T-Mobile will support the upcoming OnePlus 6T smartphone when it launches later this year. In doing so, it will become the first major U.S. carrier to support a OnePlus device, according to CNET.

As an exclusive, the OnePlus 6T will be fully optimized to work on T-Mobile’s network, according to people familiar with the plans. Regardless, you’ll still be able to buy a standard global version of the OnePlus 6T that will run on either AT&T or T-Mobile.

The price of the OnePlus 6T, which hasn’t officially been announced, is tentatively set at $550.

CNET explains there is one hiccup that could slow the OnePlus 6T U.S. launch. It must first receive “technical approval” by the carrier. Failure to get the approval could cause a delay with the carrier launch.

Since the OnePlus 3T launch in late 2016, OnePlus has released phones according to a tick-tock upgrade schedule. In doing so, it launches a new generation first, followed by a refined version about half a year later.

The OnePlus 6 was officially announced on May 16 and went on sale one week later. The OnePlus 6 features Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back and comes in three different colors, Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Pearl White. The handset is also now available in red

It offers dual rear-facing cameras, sensors measuring 16- and 20-megapixels, and improved optical image stabilization. Inside, you’ll find Qualcomm’s flagship chip, the Snapdragon 845.

The base $529 OnePlus 6 smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. For another $50, you’ll get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For $629, storage jumps to 256GB.
