  • OnePlus 7 and the 5G ‘gaming phone

The tech giant is working to release a 5G phone with the United States carrier Verizon in the first half of 2019, as well as two other 5G phones with AT&T. OnePlus has now invited the media to experience the company's prototype 5G smartphone at Qualcomm's booth at the event.

OnePlus will be present at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) at Barcelona, to showcase its new product. The invitation curiously emphasises "5G gaming" as an example of what it will show off, which could indicate that the actual 5G phone that launches later this year might be aimed at gamers. Today the Chinese company confirmed that its MWC event is directly related with the 5G OnePlus handset. It is fully possible the company may showcase a 5G variant of the OnePlus 6T like how other manufacturers are doing now.

The still-unnamed 5G phone will most likely be more expensive than the OnePlus 7 and will be restricted to markets in which suitable networks are available. Even the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7T are said to be powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset but will be based on X24 modem. Additionally, the popular brand revealed that attendees will be able to "experience the capabilities of 5G gaming" through one of its latest "OnePlus 5G Prototypes".

OnePlus says that MWC visitors will be invited to "communicate with [their] community over a 5G network", though it's not clear what that entails. At CES 2019 in January, Samsung showed off its own 5G phone under glass.
