Tech enthusiasts are looking forward to the OnePlus smartphones that are scheduled to come this year, which is which is why it comes to no surprise that people are always on the lookout for new rumors, leaks and official talks about it. So what new details do we have this time around? Well, apparently, the Shenzhen-based tech company’s next handset OnePlus 7 could be the next new speed king with UFS 3.0 storage.

He/She then followed it up with a reply on the same Tweet saying, “You can look forward to the Next OnePlus”.
But Wait… What Is UFS?
UFS stands for Universal Flash Storage which is a specification for digital cameras, mobile phones, and consumer electronic devices. As reported by BusinessToday, it is a high-performance interface designed for use in applications where power consumption needs to be minimized. In addition to that, it brings higher data transfer speed and increased reliability to flash memory storage.
So Is It The OnePlus 7?
The Shenzhen-based tech company usually releases two smartphones annually – one is on the first half of the year and the other in the second half. Back in 2017, we had the OnePlus 5 and 5T, and in 2018 we had OnePlus 6 and 6T.
With that being said and given that the currently available model at the moment is the OnePlus 6T, the OnePlus handset that Ice Universe is referring to look forward to is the OnePlus 7.
As for its release date, based on the release date of the previous models, it is expected to come either in May or June.
But What About The Rumored OnePlus 5G Phone?
Back in November, OnePlus clarified that its upcoming 5G phone not be the OnePlus 7, but will launch in early 2019. As for its retail price, it is expected to cost $650/€650 which is $100 more than the OnePlus 6T’s price.
A month later, the company made another announcement saying that the upcoming OnePlus 5G phone will launch before the end of May.
