Since its inception, OnePlus has always been attentive to users’ needs and demands. As a result, the company designed devices that far exceeded users’ expectations. One such thing in demand right now is the 5G! Not many knows the fact that OnePlus began its 5G research as early as 2016; however, the company couldn’t mass produce due to several limitations.
Road to 5G!
Back in 2019, for the first time, OnePlus showcased its prototype smartphone powered by Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem and Qualcomm RF Front-End solutions in MWC.
Further, the company also simulated a futuristic setting of 5G cloud gaming where players would only need a smartphone and a gamepad. For the uninitiated, OnePlus launched its first 5G phone OnePlus 7 Pro in the UK (with EE) and US (with Sprint) last year.
Fast-forwarding to 2020, OnePlus is all set to launch its OnePlus 8 series of smartphones with 5G support on the rumored launch date, which is April 15th. OnePlus founder and CEO, Pete Lau, confirmed it by tweeting a teaser saying, “All in 5G.”
