OnePlus is determined to be the driving force behind 5G – but that does not mean you can not buy OneGus 7G in 2019.
OnePlus boss Pete Lau confirmed to TechRadar The company plans to release a 4G variant of its phone along with the 5G version for those who do not want support for next-generation Internet connectivity.
Lau told TechRadar at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit 2018: "Because 5G will be very, for a small, unique helping of enthusiasts, we have a 4G product that is developed and available in parallel."
The price of the handset is Lau said, "My prediction is that the cost of the 5G device will be between $ 200 and $ 300, which is not necessarily a problem for our users, since [5G] that is what they are looking for.
"We never set out to make a product cheaper to be cheaper. It was very much a transition of the unique business model. "1
" Due to the offer, many may view the existing OnePlus flagship as a much cheaper price compared to other flagships.
The 4G version of the next phone, along with the more expensive 5G mobile phone, will allow the company to stay competitive and also provide the next-generation Internet connection for those who want it.
Lau firmly believes in it 5G's innovation is expected by the supporters of the brand, and that's why the brand is driving its mission to sell a 5G phone.
"From the perspective of OnePlus community users, this is very something that They want to pick up as early as possible. Everyone sees it as something that's annoying, and they want the technology and a better understanding of how it can be used, "said Lau. 19659010] Why OnePlus?
" There is no brand that lends itself to hard and early to dive into the 5G space as OnePlus. It's hard to know if other brands have a user base looking for a 5G device early on, it's pretty clear. "
OnePlus has announced that it is launching the first 5G phone in Europe, with a special partnership with EE in the UK, with no specific news for the US or a global launch, and this is because the company has not yet decided in other countries.
"We have no set plan, and that's something that depends a lot on the carrier network and carrier status. 5G is a very important strategic direction for us and we believe that we can do a lot in this area. Therefore, we will discuss this as a strategy with more carriers to see what can be realized.
Lau could not confirm the name or date of publication for the company's first 5G phone, but given that it will be the first in the European market, this is probably the company's next phone Case is, this could be the OnePlus 7.
A 4G version of the OnePlus 7 makes sense, and the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset – which is discontinued – offers many upgrades This is the flagship's next flagship Company that can be used without using the 5G features.
Lau could not confirm any other features that we'll see on the upcoming phone, but he's excited about the further upgrades that are open. Use the Snapdragon 855.
"Improving the camera on the front of AI processing, and what's possible there is what's most exciting to me," Lau said.
"It's very strong on the AI front, so the [Snapdragon 855] will have many exciting opportunities.
Gaming is another area of the phone to be upgraded with the Snapdragon 855. The company has an enhanced elite gaming mode that allows for better graphics as well as high graphics capabilities Multiplayer games with 5G  These upgrades, however, have not encouraged the company to explore the idea of a dedicated gaming phone.
Instead, OnePlus wants to develop a suitable flagship suitable for high-end gaming, but no special product is the Razer Phone 2 or The Asus ROG Phone.
"We will continue to have a very focused central focus on performance and a quick and smooth experience. Therefore, we will not create a device that was specifically designed as a gaming device.
"We will focus on creating devices that are considered excellent and comfortable for playing, but we also want them to be very good everyday drivers, which is what we see as the key to our user base."
Still on Smartphones
The push towards 5G is an important development for the Internet of Things – devices that are like smart appliances connected to the Internet or smart speakers.
Just because OnePlus progresses in the 5G space does not mean the company will expand into a company that makes many devices for your entire home.
"We will continue to focus on what we do." I've always focused on that – and that's a great smartphone flagship. However, we will closely monitor the implications of 5G and its importance for the Internet of Things.
"We'll focus on what we do best, but follow closely and see if there's any potential for creating a higher value for the user who uses devices that are responsible for Internet life on the Internet This does not mean that the company has no interest. The IoT as a whole simply does not want to create many devices by itself. Instead, the company sees something else that puts no pressure on the company to develop other products.
"For us and if we move forward, we'd rather go for an op platform where other devices can communicate and connect to the platform and have such an ecosystem instead of building a lot of things themselves."
The only device that the company is currently working on could fit into this smart living space is the previously announced OnePlus TV. It was already announced in September 2018, and the company has not come much closer to being published since its inception, but it's still something the company intends to do.
Lau said, "[OnePlus TV] is in the exploration phase. In the announcement, I went back and talked to the team and said," OK, let's focus on the product. Do not let us distract from other things and I will not pressure you. "
" It will get the right product. [The team] have a very aggressive plan that they have set for themselves, but in my view, I do not want them to be overly aggressive, but want them to get the product right. "
