OnePlus working on 5G phone, may tie up carriers in the US

OnePlus Says It’ll Bring Phones to US Carriers and They’ll be Bloatware Free OnePlus will launch a 5G phone in 2019, try to partner with US carriers

At Mobile World Congress Shanghai, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau talked about future plans for the company. Sales of OnePlus devices recently started at carriers in Europe, and with the USA market so much more reliant on carrier sales, it only makes sense to make a push here. 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.

Lau pointed out that the phones that be sold via U.S. carriers would be free from bloatware - pre-installed apps that users may or may not require on their phone, often permanent in nature.

He did not specify which OnePlus model will be the first to launch with 5G support.

It seems like OnePlus is going to have some exciting stuff coming with its next phone, presumably named 'OnePlus 7.' It'll be interesting to see how all this pans out. One of them, if not both, should pack a 5G modem inside.

England are in wrong half of draw, says former coach Eriksson
His pass completion rate stands at 95 percent, and he's brought an air of calm assurance to England's backline. The knockout game is the biggest game for a decade, so we had to make sure our key players were preserved.

Not only will it mean that the phone will get 5G support, but it could also mean the next OnePlus flagship being compatible with more carriers because of Qualcomm's chip - right now, it only works with AT&T and T-Mobile.

However, Lau does promise a "burdenless" experience with a commitment to no bloatware.

It's not been too long since OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6. Lau told PCMag that the company had to justify the utility of the notch and provide a way to turn it off, which the company did. But OnePlus might beat Apple when it comes to launching 5G phones.
