OnePlus is about to join the league of gaming-based smartphone and the brand may likely showcase its first patent in the upcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona
While major smartphone brands like the Huawei Honor, Razer phone 2, among others had been adopting the gaming OS, OnePlus may be planning to follow suit in its future productions. Furthermore, while the patent does not only tease of a gaming OS, it is likely to come along with the highly anticipated 5G network.
Talking about the 5G network, Unlike OnePlus who has finally decided to take the bold step, major brands like the Apple, Samsung, and Google are still lagging behind, even tho several other mobile brands have hinted the tech community of their potential towards achieving a 5G-enabled smartphone. According to XDA Developers, the company will demo its first-ever prototype 5G phone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year. The device could be a gaming-oriented phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and an X50 modem.
According to OnePlus’ announcement, attendees at the MWC event may be opportune to test the phone’s gaming performance in person if they stop by the company’s booth. OnePlus says that MWC visitors will be invited to “communicate with [their] community over a 5G network,” though it’s not clear what that entails. Also, there is no guarantee on what to expect of the new device yet, other than the little that has been stated earlier. However, just like other gaming devices, one can expect massive RAM, and ROM, which is basically what makes a phone sound for gaming purpose.
However, given that it will reportedly cost between $200 and $300 more than OnePlus’ usual smartphones, we can probably expect a fairly comprehensive list of features. Wireless charging will likely be available, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader. Speculation aside, we won’t have to wait long to see what OnePlus truly has in store – MWC kicks off on February 25.
