OnePlus 7 could support 5G and be sold by United States carriers

OnePlus smartphones are already available to buy in the USA, but only SIM-free and directly through OnePlus' online store.

Even major smartphone producers like Apple and Huawei are said to be working on 5G-ready devices to take advantage of the next-gen technology. If OnePlus can strike a deal to get on one, say AT&T or Verizon, things would be looking pretty good. Once OnePlus gets a deal with US carriers, consumers can get its devices with flexible payment plans, which could entice more people to switch to OnePlus smartphones. Lau said that OnePlus might be one of the first 5G mobile phone makers in the world thanks to OnePlus's relationship with Qualcomm, and the launch will sync up with the first year of 5G availability in America.

While talking with PC Mag this week, during the Mobile World Congress Shanghai, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau said that the company's already "working with U.S. carriers" as it's also planning to launch a 5G smartphone sometime next year. Pete Lau says they are at present working with U.S. bearers and in spite of the fact that he didn't specify a particular transporter in front of an audience, they are trusting that some arrangement can be worked out when the organization dispatches the gadget.

He did not specify which OnePlus model will be the first to launch with 5G support.

Early in the year, we'd heard that OnePlus was "investigating" potential deals that could be struck with United States carriers.

OnePlus traditionally launches a T variant of their flagship around October or November every year, but if the company decides to skip it this year, it'll be interesting to see if OnePlus abandons the T brand devices completely or just carries forward the name for the next launch.

However, Lau does promise a "burdenless" experience with a commitment to no bloatware.

It's not been too long since OnePlus launched the OnePlus 6.
