OnePlus now sells smartphones without any carrier agreement in the US.
It won't be too long until more and more carriers start turning on their 5G networks, so it only makes sense to assume that plenty of Android vendors will launch 5G phones soon. If OnePlus can strike a deal to get on one, say AT&T or Verizon, things would be looking pretty good.
OnePlus is joining the list of manufacturers who are planning to release 5G-compatible smartphones next year.

Lau also revealed to PC Mag that the company is working with Qualcomm to develop one of the first 5G-enabled phones and plans to launch it in the USA in 2019, the same year 5G services are switched on.More news: Canada hits back at U.S. with own tariffs
Interestingly, Lau says that his company is going to keep the OnePlus experience intact, which means that future OnePlus smartphones sold by a US carrier won't have bloatware. Pete Lau says they are at present working with United States bearers and in spite of the fact that he didn't specify a particular transporter in front of an audience, they are trusting that some arrangement can be worked out when the organization dispatches the gadget. The firm is apparently working with USA carriers and Qualcomm to make its first 5G phone, which will come out at around the same time as 5G being available for the first time in the United States.
He did not speak anything about launching a 5G smartphone in India. OnePlus cooperation with colleagues from the American company Qualcomm suggests which processor will receive the device.
However, Lau does promise a "burdenless" experience with a commitment to no bloatware.
OnePlus has recently launched the OnePlus 6 in multiple markets across the world.
While talking at MWC Shanghai today, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has uncovered that his organization may dispatch a 5G-prepared cell phone in 2019.
