OnePlus to show off a 5G smartphone prototype at MWC 2019

OnePlus 7 and the 5G ‘gaming phone

The company had said that the event is for the networking goal only and that it does not intend to launch any new product. Last year, it was announced by the company during Qualcomm's event that OnePlus will be among the first smartphone manufacturers to launch a 5G-compatible smartphone. The company's CEO has already said it wants to offer 5G on a handset that'll cost less than £1,000 - something the big boys likely won't do.

OnePlus says that MWC visitors will be invited to "communicate with [their] community over a 5G network", though it's not clear what that entails. 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.

Based on OnePlus' own announcement, it sounds like MWC attendees will be given the opportunity to test the phone's gaming performance in person if they stop by the company's booth. "Keep an eye out for the limited-edition Qualcomm x OnePlus pin badge, only available at the OnePlus stand", OnePlus told XDA Developers in a statement.

Police receive redacted phone records from Jussie Smollett regarding reported attack
A spokesman said the records he sent "are not sufficient and do not meet the burden of a criminal investigation". Back in January, " Empire " actor Jussie Smollett was attacked in what Chicago police called a hate crime.

Currently, it's impossible to state the specifications of this upcoming handset, but considering OnePlus close bonds with Qualcomm, it seems reasonable to assume that the Snapdragon 855 will be included in the package alongside the Snapdragon X50 Modem in order to grant 5G network capabilities.

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.
