Earlier this year lot of screenshots and announcements from OnePlus did showcase the power of 5G on a OnePlus smartphone. Some of it was leaked information, but now the company CEO Pete Lau has gone on record and confirmed that a new ‘Flagship’ smartphone by them will have 5G capability.
As always, OnePlus launches two series of smartphones each year. This year the Chinese company has already launched the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU. And now it is the turns of the ‘T’ models. The company is getting ready to launch the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro in mid-October. Some leaks have put the date as 15th October for the launch event. Sources close to Gadget Bridge have confirmed that the event will happen in USA and India at the same time. It will happen in the same manner as it happened for the OnePlus 7 Pro launch with events happening simultaneously in USA and India.
This time three versions of the smartphones are expected OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro (5G Ready), which should be the flagship model by the company. This is the phone Pete Lau has been talking about in various reports. Before this, we have seen Samsung launch 5G models of its flagship smartphones, too.
Not much is known about the OnePlus 7T or 7T pro. But whatever is known is good information. In all likelihood, the OnePlus 7T series will carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, the higher version could have the 855+ chipset inside with 5G. RAM options will start from 6GB and go up to 12GB. Storage for the top model will be maxed out at 512GB. Also, triple rear cameras will be seen on all models with a pop-up selfie camera.
With this, the company is expected to launch the OnePlus TV as well. Which the company has already spoken about in its blog post. They are planning to launch the OnePlus TV since there is a demand by OnePlus fans and the market for a good budget smart TV is growing. Although there is no confirmation of the TVs launch date, it should be around the same time the ‘T’ versions of OnePlus are launched. The TV is expected to support 4K resolution as well as run Android for TV. OnePlus TV will be launching in four sizes including 43-inches, 55-inches, 65-inches, and 75-inches. Bluetooth 5.0 support will also be seen in this smart TV.
