Several years have passed since OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 7T Pro and One Plus 7T Pro McLaren Edition in London during an exclusive launch event.
It is interesting to note that the 7T lineup relies on 4G, but OnePlus has also released a 5G-capable version of the device in May 2019. While 5G has started to become available in some places in the world it seems that OnePlus want to wait for a little more as the new standard becomes more popular.
OnePlus will start to focus more on 5G devices in 2020, according to some statements which were made by the CEO of the company at the OnePlus 7T Pro launch event. As more manufacturers will embrace the new standard it is likely that the competition will be considerably stronger next year.
At this point, OnePlus plans to evaluate the potential success of 5G devices in several regions, since there is no point to release a device if there is no way to use one of the key features. While 5G appears to become a trend 5G is not available in a large number of countries, including India, which is one of the biggest smartphone markets in the world.
The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G was released this year as an exclusive for a network operator in the UK, and the rest of the countries received the 4G models. During the conversation, the CEO mentioned that a second 5G device made by OnePlus would be released by the end of 2019.
Many fans are happy that OnePlus collaborated with McLaren for a new limited release, as the looks of the device have been inspired by the McLaren Speedtail, one of the most impressive supercars released on the market. The signature protective case of the device includes carbon fiber and Alcantara, the same material which can be found in the interior of McLaren sports cars. It is thought that collaboration could continue in the future.
