With 5G’s availability steadily rising, more and more brands are coming out with phones that can support it. OnePlus was one of the first to come out with a 5G-enabled phone. Today, they’ve announced the launch of their second 5G-enabled smartphone, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren, which will be exclusively available at T-Mobile.
The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition is an even more premium version of the OnePlus 7T Pro which was never actually released in the U.S. – until now. In addition to its premium specs, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren shows itself off with a glossy black finish paired with a Damascus steel design that is enhanced by classic McLaren Papaya orange accents. To say the least, it’s stunning.
Besides for its spiffy finish, its specs are quite similar to the OnePlus 7T Pro, with both having a 6.67-inch 90Hz fluid display with HDR10+, a triple camera system consisting of a 48MP main camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 4,085Mah battery capacity. But unlike the 7T Pro, the McLaren edition will not offer a choice for its memory configuration, but instead, it only offers a beefy 256GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.
On its own, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren retails for $899 but as of today, T-Mobile is offering a limited-time promo where you can trade-in an eligible device and get up to $300 off. Additionally, you can activate a new voice line and couple that with their trade-in promo and get up to $900 off. This essentially means you can get the phone for free.
Some of the devices that are eligible for the trade-in promo include the iPhone XS and XS Max, iPhone X and XR, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S10 and its 5G variant, and the OnePlus 7 Pro. Devices must, of course, be in good condition and the trade-in credit given will be based on the fair market value of the device. Once that has been determined, you can make a downpayment if needed (you can use your credits) and the remaining balance will be billed over 24 months. Current T-Mobile customers can also avail of the new phone via T-Mobile’s no-interest Equipment Installment Plan for $37.50 per month for 24 months.
Customers who decide to trade in-store will be eligible to receive credits instantly. It’s also possible to mail-in an eligible phone you wish to trade-in which will result in a one-time bill credit based on the device’s value. This mail-in option can be done as long as its within 30 days of receiving the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren. It’s important to note that T-Mobile states that this offer is for “well-qualified” customers. Should you decide to cancel your line before receiving 24 bill credits, you may owe up to $899.99 which is basically the cost of the device.

5G is still a developing technology in the U.S. and around the world, but it’s steadily becoming available in more areas. We recommend checking whether or not your location supports 5G or not before purchasing a 5G-enabled smartphone.
