T-Mobile will carry the new OnePlus 6T, the first time a phone from the popular Chinese manufacturer has been offered by a U.S. wireless provider.

The 6T launches exclusively on T-Mobile starting Thursday, the company said during an unveiling event in New York City. But the company is offering an early sale at its Times Square store in New York City starting at 5 p.m. Eastern today.

In a press release, T-Mobile called OnePlus’ offerings “superphones packed with flagship specs at a fraction of the flagship price.” The 6T boasts 128GB of internal storage, fingerprint security functionality, 8GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 845 processor, a 20 mega-pixel dual rear camera and 16 mega-pixel front facing camera and a 6.41-inch OLED screen.

“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.

The OnePlus 6T retails for $549, but for a limited time T-Mobile is offering it for $300. That translates to $0 down and $11.67 per month over two years if users trade in an eligible device.
