OnePlus phones are sold unlocked, so they only work in the US on the AT&T and T-Mobile network. The company has no plans to build a version that works for Verizon or Sprint because of the resources required to build a device that would run on their CDMA standard.

Lau noted that the Verizon certification process is the most difficult one, and OnePlus doesn't have the bandwidth for the carrier. The company would have to raise its prices to support different networks, which it's reluctant to do.

OnePlus does partner with some European carriers, including Finland's Elisa, but that was largely to get its phones into a retail store. The company does plan on hosting more pop-up stores and meetups in the US, but not necessarily to promote the OnePlus 5T, Lau said.

Still, Lau understands the importance of US carriers and hopes the word-of-mouth popularity of OnePlus spurs the carriers to seek the company. He kept the door open to a partnership down the line.
