Sprint’s 5G network will ‘soon’ get a OnePlus device

The only carrier OnePlus has managed to partner with in the US has been T-Mobile, but that’s soon going to change. For its 5G network, Sprint is going to carry a device from OnePlus in the near future, although details are scarce.



Sprint’s “True Mobile 5G network” is already available in some parts of some major US cities including AtlantaChicagoDallas-Fort WorthHouston, and Kansas City. Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. are also on the slate for the “coming weeks.”

The carrier already supports the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and LG V50 ThinQ 5G, with this new OnePlus 5G device being the latest option for Sprint customers. However, the actual device hasn’t been confirmed just yet.

The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is the obvious pick, but given the company’s trend of releasing two devices per year, a “OnePlus 7T Pro 5G” isn’t out of the question, even though we  hope that’s not the name.

Sprint says that “pricing and exact timing will be announced soon,” so things are a bit up in the air for this OnePlus device at the moment.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. and NEW YORKAug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced its fourth 5G device and first smartphone with OnePlus, a global mobile technology company. Device specifications, pricing and exact timing will be announced soon.

“We value OnePlus’ reputation for balancing high-end quality at a great value,” said Dow Draper, Sprint chief commercial officer. “This new smartphone gives Sprint customers another exciting option for accessing their True Mobile 5G experience.”

Sprint 5G is currently available in areas of AtlantaChicagoDallas-Fort WorthHouston and Kansas City, and the company expects to launch service in areas of Los AngelesNew YorkPhoenix and Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks. Sprint’s True Mobile 5G network will cover approximately 2,100 square miles and 11 million people total across all nine market launch areas, giving Sprint the largest initial 5G coverage footprint in the U.S.
