OnePlus 7 Pro will be a T-Mobile exclusive in the U.S.

With less than one week to go before the OnePlus 7 Pro reveal, an important piece of information about the device has been confirmed: It’s coming to T-Mobile.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will be exclusive to T-Mobile in the U.S., and T-Mo says its customers will be able to get the new OnePlus flagship before anyone else.

T-Mobile will host a launch event at its Signature Store in New York City on May 14th, the same day of the OnePlus 7 Pro announcement, from 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm ET. On May 15th, OnePlus 7 Pro events will kick off at 2:00 pm local time at T-Mobile Signature Stores in Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, and Santa Monica. And on May 17th, the OnePlus 7 Pro will be available for purchase at any T-Mobile store and from T-Mobile.com.

At the OnePlus 7 Pro launch events in T-Mobile Signature Stores, the first 200 customers will get a OnePlus gift with their purchase. T-Mo will also have drinks and snacks available, and you’ll have the chance to get some limited edition swag, too.

No OnePlus 7 Pro pricing details are available quite yet, but T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray has confirmed that the new OnePlus flagship will support T-Mo’s 600MHz (band 71) LTE coverage.

T-Mobile was the first U.S. carrier to sell a OnePlus device when it launched the OnePlus 6T last year, so it’s not a huge surprise to learn that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be available from T-Mo as well. It’s nice to get confirmation ahead of the device’s launch, though, and what’s even better is that it’ll be available to all T-Mo customers within a few days of the phone’s official announcement.

    thats great… I love my 6T,may be time to use JOD!

  • James

    My T-Mobile 6t is still on Jan 1 security Android patch smh that defeats the whole purpose of having one of these. Might get a new one but not from T-Mobile or any carrier, so I guess I won’t be getting the OnePlus 7 Pro. Pixel looks good though…

    • Alex Pilaia

      You should 100% always get it from the manufacturer and not Tmo (unless you need to pay it Monthly). I have the 1+6 from OnePlus directly (not the 1+6T), and I am on March 01 security Patch. They usually send out security patch updates every 2 months or so. I have received 3 of them so far, and I got my phone during black friday 2018.

      • PCFreckle

        I got the 6T from T-mo for the trade-in bonus, etc. Shortly after release XDA had a method to clear the bootlocker and set it to be exactly like a regular 6T (add a $6 Dual SIM tray from ebay to get full Dual SIM function). Best purchase decision I’ve made in some time. Hopefully the 7 Pro will get the same treatment.

    • OnePlus6t IsBoss

      Exactly TMobile fucked up big times on the updates they can kiss my ass.

      I’llbuy directly from OnePlus they warned us last year TMobile wouldn’t be able to keep up with the updates.

      It’s May 9th and my last update was January 2019 meanwhile even my Revvl2Plus has April update.

      Tmobile needs to treat all manufacturers handset with respect when it comes to updates not just Samsung or Apple.

    • argenys

      when the next version of android is release it will finally not matter. security updates are going to be done through the google play store.

    • Rene Shabastari

      Convert your T-Mo software to the international variant. The T-Mo software is the only bummer about this device

  • V2THE1

    No 5g?

    • steadymobb

      Nope. TMobile had already said the S10 5g will be the first phone for them later this summer… With more probably not until next year

    • Bryck

      No 5G no deal. I’ll stick with my 5t untill the the 7T comes out.

    • steveb944

      Hopefully OnePlus can give us a timeline on it.

    • Mike

      adding a 5G modem would increase the phone price to a min of $1k.

      • V2THE1

        I didn’t ask about the price. I just want the 5g. I’ve been paying more then $1000. I gotta think they will deliver a 5g model at some point.

        • Mike

          well if you knew the history of OnePlus there not gonna their phones prices equal to Samsung or Apple because they’ll lose sales. plus it makes no dam sense to release a 5G phone right now.

        • V2THE1

          Wow. Sorry dude. It sounds like you’re being sarcastic about providing an answer to a question with an answer that had nothing to do with the question. It’s cool I got the answer.

      • bman893

        Why would you want 5g ? This phone is a T-Mobile phones and T-Mobile will have 5G for a while this phone will be obsolete by the time you can use it and even if you were to unlock it for another company the only company that truly has 5G right now is Verizon and it’s an extremely limited areabut this phone isn’t a CDMA phone so you can’t use it with Verizon anyway so once again what’s the point of having 5G this phone will be a dinosaur by the time you can even use it LOL

  • Deadeye37

    I hope its not an exclusive thing. I hate good phones only being exclusive to one carrier. I thought we have moved past that, for the most part. I know that you can get unlocked ones, but I think if a carrier wants to sell a phone, they should be able to do it.

    That being said, I can’t wait to see how well this phone performs.I’m tempted to get it myself.

  • Deadeye37

    I know. But is it exclusive at launch, or is it exclusive for a month or 2? Is it exclusive because they paid for the rights, or just because other carriers decided to not pick it up?

    Either way, I don’t like when other carriers are left out. While I like that I can get this through T-mobile, I hate when T-mobile gets left out for other phones that other carriers make exclusive.

    • steveb944

      Exclusivity is what we have had for a while. And I’d say other than Apple or Samsung, OEMs fight for shelf space.

    • I agree with you. Exclusivity stinks, but unfortunately it’s how the game is played when it comes to some devices/carriers.

  • steveb944

    Of course! Right after I got Pixels. Time to swap with my siblings and get the OnePlus 7.

    I’ll leave early from work and go to my local event in my area. Considering the 200 offer they should have plenty of stock, not like the 3a XL I had to search for.

  • Android_God

    I suppose I could get used to the pop up selfie camera. I will miss having the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone,If I decide to get this. Knock on wood! I hope T-Mobile will offer a good trade-in deal for my v30 like they are currently doing for the pixel!

  • David E

    not sure if i need the Pro,though… we will just see!

  • argenys

    I hope this is on JOD on release. Please!

    • bman893

      Of course it is lol

      • argenys

        only doubt came from the just released pixel phones not being eligible.

  • Craig D

    It would be nice if they offer something for OnePlus 6t owners, but I doubt that. With the release date 5 days from now I would expect pricing and offers out already. I also don’t see it saying that it’s a T-Mobile specific version like the OP6T was.

    • Bklynman

      More than likely they will offer a trade in for for it. Like they do most of the time,with never ending credits for the next 2 yrs!!

  • Android_God

    There is a YouTube video that outlines that this phone will start at roughly $799. If that’s the case, I guessI would wait and see if T-Mobile offers a two-for-one deal. If that’s the case, I would be all over this bad boy. But $799 for a phone at that has no wireless charging and no IP certification?

  • Android_God

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this gets a two-for-one deal with T-Mobile. I just hope it is good for current customers but I suppose that’s too much to wish for

  • The Borg

    Wouldn’t be much of a flagship if it didn’t support band 71

    • GoFarKid

      I highly doubt T-Mobile would launch a flagship phone in 2019 that didn’t support Band 71. And besides, the last two new phones launched by OnePlus supported Band 71.

    • KMB877

      OnePlus 6 and 6T have band 71 support. I’m convinced 7T will have too.
