- The release confirmed by OnePlus for 5G smartphone.
- CEO Pete Lau speaks about the release.
- Mid October is probably when we will be seeing this new device.
There would be no surprise to see a “OnePlus 7T” debut sometime later this year after doing it with its past several generations. CEO Pete Lau confirmed during a call that a new device is coming later in 2019, possibly being a OnePlus 7T with 5G.
While speaking with the Financial Times (via XDA), it was confirmed by Lau that this new 5G device would be coming before the end of this year.
According to the recent tips, mid-October is probably when we will be seeing this new device.
In an interview, Lau said that he believes any smartphone released in 2019 must include 5G connectivity to be considered a “flagship”. He expects 5G to be more widespread in 2020. And to that extent, he said this new device will be compatible with more 5G networks around the globe.
A recent announcement was made from Sprint. The carrier confirmed a deal with OnePlus to carry a 5G device. And it is logical to think that that mysterious device would be this “OnePlus 7T 5G”.
OnePlus made a great impact in the premium smartphone segment with its OnePlus 7 series phones earlier this year.
But, there is not much else we know about it at this time. The name is simply an assumption at this point, and it is unclear if OnePlus would also release a follow- up to the standard OnePlus 7 that debuted in some markets.
Other improvements beyond the wider reach of 5G could end up being the Snapdragon 855+ chip, but anything is on the table at this point.

A month late from their late OnePlus 6 release. The reason is that a 5G supporting phone like an upgraded version of OnePlus 6t with SD855 would be planned before OP7.
What confirms is a recent leak of some pictures from cont”.
