OnePlus will launch its first 5G mobile in 2019
The mobile boom with 5G is about to begin. Xiaomi is in the lead, as it will present the Mi Mix 3 with 5G this month. But it does not come alone, brands are beginning to implement this technology. One of them is OnePlus, which is already preparing its mobile with 5G for 2019.
OnePlus’ 5G mobile will see the light in 2019
As Qualcomm had announced, at least two 5G phones will hit the market next year. The OnePlus 7 will be one of them, and it is that Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus, has confirmed that They will launch a mobile with 5G in 2019. No, we are not talking about the OnePlus 6T, but about its next flagship: the One Plus 7.
This device It would already be in a 5G testing phase at Qualcomm offices, in order to test the Snapdragon X50 modem that it will have and ensure its correct operation for the launch. In this way, it could be launched during the first half of 2019.
But this though ensures that it is one of the first mobile phones on the market with 5G, does not make it the first mobile to incorporate this technology. And it is that everything indicates, as we had already spoken, that The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be the first mobile with 5G on the market, since there is only a short week left for it to see the light. Despite this, it will continue to be ahead of the classic brands, which we do not expect to adopt this technology at least in the first part of the year.
The OnePlus 7 will and will not have 5G
As if it were Schrödinger’s cat, the OnePlus 7 will support 5G and won’t take it, All at the same time. How can it be? Very simple, the rumors suggest that we will see several versions of the OnePlus 7 at its launch.
Along with the issue of storage and RAM, there would also be differences in this aspect. For example, we could talk about three different models:
- OnePlus 7 (6+64GB) 4G
- OnePlus 7 (8+128GB) 4G
- OnePlus 7 (8+256GB) 5G
In this way, we would have 5G connectivity in the OnePlus 7, yes, but only in its top model. Thus, those of OnePlus would avoid increasing costs in its most basic model and having to raise the price, going against the brand’s own philosophy, without having to give up being one of the first manufacturers to bet on 5G.
Will 5G connectivity be a decisive factor for the OnePlus 7? Leave us your opinion in the comments.
