After plenty of leaks, the OnePlus 6T has officially been revealed for all to see. There aren't too many surprises given what we already know about the device, but it's a beastly smartphone with value pricing, as is usually the case with OnePlus releases. Like most other Android flagships that have been released this year, the OnePlus 6T makes use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that can be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.

Smartphone makers seem intent on finding out exactly how much money they can get away with charging for their flagship phones, with several models now topping the $1,000 mark. Traditionally, wireless carriers would let customers spread the cost over a period of 12 or 24 months. T-Mobile is taking things a step further, however, with a with new 36-month installment plan.

It appears that T-Mobile has only recently squashed a rather serious bug that affected one of the company's subdomains used by staff. In this case, promotool.t-mobile.com was not password protected, allowing anyone that stumbled across it to access stored data.
