The phone will diverge from OnePlus' main family of flagship phones, which includes the OnePlus 6T, and will be one of the first previews many will get to see of a 5G phone.

The showdown of several smartphone OEM's will happen at this year's MWC 2019 trade show, with OnePlus being one of the entrants. And today the brand has confirmed that the two are directly related.

Connect with the OnePlus Community over 5G OnePlus, at Qualcomm's booth (Hall 3 Stand 3E10), invites all to connect and communicate with our community over a 5G network. Since OnePlus is teasing the gaming experience, we assume that this smartphone will have quite some power to impress the audience, perhaps, OnePlus next flagship will come with a certain focus in the gaming industry. However, OnePlus' close partnership with Qualcomm means the Snapdragon 855 will be included on the inside along with the Snapdragon X50 modem which will grant 5G capabilities.

The OnePlus 5G handset is expected to debut sometime in May alongside the OnePlus 7. Thanks to an early announcement from OnePlus, we know the Chinese company will be showing off a 5G prototype handset at the show.
