Along with the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus also introduced the OnePlus 7 5G at its event, after the company showcased a 5G prototype smartphone at the MWC in February. As the company had already announced last year, it will be available exclusively with EE in the UK and Elisa in Finland. The company has not announced any other partnerships and did not reveal the price or the availability of the phone in these markets.
It has similar specifications as the OnePlus 7, including the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, but this also includes the Snapdragon X50 5G modem and Qualcomm RF Front-End solutions for the 5G experience.
EE said that OnePlus 7 Pro 5G customers will be able to access EE’s 5G network from launch in the UK’s four capital cities – London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast – plus Birmingham and Manchester. EE will then be rolling it out through 2019 across the busiest parts of ten more UK cities: Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol – where it can make the biggest difference to people who live, work or travel through the busiest areas.
As part of the exclusive EE and OnePlus partnership, 100 of the first EE OnePlus 6T customers will be upgraded to a new OnePlus 7 Pro 5G and 5G plan – free of charge, before launch.
