Sprint has announced a partnership with OnePlus to launch its first 5G smartphone with the firm. This will be the company’s fourth 5G device overall, following behind the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, HTC 5G Hub, and the LG V50.
Speaking about the partnership, Sprint’s chief commercial officer Dow Draper noted that it would allow for another option for customers to access an authentic 5G mobile experience. In a statement, he said:
“We value OnePlus’ reputation for balancing high-end quality at a great value. This new smartphone gives Sprint customers another exciting option for accessing their True Mobile 5G experience.”
Sprint’s 5G network is currently available in several cities across the United States, with 5G support mainly being limited to Kansas City, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta, and Chicago. However, the company has noted that it expects to expand this coverage in the coming months. It’s been suggested that the 5G network will soon be available in Washington, D.C., New York, Phoenix, and Los Angeles.
Should this be the case, this would make Sprint’s 5G network the largest in the country, covering 2,100 miles and offering 5G access to over 11 million people.
With all of that said, details of the Sprint OnePlus 5G smartphone are scarce, with both companies not yet commenting on when it will be available, which device model it will be, or what price points it will be available for.
