Information about the first OnePlus 5G smartphone, which, as we know, will not be the successor of the current OnePlus 6T, but opens a new line and continues to appear online. A new leak shows that OnePlus will continue to raise its smartphone prices.
Source Fudzilla, referring to people who are familiar with the situation, says the first OnePlus 5G smartphone will be sold for $ 650.

For the OnePlus 7 model, which is expected to replace the OnePlus 6T from the beginning of 2019, there is a version that is almost identical to the OnePlus 5G model, except for the older 4G cell standard. It is possible that OnePlus 7 will also accept the SoC Snapdragon 8150, but with the older Snapdragon X24 and not the new Snapdragon X50 5G NR.
In addition to OnePlus, 5G smartphones are preparing other major smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, Honor, and Lenovo. All should be released in the first half of 2019. As far as Apple is concerned, it is expected that iPhone smartphones will support only 5G in 2020.
