OnePlus is reportedly working on its next 5G smartphone, which will be launched by the end of this year. This is around the same time that the next OnePlus flagship, most likely the OnePlus 7T series of smartphones, is expected to make an appearance.
OnePlus just confirmed the name of its TV which will be simply called ‘OnePlus TV’. The company also announced it will launch a 5G smartphone by the end of this year.
OnePlus 7T Pro Launch date
According to a recent leak, OnePlus 7T will launch on October 15. Although this isn’t official, the timeline for the launch is close to past OnePlus phones. Last year’s OnePlus 6T was launched in October, while OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 3T launched in the month of October.
OnePlus 7T Pro design
The smartphone has a bezel-less display with no notch or selfie camera cutout. A triple-camera setup was also spotted on the leaked OnePlus 7T Pro. The ‘T’ versions of OnePlus phone don’t bring much design changes. The improvements and upgrades usually happen under the hood. OnePlus 7T Pro could come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset.
OnePlus 5G smartphone
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau told that a new 5G smartphone will launch in Q4 (October-December) this year. This new OnePlus 5G phone will also be widely available, unlike the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
Being the next flagship, the upcoming OnePlus devices will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855, but there is not much clarity on how they will differ from the existing OnePlus 7 line-up. The new OnePlus flagships are likely to carry pop-up selfie camera and under-screen fingerprint sensor from the OnePlus 7 Pro.
After the success in India and China, OnePlus has been trying to expand to other markets, like the US, facing stiff competition from players like Apple, Samsung and Huawei.
