The American technology market is very allergic to Chinese products for reasons best known to the market. While some say the products are fake, others say these products are spies for the Chinese government. When banning Huawei and ZTE, the American government claims that products from these companies will compromise national security. Thus, selling a Chinese technology product in the American market is not smooth sailing. Chinese manufacturer, OnePlus officially confirmed the compatibility of the OnePlus 10T with North American operators.
