireless provider for the new OnePlus 8T+ 5G superphone. The new 5G smartphone taps into T-Mobile’s 600 MHz 5G and 2.5 GHz 5G spectrum on America’s first and largest 5G network — and is the first 5G smartphone with standalone 5G capabilities right out of the box. And all that 5G goodness is on top of T-Mobile’s advanced LTE network which covers 99% of Americans. Plus, both new and existing T-Mobile customers get it for half off with 24 monthly bill credits when adding a new line. The new 5G smartphone will be available for pre-order this Friday, October 16 and in stores on October 23.
“We’ve had a longstanding partnership with OnePlus and look forward to continuing that with the latest 5G smartphone, exclusive to T-Mobile in the U.S.,” said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile. “T-Mobile has more low and mid band spectrum than any other U.S. wireless provider and this new smartphone taps into all that goodness with clear, dedicated spectrum on America’s largest 5G network.”
T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network covers over 260 million people across 1.3 million square miles. And thanks to the Un-carrier’s massive supply of ideal mid-band 5G spectrum (2.5 GHz), in many places, mid-band 5G average download speeds are already around 300 Mbps with peak speeds approaching 1 Gbps…that’s 7.5X faster than today’s average LTE speeds. T-Mobile’s mid-band 5G is already in 210 cities and towns with thousands more on the way by end of year.
The OnePlus 8T+ 5G features a 6.55” FHD+ 120 Hz Fluid Display with quad rear cameras and IP68 rating. It comes packed with a 4,500 mAh battery (two 2250 mAh series connected batteries) with a new 65W Warp Charge technology that gives a full charge in 39 minutes.
