OnePlus is going to show off a 5G phone later this month

OnePlus 7 and the 5G ‘gaming phone

This time around, according to reports, OnePlus has confirmed that it's bringing a 5G smartphone to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 which is scheduled this month. OnePlus has now invited the media to experience the company's prototype 5G smartphone at Qualcomm's booth at the event.

OnePlus recently announced its "Connect with the OnePlus Community over 5G" event at the mobile tech show.

OnePlus has collaborated with European telecom carrier EE to be among the first brands to launch a 5G smartphone. Now, notice that the word "prototype" is in there, as the company is not planning to announce this smartphone at MWC 2019, but will rather show its prototype, just to showcase 5G in action, basically. However, 5G will no doubt roll out quicker in markets such as Europe and North America than in India, and OnePlus likely want to have its devices ready for this well in advance. "OnePlus emerged as the leader (USD 500-700) on the back of the OnePlus 6 and the newly launched OnePlus 6T".

Fifth Pebble Beach victory makes Mickelson's day
Open will be at Pebble Beach this year but Phil Mickelson does not think winning there on Monday will aid his Grand Slam chances. Both Mickelson and Casey will be playing in this week's Genesis Open , alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

OnePlus' 5G handset will be a high-end phone, no doubt about it, as it will ship with Qualcomm's flagship processor, and it will be quite expensive on top of that. It will run a Snapdragon 855 with a Qualcomm X50 modem, it will NOT be the OnePlus 7 and it is not expected to sell in large volumes.

The device is expected to arrive in the United Kingdom first on EE, as CNET reported back in December, as early as the end of May. Rumors say the highest-end variant of the Galaxy S10 lineup will feature 5G connectivity.

"We definitely have 5G planned for next year", Pei boasted, adding: "We will be the first, if not one of the first partners with Qualcomm to commercially launch 5G globally".
