One­plus plan­ning to re­lease first 5G smart­phone in first half of 2019

Oman Daily Observer - - SCITECH -

JOIN­ING the top play­ers hop­ing to launch a 5G smart­phone in 2019, Chi­nese hand­set maker One­plus has said that its first such com­mer­cial de­vice, which could re­lease in the first of next year, would be pow­ered by Qual­comm Snap­dragon 855 chipset.

One­plus will re­lease a com­mer­cial 5G smart­phone with car­rier net­work EE in UK in 2019, the com­pany’s CEO Pete Lau said last week at the Qual­comm Snap­dragon Tech­nol­ogy Sum­mit 2018 in Hawaii, US.

“One­plus only makes flag­ship smart­phones, and we be­lieve that the Snap­dragon 855 is the best and only choice. We are thrilled by its pow­er­ful per­for­mance and 5G ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” Pete Lau said at the event.

Lau told CNET that One­plus is ex­pect­ing to launch the 5G phone by the end of May this year.

Since its es­tab­lish­ment five years ago, One­plus has only made flag­ship smart­phones pow­ered by the Snap­dragon 8 Se­ries mo­bile plat­forms.

The com­pany re­cently launched its lat­est flag­ship de­vice — the One­plus 6T, pow­ered by the Snap­dragon 845. — IANS
