5G’s entry into our lives is accelerating. Recently, the first 5G-powered phone went on sale in China. According to reports today, Sprint and OnePlus will bring a 5G phone to the US. The details of this device have been shown today at TENAA.
The device is identical to the OnePlus 7 in design and can be sold as OnePlus 7T in the Chinese market. According to TENAA, OnePlus 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 855+ processor.
There is no information about the other features of this device and the date of introduction. However, it is expected to be announced very soon.
