OnePlus Eying U.S. Carriers As It Preps Next Flagship

OnePlus is looking to grow its business beyond the enthusiast crowd. Speaking to CNET, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said, "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment" with a distribution deal with U.S. carriers. OnePlus handsets are available only from the company itself. Striking a distribution deal with a U.S. carrier would give the brand far more visibility. For now, OnePlus believes it can earn more sales via its reputation. Lau also noted the company's next handset is arriving toward the end of the second quarter and it will make use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. "Of course, there's no other choice," Lau said. OnePlus is not sure if it will produce two flagship handsets in 2018, as it has done the two previous years. Last, OnePlus expects to bring the Face Unlock feature, first offered on the 5T, to its older 3 and 3T handsets. "There's no reason to withhold features we can easily implement," said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

It's a mistake, and here's why

This is not my idea, but I fully agree with it.
I've owned all OP's except the 2.
OP is very good to their customers, with the exception of a little model myopia (3,3T,5,5T) but updates have been up front, and timely. And for a 2~3 year model, quality is exceptional for US models.
So why complicate "all things OnePlus" by having a carrier weigh in on content and updates?
