OnePlus will release a smartphone-compatible 5G

OnePlus Says It’ll Bring Phones to US Carriers and They’ll be Bloatware Free

5G phones may still be a distant reality, but OnePlus wants to be ahead in the race.

Firstly, it shows us that 5G devices and, naturally, networks are rapidly approaching, and as we explain in our guide to 5G, the benefits both will deliver will be huge. If OnePlus can strike a deal to get on one, say AT&T or Verizon, things would be looking pretty good.

As per the maintenance schedule, there will be 2 years of regular software updates from the release date of the phone (release dates of T variants would be considered), including new features, Android versions, Android security patches and bug fixes and an additional year of Android security patch updates every 2 months. Lau said that OnePlus might be one of the first 5G mobile phone makers in the world thanks to OnePlus's relationship with Qualcomm, and the launch will sync up with the first year of 5G availability in America.

Though his statement did not mention the name OnePlus 7 or the OnePlus 7T, it is clear by now that the Pete Lau is indeed talking about the next flagship smartphone from OnePlus and going by the style of nomenclature, the company is most likely to call its next flagship (probably after the launch of the OnePlus 6T) as the OnePlus 7. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, in a recent interview, revealed that the Chinese smartphone giant is already working with U.S. carriers to bring 5G connectivity to next year's OnePlus launch. That not only includes a 5G smartphone, but also potential partnerships with USA wireless carriers.

He did not speak anything about launching a 5G smartphone in India.

Early in the year, we'd heard that OnePlus was "investigating" potential deals that could be struck with U.S. carriers. Lau said that the company prioritizes speed and a bloatware-free experience.

OnePlus is often praised for its affordable smartphones that offer nearly flagship-level specifications but customers have always had to pay full price for them because the company had no carrier relationships which meant that the handsets couldn't be purchased on monthly plans. However, the possibility of the device being OnePlus 6T can not be ruled out entirely either, considering Lau, in an earlier interview, said that the OnePlus 6T may not launch in 2018 if there's a lack of adequate innovations to incorporate in it. 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).
