Chinese smart phone maker OnePlus has developed its brand by offering powerful phones at lower costs than similar rivals from Apple, Google or Samsung.
Proud to offer the latest specifications, with the 5G race, the company expects to be among the first group of manufacturers with a 5G device in the second quarter of the year.
Unfortunately, that phone will not be launched in the US. UU
The phone, of which OnePlus will present a prototype at the trade show of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, will be launched for the first time on the airline EE of the United Kingdom and the Finnish airline Elisa during the second quarter of the year.

OnePlus shared an image of the prototype of the device that will show with USA TODAY. Wrapped in a protective case, you can not see much about the device, but it will run the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and use the company’s X50 modem.
That’s the same fast processor that Samsung is using in its new Galaxy S10 line.
“It’s still too early for 5G, and we want to take the opportunity to raise awareness, especially within the OnePlus community, but not just limit ourselves to the OnePlus community, as we can expect with 5G,” founder and CEO of OnePlus Pete Lau He said through a translator in an interview with USA TODAY.
It remains to be seen how consumers will take advantage of the speed and latency improvements that 5G will offer, but Lau is optimistic about the network’s potential impact of downloading powerful processing to a server in the cloud, especially when it comes to gaming.
The company will be showing the game “Ace Combat 7” to highlight the potential of the 5G device for games and computing when “the vast majority of computing is done at the cloud level instead of on the device.”
