OnePlus eyeing U.S. expansion, 5G phone for 2019

The OnePlus 6 is one of the best Android phones you can buy right now, a device that's a lot cheaper and even faster than the iPhone X it copies. This means that the OnePlus 7 or the OnePlus 7T will also launch in India with 5G network capabilities. Currently, their devices work well on AT&T and T-Mobile but they may also be considering partnering with more since they're using common Qualcomm chipsets anyway.

OnePlus is joining the list of manufacturers who are planning to release 5G-compatible smartphones next year.

Aside from 5G network, what different highlights could be accessible on the OnePlus 7? Reportedly, thanks to strong ties with chipmaker Qualcomm, OnePlus is in a good position to launch a 5G smartphone before other companies. The firm is apparently working with USA carriers and Qualcomm to make its first 5G phone, which will come out at around the same time as 5G being available for the first time in the United States. The CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, made that big appearance at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai occasion and says the organization is as of now chipping away at a 5G smartphone for 2019.

He did not specify which OnePlus model will be the first to launch with 5G support. Until now, we don't have any information about what all American carriers would be selling the next OnePlus device.

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

However, Lau does promise a "burdenless" experience with a commitment to no bloatware. Players like Apple and Samsung will be the first brands to launch smartphones with 5G capabilities, as these brands can produce their own SoC (system on chip).

It is unknown which device Pete was talking about.
