Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, said last month that OnePlus would be among the first to launch a 5G smartphone in 2019. The company also confirmed that its team had already performed a 5G test at Qualcomm’s headquarters in
Although we do not know which OnePlus smartphone will activate the 5G compatibility, it is clear that it will not be the OnePlus 7. Although it is only speculation about the details and the publication, new information was provided by sources close to the company.
According to the report published by the Spanish branch of CNET, the company revealed that the OnePlus 7 will only be not released with the support of 5G . Instead, there will be another device under a new brand .
The report reveals that the company’s smartphone compatible with 5G technology would be very expensive because the 5G technology itself is new and relatively expensive. To keep the OnePlus 7 cost in line with its predecessors, the company has decided not to integrate 5G at the moment.
A “VALUE FOR MONEY”
That makes sense, OnePlus released due to the “value for money” factor . Most OnePlus smartphones are highly recommended, thanks to their good value for money. There is no doubt that the madness would not be similar if the company increased the price of its flagship .
The report also speculates that the company could choose the Mobile World Congress 2019 to launch the 5G smartphone. That means we may not see two, but three, OnePlus smartphones next year. Of course, and like any rumor, it is important to take this with tweezers.
