OnePlus to not launch 5G flagship in India

OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition Summary

This year OnePlus has brought OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. OnePlus has pushed the 90Hz screen refresh rate with all these smartphones.

What is the plan for next year and What is the tech trend OnePlus will be working on in 2020?

The answer to this question is given by the CEO and Founder of OnePlus, Pete Lau:

He confirmed that the OnePlus team is working on 5G as OnePlus has already launched a 5G phone under its Pro series, the OnePlus 7 Pro,  this year the company will try to push the 5G technology in smartphones even further. The company will bring more and more 5G smartphones next year in as many countries as possible.

Will OnePlus 5G smartphone come to India next year?

No, it will not, confirms OnePlus CEO Pete Lau in an interaction with the media after the launch of the OnePlus 7T Pro in London last week. “In India, there may not be 5G availability next year as a whole and we’ll have to see how things progress. So again, this has to go back to looking at the suitability for products in different regions,” Lau told the media.

Additionally, the OnePlus CEO said, “We launched the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G device in a few different countries,” Lau said, adding that OnePlus was looking at the ability to have the suitability of such a product in different countries. “It’s not related to a Pro series or T series or another device that must have 5G. Instead, we are looking at what are the circumstances and what’s the suitable opportunity to build a 5G device.”

As we reported earlier OnePlus has big plans for its TVs in India. OnePlus will launch more TVs in India next year, Pete Lau confirmed to India Today Tech in an interaction after the launch of OnePlus 7T Pro in London. OnePlus launched its first TVs — OnePlus TV Q1 and OnePlus TV Q1 Pro — in India last month. Lau also confirms that the company will stick to premium segment TVs and not launch affordable TVs in India.
