The tech giant is working to release a 5G phone with the U.S. carrier Verizon in the first half of 2019, as well as two other 5G phones with AT&T. Today the Chinese company confirmed that its MWC event is directly related with the 5G OnePlus handset.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed this during an interview with CNET, where he also spoke out about the smartphones' price-tag.
As for the price of this OnePlus 5G phone is concerned, it is expected that this phone will hardly range between $200 to $300. Reports suggest that at the MWC event OnePlus will just showcase the 5G phone and will officially launch the device later in the year.
OnePlus is reportedly planning to release the new smartphone by the end of May this year, through the United Kingdom carrier EE, CNET reported. There's no one more suitable than OnePlus to make a 5G smartphone.

Since we are talking about OnePlus 7's highlight features, we need to note that the internet has been buzzing with rumors and speculations in anticipation for OnePlus 7 to be officially announced.
The smartphone is now available for general sales across all channels including OnePlus.in, Amazon.in and Reliance Digital, Croma outlets and all OnePlus exclusive offline stores.
The device is expected to arrive in the United Kingdom first on EE, as CNET reported back in December, as early as the end of May. It is fully possible the company may showcase a 5G variant of the OnePlus 6T like how other manufacturers are doing now.
"We definitely have 5G planned for next year", Pei boasted, adding: "We will be the first, if not one of the first partners with Qualcomm to commercially launch 5G globally". The company is well known for the relatively short life cycles of its products, with improved versions launching roughly twice a year.
