OnePlus pledges its 2020 phone line-up will be all 5G

OnePlus has announced that its upcoming smartphones for 2020 will all be 5G enabled.

The technology is still in its early stages in the UK but is fast being adopted in places like China and South Korea.

All of the UK’s networks have 5G coverage up and running and are offering price plans for those with 5G-capable devices.

Meanwhile, OnePlus has steadily been increasing the amount of tech in its phones, which have been well received by both consumers and the tech press.

‘This is a milestone both for OnePlus and our users. We’re proud to be among the first smartphone manufacturers to have full 5G line up for our next launch,’ said OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau. ‘OnePlus has achieved many firsts with 5G, and this time’s no exception.’

OnePlus says it began researching 5G as early as 2016 and now believes the tipping point has arrived where most users looking to upgrade will want to choose a 5G device.

‘We believe that following the dawn of the 5G era, the smartphone experience will go through a dramatic development,’ Lau said.

‘5G’s low latency and enhanced cloud services will undoubtedly help us achieve a truly interconnected experience, while also providing exciting developments in areas like gaming, which are vitally important for OnePlus’ tech-savvy users.’

The UK’s four largest mobile networks have all agreed a deal with the government to invest in new and existing phone masts to improve coverage in rural areas. The Shared Rural Network (SRN) will see EE, O2, Three and Vodafone work together to end poor mobile phone coverage.

The four networks will invest in new and existing phone masts, overseen by a jointly owned company called Digital Mobile Spectrum Limited, which they would all share.

The scheme will lead to increases in coverage in some areas by more than a third, the government said, with the biggest improvements in rural parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. The deal means network combined coverage will reach 95% of the UK by the end of 2025.
