Specifically, the 6T will feature a "whole new UI".

Even if the OnePlus 6T isn't Verizon-certified, it might still work on parts of the network.

Besides the new night mode, another leak suggests the Indian pricing of the device which indicates that the OnePlus 6T will start at Rs 37,999 in India for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. However, that doesn't mean there still isn't plenty of room for rumors and speculation! While it is a new version, it appears to have no major changes.

OnePlus is also saying that the OnePlus 6T software will use improved gesture-based navigation. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 6T is expected to come with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box, suggesting that updates and feature additions for the current line-up might be on hold till after the launch of the OnePlus 6T.

Another LTE-only handset on Verizon is the Asus Zenfone V, so such a move definitely wouldn't be unheard of.

Verizon is the largest carrier in the U.S.by a long shot.

Granted, if you were to pop a Verizon SIM card into an unlocked device with the proper band support, you might have some decent functionality, depending on where you are located and what you are doing (data, phone calls, texts, etc.).

As such, OnePlus has so far simply not bothered and only issued GSM-compatible phones.
