OnePlus 7 Will Be One Of The First 5G Enabled Smartphones, To Arrive In First Half Of 2019
OnePlus 6T is on the verge of being announced on September 29 and we have solid details on what its heir could offer. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that the company will be releasing a new 5G enabled flagship smartphone next year. He also added that it will be one of the first smartphones to feature 5G. The heir to the 6T will most probably be called the OnePlus 7, so we will stick to it for the time. Dive in to read more details on the subject.
OnePlus 7 To Feature A 5G Modem And Said To launch In H1Of 2019
As we have mentioned earlier, OnePlus 7 will be one of the first, if not the first, smartphone to offer 5G capabilities. The executive also mentioned that his team has already conducted tests for 5G at Qualcomm’s headquarter back in August in San Diego. If the OnePlus smartphone release frames are anything to go by, we will possibly see OnePlus 7 with 5G capabilities in the first half of 2019.
Earlier, Qualcomm chief Amon teased that the first device to feature 5G modem will incorporate the new Snapdragon X50 and it will be available in the first half of the upcoming year. This does give us a rough estimate on when the device will be available in the following year.
At this point in time, details on the OnePlus 7 are quite scarce. In fact, the 5G capabilities in the smartphone is one of the very few things that we actually do know are coming. Apart from this, OnePlus 7 could possibly feature a radical design shift. We have observed the design cycle of OnePlus and we can presume that the company will indeed offer the OnePlus 7 in a new design.
However, OnePlus 7 might be a latter topic to talk about. The latest from the company is its OnePlus 6T which is scheduled to be announced on October 29. OnePlus has rescheduled its date from October 30. This is because Apple is also expected to host its big iPad Pro and Mac event on October 30. So in an attempt to avoid the collision and announcing the OnePlus 6T under Apple’s shadow, the company moved the date a day earlier. Read more details on it here.
OnePlus 6T is based on the design of the current OnePlus 6. However, it is bringing an in-display fingerprint sensor and a tiny notch. Stick around for the full coverage of the event. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
