He also added that in the coming year, 5G will become more popular OnePlus' phones will be coming up with more 5G phones that will be compatible around the globe.
He said, “If you want to be a premium phone in 2020, you have to be equipped with 5G technology. We believe with the development of 5G technology next year we can have an (even) better performance. With the upcoming 5G era approaching, we are going to invest more.” While Lau didn’t reveal the name of the device that might be coming up as the new 5G device, some users also expect that he is hinting the ‘T’ upgrade to the OnePlus 7 series.
