A One Plus 5G phone will be revealed in just a few weeks time

OnePlus to show off 5G phone prototype at MWC 2019

Not only do we expect carriers to roll out the next generation of high-speed mobile networks, we also anticipate a crop of new 5G phones that will work on said networks.

We're now less than two weeks away from MWC 2019, and almost all major smartphone makers will make their presence felt. Reports suggest that at the MWC event OnePlus will just showcase the 5G phone and will officially launch the device later in the year. OnePlus invites its MWC visitors at the company booth stating that, "communicate with [their] community over a 5G network".

Known for releasing slick, fast-performing smartphones that are not as fast in draining wallets, OnePlus is set to push boundaries farther as it intends to make available to the public a 5G prototype 'gaming phone, ' XDA Developers reported.

At CES 2019, Qualcomm had a handful of prototype handsets on its booth including one from OnePlus' parent company Oppo, labelled as the Find X 5G.

OnePlus is reportedly planning to release the new smartphone by the end of May this year, through the United Kingdom carrier EE, CNET reported.

There's no word yet on United Kingdom pricing, but as the OnePlus 6T starts at £499, we can expect the as-yet-unnamed handset to fetch around £599. Lau has confirmed that it won't be the OnePlus 7.

The most exciting feature that OnePlus 7 is said to feature is support for 5G technology. Other than OnePlus, Samsung is reportedly also planning to develop a 5G-capable phone. We do know that the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor by Qualcomm, and that it will include the company's X50 modem, both of which are required for 5G connectivity.
