Chinese headset manufacturer OnePlus is making its phones available through a US carrier for the first time. T-Mobile will sell the OnePlus 6T through both its retail stores and online as of November 1st as part of an exclusive deal.

The device sell for $580 up front in an 8GB/128GB configuration ($0 down and $24.17 per month for two years), but it'll be available for $300 ($0 down and $11.67 per month) for a "limited time" if you trade in qualifying hardware.

"We've seen real demand for OnePlus smartphones at T-Mobile. Nearly 200,000 customers have already brought theirs to the Un-carrier – paying full price up front – before we even started carrying them. Wow! So, we did what we always do: listened and delivered by bringing the OnePlus 6T exclusively to our customers," said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile.

OnePlus is unusual among Chinese tech companies, which typically focus on mass-market products for domestic customers. OnePlus, by contrast, only sells premium phones that cost US$400 or more and almost exclusively online except in India. It derives two-thirds of its revenue from outside China and is the top seller of premium smartphones in India. 

The foray by 5-year-old Shenzhen-based OnePlus comes after U.S. mobile carriers AT&T and Verizon this year backed away from plans to work with China's Huawei on high-end phones in face of pressure from the U.S. government, which considers Huawei a security risk.
