OnePlus 5G phone to be announced in Q2 2019

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has announced that it will unveil its first 5G phone in Q2 2019.

The company, which rose to popularity in part because it brought affordable flagship phones to worldwide markets at affordable prices, has shared an image of the device prototype with USA Today that the company will also be showing off at MWC in a few days.

Per USA Today, the OnePlus phone also won't be available in the US - at least at launch.

OnePlus says that world's first 5G tweet was sent by Pete Lau via connecting the prototype device to a 5G Non-standalone Network.

While availability for the company's first device won't extend to the United States immediately, OnePlus is nevertheless already hinting at future 5G devices coming to the USA as the technology improves and compatibility between 5G networks gets better.

"5G is a revolution which can bring change far beyond (for) the technology industry, for people everywhere, for everything from gaming through to mixed reality apps, healthcare, and much more". We have worked for a long time to develop 5G innovations and are happy to work with partners like Elisa to create something special. We want to offer our customers the best possible devices to enjoy the benefits of 5G. The statement comes as OnePlus prepares to showcase its 5G prototype phone during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 which kicks off from February 25. "OnePlus is a good and natural partner to us, they offer an excellent operating system and devices that are for example great for gaming", said Elisa director Antti Ihanainen.

The device, as mentioned before, will be a standalone smartphone and not the OnePlus 7. The company is expected to price its 5G smartphone between $200 to $300.
