Conspicuously absent from last week’s OnePlus 7T Pro announcement was any mention of a new 5G device from OnePlus. The company announced two versions of the 7T Pro (including a new McLaren Edition of the device) as well as European pricing and release information for the 7T, but all three of these phones were 4G LTE only, with no sign of a 5G follow-up to the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G that the company released earlier this year.

It was an odd omission, especially since OnePlus was so eager to release a 5G device so early in the technology’s lifecycle. In October 2018, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau talked about wanting OnePlus to release the first 5G device in Europe, and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G was subsequently one of the first 5G devices to launch in the UK alongside the Samsung S10 5G. However, while Samsung has gone on two announce two more 5G devices — the Galaxy Note 10 5G and midrange A90 5G — OnePlus doesn’t seem as interested in a follow-up, despite rumors that the company was going to announce a 5G McLaren Edition of the new phone.

OnePlus CEO teases 7T Pro McLaren Edition on the way

  OnePlus CEO teases 7T Pro McLaren Edition on the way The company introduced the McLaren Edition with the 6T last year, and it was basically a 6T with maxed out specs and a black-and-orange design. There was one big new feature, however: super-fast 30 W charging. ???? — Pete Lau (@PeteLau) Given the company already includes a 30W charger with the regular 7T now, the company will have to find some other way of differentiating itself from the lower-end configurations. One option is to go with even faster charging; OnePlus’ parent company Oppo recently revealed 65W charging technology, and the two brands tend to share components.

OnePlus has announced the 7 T smartphone, but The company officially revealed the "T" version of the standard device in the OnePlus 7 T on 26 September, but we're still expecting the OnePlus 7 T Pro . There ' s also an event on 10 October in London where the OnePlus 7 T Pro is expected to be

OnePlus CEO see no need to launch OnePlus 7 T Pro 5 G version alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro 5 G , Since Last week were unveiled the OnePlus 7 T Pro and its McLaren Edition. But the company has not unveiled a successor to the OnePlus 7 Pro 5 G . An absence that is now explained by Pete Lau.

Waiting for the time to be right

Speaking to a small group of publications, including The Verge, at the OnePlus 7T Pro’s announcement event in London last week, Lau suggested (via a translator) that the company simply hasn’t seen enough of an opportunity to launch a second 5G device. “It’s not related to a Pro series or T-series or another device that certainly must have 5G,” the CEO said. “It’s more looking at what are the circumstances and what’s a suitable opportunity to build a 5G device.”

OnePlus also undoubtedly benefited from being one of the first companies to have a device ready for the launch of 5G in markets, including the UK, which was primed to benefit from any halo effect that the launch of the network may have had. Now that three of the UK’s four operators have launched their 5G networks, that same halo effect is unlikely to apply again for a second device.

The handset will also feature a new user interface to accommodate the "radically different form factor," said Rubin, the creator of Google's Android operating system.

Now, however, OnePlus has confirmed that the new 5 G device will be an iteration of the OnePlus 7 Pro , which runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 The 5 G version was not on display at MWC because designing a 5 G smartphone is not like designing a 4G one, OnePlus explained . On a 4G device, the

The just-announced OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro aren't capable of connecting to a 5 G network, but the company has revealed a version of the handsets that will make use of next-gen connectivity tech. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5 G has been confirmed, but there has yet to be a clear release date or pricing

In contrast to the lack of any 5G announcements last week, one of the 7 Pro’s other flagship features, its 90Hz screen, has not only returned for the 7T Pro, but it’s actually trickled down the OnePlus lineup into the OnePlus 7T, the lower-priced sibling to the Pro.

Lau said that the focus of the 7 Pro was on “pushing the boundaries” of tech. “If the tech is received well,” he said, “our intention has been to bring it to the wider series, so to the future series of devices.” The OnePlus 7 Pro’s 90Hz screen, which we called the “star of the show” in our review, made the cut, but its 5G variant did not.

Although Lau admitted that 5G is likely to be a key flagship trend for next year, he refused to be drawn on whether we’d see 5G included in the standard version of the OnePlus 8. The reason, he said, was because, at this point, it’s difficult to know whether 5G networks will exist in enough countries to make including 5G on a flagship device worthwhile. In India, which is a key territory for OnePlus, 5G might not be available next year, Lau explained.

OnePlus was successful in its attempts to be among the first companies to release a 5G phone, but the lack of a follow-up device at last week’s event showed that it’s being much more cautious about its second. After all, you only get to benefit from the excitement of releasing your first 5G device once.
