OnePlus to show off 5G phone prototype at MWC 2019

The company has made it clear that the device that will be showcased during MWC 2019 will not be a finished product and those who show up at the company's booth will be able to try the prototype.

While this might not be the finished OnePlus 7, it'll be showing us just what that phone will be capable of doing if it does end up launching with 5G.

The phone will diverge from OnePlus' main family of flagship phones, which includes the OnePlus 6T, and will be one of the first previews many will get to see of a 5G phone.

The onboard Qualcomm X50 5G modem on the upcoming smartphone would mean the gamers will experience fewer frame drops while playing graphics-intensive games such as PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. Also, being one of the first to market with a 5G phone is not about bragging rights, but about allowing it to learn and iterate for future products.

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. It is also expected to be released in the United Kingdom in May of this year. OnePlus exec also confirmed that the company plans to introduce two flagships, so the OnePlus 7 will be announced as well, while the company's 5G flagship will be a separate phone entirely, so you don't have to worry about spending all too much on OnePlus' flagship this year.

The announcement of the 5G demonstration at MWC was posted by XDA Developers.
