Although Verizon won’t be stocking the newly announced OnePlus 9 devices, one of its representatives has just confirmed on Twitter that the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro is certified to work with the wireless operator.
I’m excited to announce that @ OnePlus 9 Pro & OnePlus 9 has been certified for editing @ Verizon & @Visible. That said, you can buy it from your preferred dealer and know that it will work great on Verizon 5G. visit https://t.co/iPWwLCbRrn when you activate your new phone. pic.twitter.com/SK6eUyhJFK

T-Mobile already officially carries both OnePlus phones. However, today’s news confirms that the new devices will support 5G bands on two of the top three US wireless carriers. AT&T customers are not so lucky as the unlocked OnePlus phones only receive LTE bands on the carrier.
Between the two devices, only the OnePlus 9 Pro supports 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.
OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus9
At the start, OnePlus could only confirm that its new devices are compatible with the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. However, today’s news confirms what many have been wondering. Though Verizon didn’t partner with OnePlus to sell its phones this year, the wireless operator is still selling and supporting last year OnePlus 8 5G UW.
