OnePlus had partnered with the largest wireless network carrier in the United States — Verizon to launch the OnePlus 8 UW smartphone. If you were expecting the same with the newly launched OnePlus 8T, then there’s some bad news.
According to a report from Android Authority, Verizon has confirmed that there won’t be a OnePlus 8T Verizon variant. This means that the users of the network carrier won’t be able to get discounts or payment plans for this new smartphone.
However, the report goes on to add that the users may still be able to activate the device on the Verizon network to use it if they already have or purchase an unlocked variant of the OnePlus 8T smartphone.
The reason for not launching a Verizon-exclusive variant of this newly launched flagship smartphone has not been revealed by the company. However, some reports indicate that the reason could be the alleged weak sales of the OnePlus 8 UW smartphone, closing the road for a successor device.
But, OnePlus still has other partnerships in place. T-Mobile will be having OnePlus 8T smartphone on its network and the company is also gearing up to launch an exclusive variant for T-Mobile, dubbed as OnePlus 8T Plus that will come with support for 2.5GHz 5G network and IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
