OnePlus 5G prototype to debut at Mobile World Congress

OnePlus to show off 5G phone prototype at MWC 2019

The company had said that the event is for the networking goal only and that it does not intend to launch any new product.

OnePlus has been playing with teasers for its first 5G smartphone for quite some time. Last year, it was announced by the company during Qualcomm's event that OnePlus will be among the first smartphone manufacturers to launch a 5G-compatible smartphone.

We're now less than two weeks away from MWC 2019, and almost all major smartphone makers will make their presence felt. With MWC 2019 just around the corner, we can expect the 5G prototype to be shown to a lot of people at the trade show.

The OnePlus 5G handset is expected to debut sometime in May alongside the OnePlus 7.

"OnePlus, at Qualcomm's booth (Hall 3 Stand 3E10), invites all to connect and communicate with our community over a 5G network", the company said of the show.

With major cellphone makers like Samsung, Apple, and Google lagging behind in the 5G-ready smartphone race, it seems OnePlus is planning to pick up the slack.

The fact that the handset will be at Qualcomm's stand is no great surprise. However, OnePlus' close partnership with Qualcomm means the Snapdragon 855 will be included on the inside along with the Snapdragon X50 modem which will grant 5G capabilities.

The still-unnamed 5G phone will most likely be more expensive than the OnePlus 7 and will be restricted to markets in which suitable networks are available.
