5G is realistically some time away from a global roll-out. However, 5G will no doubt roll out quicker in markets such as Europe and North America than in India, and OnePlus likely want to have its devices ready for this well in advance. Meanwhile, as far as India is concerned, even if devices launching in the country are 5G-enabled smartphones, it s unlikely that our network operators will be ready for it till much later.

“OnePlus, at Qualcomm s booth (Hall 3 Stand 3E10), invites all to connect and communicate with our community over a 5G network. Attendees will also be able to experience the capabilities of 5G gaming on a OnePlus 5G prototype. Keep an eye out for the limited-edition Qualcomm x OnePlus pin badge, only available at the OnePlus stand.” The company said, as per the XDA report.

In addition to this, at Qualcomm Tech Summit 2018 OnePlus claimed that it will be among the first smartphone makers to bring a 5G-enabled smartphone in the European Market. The company has teamed up with EE, a European telecom operator.
