OnePlus will launch a 5G phone in 2019, try to partner with US carriers

OnePlus Says It’ll Bring Phones to US Carriers and They’ll be Bloatware Free

Fortunately the phone makers have started revealing some of their plans for 5G handsets, including everyone's favourite Chinese phonemaker OnePlus.

Talking to PC Mag this week, during Mobile World Congress Shanghai (China), OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that the company's already "working with U.S. carriers" as it plans to launch a 5G smartphone sometime next year.

But overall 5G isn't likely to be one of the big selling points of the OnePlus 7, or even the OnePlus 7T if that doesn't pan out. Several US carriers will run 5G trials by the end of 2018, but that doesn't mean that the OnePlus 6T, which is probably due in late 2018, will support 5G networks.

The probable reason why OnePlus could be one of the first companies to launch a 5G smartphones is because of its good ties with Qualcomm.

It seems like OnePlus is going to have some exciting stuff coming with its next phone, presumably named 'OnePlus 7.' It'll be interesting to see how all this pans out.

According to a GSM Arena report, Lau said its devices would be sold through carrier stores in the US.

Lau also said the company was hoping to make its devises available via the networks over in the US.

No details on which carrier or carriers it is negotiating with right now - currently, the OnePlus 6 is only mentioned to work with AT&T and T-Mobile. This year's iPhone X successors aren't supposed to pack 5G support, because that's not how Apple does things.
