Unlocked OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will support Verizon 5G
Although Verizon is not going to carry the newly announced OnePlus 9 devices, one of its representatives has just confirmed via Twitter that the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro is certified to work on the wireless carrier.
I’m psyched to announce that the @OnePlus 9 Pro & OnePlus 9 have been certified to work on @Verizon & @Visible. That means you can buy it from your fav retailer and know that it will work great on Verizon 5G. Visit https://t.co/iPWwLCbRrn when you get your new phone to activate. pic.twitter.com/SK6eUyhJFK

T-Mobile already officially carries both OnePlus phones, but today’s news confirms that the new devices will support 5G bands on two of the three major US carriers. AT&T customers are not as lucky, as the unlocked OnePlus phones will only pick up LTE bands on the carrier.
Between the two devices, only the OnePlus 9 Pro will support Verizon’s mmWave 5G network. Both the 9 and 9 Pro, meanwhile, will support Verizon’s Nationwide low-band 5G signal – along with Verizon’s LTE bands.

At launch, OnePlus could only confirm that its new devices would be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks, but today’s news confirms what many have been wondering. Though Verizon did not work with OnePlus to sell its phones this year, the carrier still sells and supports last year’s OnePlus 8 5G UW.
