OnePlus 7 Will Not Be the First 5G Smartphone? Find Out More Details
The Shenzhen-based manufacturer has recently a successful launch of the OnePlus 6T and seems to be preparing for next year. A handful of reports about a second super-fast handset alongside the highly-anticipated OnePlus 7 are surfacing online.
According to Forbes, the company’s chief executive officer Pete Lau announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress Shanghai that an upcoming launch of a 5G handset is aimed for next year. He also indicated that the relationship between the company and Qualcomm will be the basis of the 5G circuitry. This means that the company will become one of the first 5G mobile phone makers.
For those who are not aware, the release of OnePlus 6T is the company’s yearly ‘T’ model refresh. This also marks an important milestone for the company to start carrier collaboration in the USA with the current smartphone on US carrier T-Mobile. This handset is already available in stores.
Also, the company will be the first set of OEMs shipping 5G smartphones. This won’t be the OnePlus 7 because a new lineup or another refresh may probably be having updated components. This first OnePlus 5G smartphone will be entirely different with a different brand. The device will be more expensive to manufacture because of its connectivity. This explains the reason the successor won’t get 5G.
Meanwhile, the company is getting ready to provide the best photography with the OnePlus 7. Currently, Google’s Pixel lineup introduced the Night Sight mode. This feature sets the benchmark of low light photography to a much higher extent. Then, the new charging technology will be a part of the upcoming device.
Even if there is no information yet available on the pricing of the upcoming smartphone, the price is expected to be higher than all previous OnePlus devices. This will likely happen because this handset will offer more value than its price tag. It may arrive in the month of May or June 2019.
