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 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.
The company recently launched its latest flagship device - the OnePlus 6T, powered by the Snapdragon 845.
"We are proud to work with OnePlus to continue to bring breakthrough mobile experiences to consumers," said Alex Katouzian, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Samsung, which has already showcased its 5G device, is also planning to launch the device in the first half of 2019.
