The OnePlus 6T is now officially available to buy in the UK and this mid-range phone has one huge advantage.
This is the first time fans of the Chinese smartphone brand can purchase the phone through numerous UK stores and mobile networks.
In fact you can pick one up from oneplus.com, EE, O2, Vodafone, Amazon, Carphone Warehouse, John Lewis and mobile distributor, Data Select.
With a starting price of just £499, this flagship killer certainly has plenty going for it.
And don’t think that low price means this phone doesn’t pack premium features as you’ll find a dual-lens camera, fast Qualcomm 845 processor, large battery and stunning 6.41-inch AMOLED display.
There’s also the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner now embedded under the screen which makes the 6T one of the very first to include this technology.
Express.co.uk recently reviewed the 6T, saying: “OnePlus has done it again with the 6T.
“This phone packs seriously premium features at a price that’s really hard to believe.
“We’ve always been huge fans of OnePlus and the 6T continues to impress.
“It has everything most people want from a smartphone at a price more people can happily to afford.”
It’s worth noting that the cheapest way to take delivery of the OnePlus 6T is buying SIM-only but if you want to spread the cost here’s some deals from UK networks.
The OnePlus 6T is available from EE in two colours – Mirror Black and Midnight Black, with price plans starting from £39 per month with a £50 upfront fee offering unlimited UK minutes, unlimited texts and a 1GB data allowance.
Available on Red Extra, OnePlus 6T starts from £42 per month, with a £29 upfront fee, offering 16GB data.
OnePlus 6T is available from O2 for £43 a month, with £20 upfront cost with 20GB data.
The OnePlus 6T is currently available in the UK in two different colour variants, Midnight Black and Mirror Black.
However, before you rush to buy this phone it’s worth noting that a striking Thunder Purple model has just been unveiled in China.
There’s no word if, or when, this version will arrive in the UK but if you fancy something other than black it might be worth waiting a few weeks to see if more news becomes available.
The Chinese firm does have a habit of releasing extra colours soon after launch with the OnePlus 6 getting a limited edition red design in the months that followed the initial launch.
We’ll bring you more news on the purple 6T as soon as we find out more.
