OnePlus confirms 5G-ready Smartphone for 2019

OnePlus 7, not OnePlus 6T, will have this future-proof feature

Of course, there aren't any 5G networks yet, but we will start seeing them in some countries from next year.

Mobile World Congress Shanghai is underway this week, and at the event, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau revealed some of the company's plans for the future.

Mobile network operators around the world are said to be working on 5G deployment already, although devices are not yet being built to support it. The company had claimed earlier this year that the OnePlus 6T will be launched only if it there is enough new technology to offer. While we can assume that the device which will sport 5G connectivity will be the OnePlus 7 which launches in mid-2019, it could even come later in the year on the OnePlus 7T.

Here in the U.S., most of the wireless business, including phone sales, takes place directly through carriers.

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.

We haven't heard anything about the OnePlus 7 so far, and quite frankly it is too soon to be talking about it as well.

Lau also said that OnePlus will sell phones through carriers in the United States, a move that would offer more people the chance to try the handsets before buying them.

However, Lau does promise a "burdenless" experience with a commitment to no bloatware. This year's iPhone X successors aren't supposed to pack 5G support, because that's not how Apple does things.
