Just a few months after the OnePlus 6 was out, we are already on to discussing its next year’s flagship, the OnePlus 7. The phone is likely to be launched sometime in mid-2019 but the work for it seems to have already begun. Apart from all the basic features and functionalities, the 2019 flagship from OnePlus might have a standout feature.
According to a report by PhoneArena, the OnePlus 7 could be the first smartphone to come with 5G connectivity. The Chinese smartphone maker’s CEO had announced during the MWC event that OnePlus is working with a US carrier to launch a 5G smartphone, probably next year. Now, given its strong ties with Qualcomm, it is very likely that the OnePlus 7 can come with 5G since it is about to launch in the same time frame.
If OnePlus 7 comes with 5G, apart from the US, it can very well be the first smartphone in the world to come with 5G connectivity. It will definitely be the USP of the device apart from all the other functionalities.
However, it is not yet clear whether OnePlus will offer the 5G variant of the OnePlus 7 for other regions. It is currently speculated that it will tie-up with a US-based carrier. If true, this will be the first smartphone to be sold via a carrier-based model.
Until then, we are probably going to witness the launch of OnePlus 6T before the end of this year. We will keep you updated on all the happenings from OnePlus as well as other brands. Keep in touch with us on the blog, Facebook and Twitter.
