Back in 2018, T-Mobile forged a distribution agreement with OnePlus. Ever since then, they have been offering OnePlus devices through their stores and website. And now, it looks like the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are the two latest devices to be offered by T-Mobile. 

This was recently revealed through a tweet by a credible tipster. The tweet shared that both devices will be available upon launch in the country. 

Specs-wise, the OnePlus 9 has a Fluid AMOLED display while the OnePlus 9 Pro has a curved-edge display. Both devices will run the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and will have 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast charging and 45W wireless charging support. The OnePlus 9 will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage while the OnePlus 9 Pro will have 12GB of RAM and 256GB onboard storage. 

As for its cameras, this hasn’t yet been revealed by OnePlus. But the leaked images reveal that these two models will carry Hasselblad next-gen cameras. 

The two devices are set to be announced at an event in March. A third model, the OnePlus 9E, will also be unveiled at the event as a more affordable option with Snapdragon 870 processor. However, it’s possible that this model will not be sold in the US.

    How about offer some rugged phones for once.

    • dcmanryan

      That’s what a case is for and there’s countless rugged cases available. Also what rugged phone do you suggest they carry? T-Mobile can only sell what manufacturers make.

      • Joe

        If you get a good rugged phone a case isn’t need and it’s easier to use then a phone with a big case. The Kyocera DuraForce PRO 2 is a great phone to be offered if they made one to work. Cat makes some good phones they could offer along with the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro.

        • dcmanryan

          The problem is most rugged phones you’re giving up specs in all areas of the phone but in most cases still paying a premium for the design of the phone. There’s also not much of a market for them so I don’t see them selling them ever. There’s plenty of top notch smaller phones that even with an Otterbox style case will be smaller than some of the phones you mentioned so I just don’t see it ever happening as rugged phones won’t sell.

          I do HVAC and we all have curved screen Galaxy S9 phones with Otterbox cases with very few issues for an example. Before them we did use the various Casio G’z flip phones and I’ll admit you could throw throw those things 30′ and they’re still going to work lol. To this day I’m still a T9 wizard from using those things for years.

      Nobody will buy a rugged phone. Sales would be abysmal. Just ask Samsung about their active line. I worked for tmobile for 4 years and the sales were not good. People are too obsessed with how phones look unfortunately.

    T-Mobile will have to vow to support the 9 line of phones longer than they have the 7 line before I would buy one. The 7 line is barely 2 years old and updates keep getting pushed farther and farther back, even thought they are updating the 6 range, to the point I wonder now if they will just drop the idea and move on. I have just about had it with the sad state of Android updating, because no amount of pushing by Google has yet had any effect. At least with the iPhone, one is assured that if they decide to keep the phone for more than two years it will receive full iOS updates day/date they are released for that entire time, and for years to come as well.

      I have the Mclaren 7t pro that is barely a year old and they still have no android 11 in site and its 2 months behind on security updates. They still are charging 800 for the dam phone. This is a OnePlus issue not just t-mobile. One plus has completely dropped the ball on their promise of timely updates. Heres a idea one plus….. How about stop releasing a dam phone every 6 months that’s almost exactly the same as the last one, and concentrate on keeping your update promises….

        I just bought the McLaren the other day for 550 at walmart site, it’s on amazon for the same price. I can’t believe they are still selling it for 899 at T-Mobile.

        • marque2

          When you do that you need to be extra careful to get the model that is the same as the Tmobile model, or verify that all the Tmobile bands are present. Very often you get “international” phones at discount price but then they won’t work well because only a few of the frequencies are compatible. I have a friend who did this, and wonders why service is so bad. I have other friends who text me because they know I will do the research for them.

        • the martian ambassador

          This is the T-Mobile US branded McLaren model. I agree that it’s not a good idea to buy unlocked international phones for use on the T-Mobile network. They must support band 71 or you will have an unpleasant experience.

        • marque2

          It is good you are paying attention.

      • marque2

        They have a bit harder time because they chose an open source branch of “android” and aren’t using the official Google Android, so more of the development is on them.

        But if you think Oneplus is bad, Motorola is probably the worst. My G5+ was promised an update (I think it was 6- 7 I don’t remember) and the update came 2 1/2 years after I bought the phone. It fun reading how it was released in India, then released in Europe, and coming soon to the USA – but I gave up.

        LG is similar, they are slow with upgrades to begin with, but they always do South Korea First, then some third world place like Brazil, then Europe then …

        Only Samsung seems to do Quick USA updates.

        Why is the USA always last? Could it be that as consumers we are really finicky about having devices work, so they test the upgrades in every other market first? Pixel phones have a bad reputation, often because they have early Android releases – so that could be it.

        not even the global 7 series have gotten the 11 updates yet that is why there is not a stable update for the 7 series yet. also to note that we have still gotten the monthly updates we got jan security update in the beginning of feb. so they are updating the phone again the reason android 11 is not out yet is bc it is not out for the unlocked 7t series phones,, yet they are in beta 3 a stable update wiull come out in march mostlicky this is down to oneplus being behind.

        • Keith Stevens

          There is zero excuses when they have it available for newer devices. They dropped the ball period. Nice try. Stop making excuses for them.

        • shawn murray

          Again t-moble does not get the updates till one plus is done with the global update. that’s not an excuse its one plus not t-mobile. what do you mean its on new devices each device is different. they still have to test it and its in beta 3 and almost ready for stable update then we will get it do you know how the update process even works.

        • Glenn Gore

          You hit the nail right on the head with the reason these updates rarely ever make it to users’ devices. Google issues an Android OS version or Treble program monthly security update, and then the device maker has to “test” these updates before they will release them. Based on track record, evidently this testing can take several months or as much as a year. Or more. After this testing the updates are sent to the carriers, who have to “test” them before finally allowing them to be sent out to customers. And just like with the manufacturers, this testing can take many months or a year before it is completed.

          The end result is that by the time all this “testing and evaluation” is completed, the user has lost interest or their device has reached the end of its lifespan and they have bought a new device. This is seen by the manufacturers and carriers as evidence that users do not care about updates, so they don’t bother with them.

          Before you think this is all hyperbole on my part, I would cite my experience with my old LG V30. I owned the phone for 3 years. During that time, it received ONE full Android OS update, and when I got rid of it, it was 6 months behind on the monthly Google Security updates! I don’t care what the reasoning is, that is totally acceptable. It illustrates the total disregard for all facets of customers’ security.

      I have the McLaren 7t… love the phone, hate the way TMO has gimped it. Software blocked dual SIM. Slow updates… etc. The slow software updates, I’m guessing, is because TMO has to modify the ROM then distribute it. They have no incentive once the phone is out to keep it updated. If TMO could keep their hands out of it we’d probably get faster updates.

      So it’s love-hate with me. I won’t be getting another OnePlus if it’s crippled like the McLaren.

      • shawn murray

        t-mobile did not change much at all and they have been doing better updates on the McLaren we have been getting manly or every other month updates. if you are talking about os 11 not even the global 7 series have gotten the 11 updates yet that is why there is not a stable update for the 7 series yet. so we wont get it till one plus has a stable update. so it’s not t-mobiles fault

  • roger shahan

    If both phones offer the same specs as for charging screen size and wireless charging then I’ll finally get the none pro I hate the curved screen it cracks so easily it’s so damn brittle

    • Jim Mill

      The camera in the memory are going to be different slightly.

    • Jim Mill

      but I do agree there’s probably not going to be enough difference in the cameras to make me want to spend that much more money I’ll be fine with the nine and I will get it good point

  • Buy the non T-Mobile version.
