  • Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 855 Processor for 5G Phones

When EE announced the official launch of 5G last month they teased that more information about 5G ready smartphones would be made public soon and now there's some big news about a partnership with OnePlus.

Details of the new phone are slim. Qualcomm has said that the chipset will include an all-new computer vision ISP along with a new, 4th generation multi-core AI Engine, which draws together the Adreno, Kryo, and Hexagon components of the SoC.

In other words, we still have far more questions that answers, but with a stage presence at Qualcomm's keynote and plans to beat everyone else to 5G in Europe, it's clear that OnePlus is setting itself up to have a huge 2019. OnePlus is no stranger to it, either. It also detailed the rollout of its 5G services in 16 United Kingdom cities, including London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham, and Manchester.

As for the OnePlus 5G phone, it'll likely be the OnePlus 7.

OnePlus had already revealed its intentions to bring a 5G device to market in the first half of 2019, but this was the first time CEO Pete Lau had nailed down any specifics about the device.

As well as the six launch cities, through 2019 EE will also be introducing 5G across the busiest parts of ten more United Kingdom cities: Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol. They'll be joined by additional cities over the course of the year.

As for when, exactly, OnePlus's 5G phone launch will happen, that hasn't been pinned down. We should expect improved power efficiency and performance, with more details on that arriving in the coming days at the Snapdragon Tech Summit.

"Adding 5G to the UK's number one 4G network will increase reliability, increase speeds, and keep our customers connected where they need it most".
