    OnePlus is closely working with Qualcomm with respect to 5G technology, and OnePlus has already tested out the technology in August 2018. Carl Pei has not mentioned the name of the smartphone. However, going by the OnePlus's nomenclature, the OnePlus 7 could be the first OnePlus smartphone to support 5G network.

    The OnePlus 7 is likely to feature the Snapdragon X50 5G modem with QTM052 mmWave antenna module to offer a wireless 5G network with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.

    In addition to OnePlus other brands like Xiaomi, HMD Global, Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola, Vivo, and Oppo has also confirmed to launch a 5G smartphone in the upcoming days with the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem.
