Smartphone manufacturers will start delivering their 5G-compatible phones early next year once mobile carriers enable their commercial 5G networks. OnePlus will be launching a 5G phone as well early next year and a new report claims that it would be $100 more expensive than the OnePlus 6T.

The OnePlus 6T was recently launched by the company. It starts at $549. OnePlus has said that its first 5G phone won’t be the OnePlus 7 so it may be an entirely different device. Reports suggest that it will be based on the Snapdragon 8150 processor with the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem.

The OnePlus 7 is actually expected to be a 4G device. It may also get a price bump next year but it wouldn’t be the full $100 that we can expect for the 5G phone. OnePlus will likely start revealing details about it bit by bit in the first few months of the new year.

A new report claims that the unnamed OnePlus phone with 5G that’s set to arrive early next year is going to cost $650. That would make it $100 more than the base model of the OnePlus 6T. The price premium would be expected on a first-generation 5G smartphone, particularly considering the fact that 5G will be on the bleeding edge of technology in 2019.
