OnePlus may reveal a gaming-focused 5G smartphone prototype at MWC

According to a report by XDA Developers, OnePlus will bring its 5G smartphone prototype to this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

A OnePlus 6T phone is pictured during a launch event for the new OnePlus 6T in the Manhattan borough of New York, New York, U.S., October 29, 2018.

OnePlus has also stated that its 5G phone will launch in the first half of 2019.

OnePlus says that MWC visitors will be invited to "communicate with [their] community over a 5G network", though it's not clear what that entails. The device could either be OnePlus 7 or the company's first 5G enable smartphone; as it has already been established that OnePlus 7 will not be a 5G enabled device.

He has proven time and time again that he'll be there, wide open and 15 yards down the field when you need him the most. She asked if he wanted to say goodbye to his facial hair, and Edelman said, "I love you, beard".

The fact that the handset will be at Qualcomm's stand is no great surprise. OnePlus will have a presence at the Qualcomm booth during the MWC, and there it'll show its "5G prototype".

Interestingly, the statement makes it seem like OnePlus is more interested in showing off the capabilities of 5G rather than the handset itself.

The most exciting feature that OnePlus 7 is said to feature is support for 5G technology. Lau has confirmed that it won't be the OnePlus 7.

There's no word yet on United Kingdom pricing, but as the OnePlus 6T starts at £499, we can expect the as-yet-unnamed handset to fetch around £599. It is expected that this device will target the gaming audience as it will be a Gaming-Oriented phone which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and an X50 Modem. However, 5G will no doubt roll out quicker in markets such as Europe and North America than in India, and OnePlus likely want to have its devices ready for this well in advance.
