    Pete , Oct 26, 2018 :

    Hi friends,

    We have always believed that meaningful innovations in technology can push society forward. 5G is set to forever change how we interact with our technology, and with each other. Today we took a massive step forward in our efforts to take this technology from an exciting concept to a technology with real-world applications. We have been preparing to send out the world’s first tweet on a 5G network for a long time.

    It all started in 2016, when we established a special project team with the goal of making OnePlus a leader among 5G smartphone manufacturers.

    In 2017, Qualcomm’s R&D Team officially joined our research efforts. Together we made significant strides in improving 5G hardware and the network architecture that supports it. In August of 2018, the OnePlus 5G Project Team successfully established a 5G connection to Qualcomm's laboratory located in San Diego, in the US. It marked a huge step forward in our 5G efforts, one that was welcomed by our partners and carriers with open arms.

    Today, we are no longer just talking about 5G. For the first time ever, we have actually shown the results of our research and effort. Take a look at how we turned 5G into a reality at the OnePlus research labs.

    When we entered the Lab, our engineers were testing our machines.

    This was the first time we established a successful connection using 5G technology in this session.

    Here is the so-called 'call box', which is Pandora's box of the 5G technology.

    Step by step, they really brought the 5G channels to life.

    Watch our connection on 5G come to life.

    We started by connecting a prototype device to a 5G Non-standalone Network, via an lte b7 + n78 air interface. Once the device had been registered, we began a 5G data call and made the IP layer work. Once we were successful, we sent out the tweet.

    It's our mission to share the best technology with the world. That is not only a statement on the wall, but something that is reflected in each of our products. Now, we are pushing our history of innovation one step further by posting the first 5G tweet in the world. But, this milestone is just the start of our mission. The purpose of this tweet is to prepare us to share this technology with the people who matter most, our community. This is a significant milestone for OnePlus, and I hope you are as excited as we are.

    Never Settle
