Sprint this week announced its fourth 5G device and first 5G smartphone with OnePlus, a global mobile technology company. Sprint however did not reveal the device specifications, pricing and exact timing for the release.

December last year, OnePlus partnered with EE to be the first to release a commercial 5G smartphone in Europe. The new OnePlus 7 Pro 5G smartphone offered by EE is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem which boasts download speeds of up to 2Gbps.

Sprint 5G is currently available in areas of Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Kansas City, and the company expects to launch service in areas of Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks. Sprint’s True Mobile 5G network will cover approximately 2,100 square miles and 11 million people total across all nine market launch areas, giving Sprint the largest initial 5G coverage footprint in the U.S.

Dow Draper, Chief Commercial Officer, Sprint
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.

Kyle Kiang, CMO, OnePlus
As a community-driven company, we are thrilled to tell OnePlus enthusiasts on the Sprint network that the wait is finally over.
