It is also important to note that, the company is most likely to use a Qualcomm chipset on the OnePlus 7, as Qualcomm has already demonstrated the 5G model and has also hinted that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is likely to have a 5G modem. OnePlus is already in talks with various United States telecom carriers to make the 5G OnePlus phone a reality.

A 5G-capable OnePlus 7 smartphone would be a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S10.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is gearing up to release one of the first 5G-enabled mobile devices next year, and the device will reportedly be launched via a carrier in the U.S. OnePlus usually launches two flagship phones for a year and the company has already announced the OnePlus 6 which is likely be succeded by the OnePlus 6T. But OnePlus also wants to position itself as quickly as possible on another market: the 5G.

At the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, Lau said that they are looking at producing a 5G smartphone by next year, aiming to become one of the first OEMs to do so.

Edinson Cavani outshines Ronaldo but injury could dampen Uruguay's long-term hopes
Portugal hasn't reached the World Cup quarterfinals since 2006, when a young Ronaldo led the team to the semifinals. With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it tough for France and should not be written off.

He did not speak anything about launching a 5G smartphone in India.

OnePlus is often praised for its affordable smartphones that offer nearly flagship-level specifications but customers have always had to pay full price for them because the company had no carrier relationships which meant that the handsets couldn't be purchased on monthly plans. Sales of OnePlus devices recently started at carriers in Europe, and with the U.S. market so much more reliant on carrier sales, it only makes sense to make a push here. But Lau's keynote address at the trade summit in China, where he was one of the guest speakers at the Global Device Summit panel discussion, certainly gets the ball rolling. This year's iPhone X successors aren't supposed to pack 5G support, because that's not how Apple does things.

It is unknown which device Pete was talking about.
