There's a good black friday deal for this phone, but the Mint Mobile variant doesn't seem to really be mentioned here. What are the odds it can be unlocked like the TMobile version?

I'd imagine that the Mint variant of this phone is the same as the T-Mobile variant. If that's the case, the official way to unlock the bootloader requires SIM unlocking the device. However, Mint's unlock policy kinda sucks...
  • Customers must have had their locked device activated on Mint Mobile service for no fewer than 12 months...
However, you can also try running this ADB command to enable the OEM unlock option in Developer options without SIM unlocking the device (from this thread):
Code:
adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.qualcomm.qti.uim
If that works, you can just request an unlock code from OnePlus and get your bootloader unlocked. See the linked thread for details.
