The 5G revolution is about to get fully underway and there’s a radical new smartphone that will help consumers take advantage of these super fast speeds.
The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G has just been revealed at an event in London and EE has confirmed it will be stocking this device.
In fact, the network is boasting that it will be the only place to get the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
EE says that OnePlus 7 Pro 5G customers will be able to access EE’s 5G network from launch in the UK’s four capital cities – London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast – plus Birmingham and Manchester.
5G will then be rolling it out through 2019 across the busiest parts of ten more UK cities: Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.
As part of the exclusive EE and OnePlus partnership, 50 of the first EE OnePlus 6T customers will be upgraded to a new OnePlus 7 Pro 5G and 5G plan – free of charge, before launch – making them the UK’s first customers to experience the power of 5G.
The new OnePlus 7 Pro comes packed with an array of new features including a fully edge-to-edge AMOLED screen, pop-up selfie camera and a fast charging battery that can refill to 50 per cent in just 20 minutes.
There’s also a new triple rear camera which brings wide-angle shots to the phone and fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor tucked inside which makes it one of the fastest Android devices currently on the market.
Speaking about the news, Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “5G will provide a new era in connectivity on the move, giving customers the best mobile experience they’ve ever had, and opening up a whole new world of connected possibilities from AR to high definition video and gaming.
“We’re working with OnePlus, which – like EE – is a pioneer in its field, to exclusively offer the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G to our customers. Through our partnership, these customers will be there on the first steps of the UK’s amazing 5G journey.”
5G looks set to radically change the way we use our phones with average download load speeds expected to be in excess of 100Mbps.
This new network will also allow more people to get a more reliable signal at the same time which will help customers at busy train stations or where lots of phones are accessing data at the same time.
