While OnePlus devices traditionally feature the latest and newest Snapdragon processors, the honor of being the first in the market usually goes to Samsung, mostly with the Galaxy S series.
Lau did not explain what, exactly, this OnePlus smartphone would be. If it’s the first in the market with the newest SP processor, it means will be launched before the Samsung Galaxy S10, which is expected to appear in late February.
It would be too early to announce a new OnePlus phone, considering the OnePlus 6T that was launched only at the end of October.
Perhaps the OnePlus phone with the Snapdragon 855 will be a 5G-based phone, announced early this year. In fact, a OnePlus press release sent to the Android Authority confirmed that the first 5G merchant phone in Europe will also be a OnePlus device.
It can not be said for sure, but it’s a good bet that OnePlus will release a phone with Snapdragon 855 and 5G in Europe and possibly other countries before the end of February.
This independent device would not be OnePlus 7, but a new phone line from the company
