Verizon 5G coverage

The first thing you’d wanna know is if Verizon’s 5G coverage is available in your area. Well, we have a mixed bag of news here, but first the good stuff.

Verizon became the first telco in the country to flip the 5G switch on smartphones in Chicago and Minneapolis. Yes, overall AT&T took the lead, but the latter’s speedy network could only be accessed via a 5G hotspot and not a smartphone.

At the time, Verizon said that its 5G service in Chicago is concentrated in areas around the West Loop and South Loop where tourist attractions are common, Gold Coast, Old Town, and North River. In Minneapolis, the service is limited to areas in the east and west downtown and the U.S. Bank Stadium.

In late April, the carrier revealed that 5G coverage is coming to 20 more cities, making it a total of 22 cities with guaranteed 5G coverage, at least by the time the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G arrives in May 2023.

Here is the full list:

Atlanta

Boston

Charlotte

Chicago

Cincinnati

Cleveland

Columbus

Dallas

Des Moines

Denver

Detroit

Houston

Indianapolis

Kansa City

Little Rock

Memphis

Minneapolis

Phoenix

Providence

San Diego

Salt Lake City

Washington DC

By the end of 2023, Verizon says it will have 5G coverage in 30 cities across the U.S. Still, it’s worth noting that even in these 5G-ready cities, coverage will still be spotty, but this is expected considering it’s only the beginning of what is to be a painfully long changeover process.

While Verizon’s 5G network is already available in several cities, don’t expect it to cover every part of the said cities. In fact, it’s likely to be deployed in busy places within these cities such as airports, stadiums, and conference centers, with those in suburbs and rural areas set to wait for years before getting a taste of true 5G.

To be fair, this is the case with every other U.S. carrier that’s venturing into 5G.

Verizon 5G speed

AT&T has been making headlines with news of interesting speed test results for its 5G network. The carrier managed speeds of up to 2Gbps during tests done in Atlanta in April 2023 and it says these speeds are expected to improve with time.

So far, average speeds in the regions of 450Mbps have been touted by the Big Red, although results ranging between 300Mbps and 900Mbps have been showcased in some cases. This should be in line with the promised “up to 10x” speeds (compared to LTE) we expect when 5G is fully deployed.

While AT&T is getting everyone excited by the mention of crazy fast speeds, Verizon is keeping things low-key. Instead of overpromising and risk facing the wrath of customers in case it under delivers, Verizon is basically under-promising with the hope of over-delivering when 5G goes live.

Verizon 5G phones

Verizon has the upper hand when it comes to supported 5G phones. The first was the Motorola Moto Z3 that connects to 5G via a 5G Moto Mod, but if not interested in adding more weight to your device in the name of modularity, the only other option is Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.

The Big Red is the exclusive carrier of the Galaxy S10 5G in the U.S., although this exclusivity is limited to time, with other carriers joining the party at a later time.

One little problem is that anything 5G comes at a cost. Whereas the Moto Z3 seems like the cheapest avenue to mobile 5G for now ($480 for the phone and $350 for the 5G Moto Mod), you’ll need to cough a cool $1300 to get your hands on the base model of the Galaxy S10 5G.

Verizon is also expected to carry the LG V50 ThinQ 5G when it arrives in the country, although Sprint should lead the way ahead of other U.S. carriers. The Big Red has also confirmed that the Galaxy Note 10 will get a 5G model that will be carried on the network, but this will have to wait until Q3 2023.

Unlike the U.S. that only has a couple or so 5G Android phones to choose from, those in European countries like the UK have at least five 5G Android phones, including two from Huawei, one each from OnePlus and Xiaomi, and the aforementioned S10 5G. ZTE is also expected to bring the ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G in Europe at some point later this year.

Verizon 5G data plans

There has been a lot of talk around the potential cost of 5G data plans on Verizon, especially now that it’s clear owning a 5G phone requires more than $1000. Verizon’s data plans are already above the competition and its hard imagining that 5G data plans will be otherwise.

And indeed, the Big Red wasted no time in confirming our fears. Apparently, 5G data plans will attract an extra cost of $10 per month for access to unlimited data. This extra cost comes on top of what you are currently paying for unlimited LTE data, which is $75 for the base plan. As part of the plan, you also get unlimited hotspot 5G data with no video streaming caps.

Verizon 5G Home

Verizon is set to be the first carrier to offer 5G fixed wireless internet to the home in what it calls Verizon 5G Home. The initial rollout started in October 2023 in parts of Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Sacramento, and Houston and is expected to spread to more regions throughout the year, although there is no official roadmap.

Early adopters of Verizon 5G Home pay $50 per month for existing Verizon customers and $70 for those after the standalone 5G service. The best part is that there are no data caps and even better is that unlike the initial equipment, users will be able to self-install the new 5G router when it relaunches.

Also, Verizon says 5G Home services will be offered for free for the first three months of coverage and include other freebies like YouTube TV for three months from the day of installing the equipment and free Google Chromecast Ultra or Apple TV 4K device.

Conclusion

Verizon is the biggest mobile operator in the country and it makes sense that it’s leading the rest in 5G adoption. The exclusivity of the Galaxy S10 5G, the only 5G-ready phone available so far, is a huge boost to the carrier’s efforts to spearhead the 5G rollout in the country.

However, like every other carrier, it will take several years before Verizon’s 5G coverage reaches suburbs and rural America. The fact that the number of supported smartphones is also limited should play a huge role in slowing down 5G adoption, at least in 2023.

Zte Axon 11 5G Review: More Than Just Affordable 5G?

The ZTE Axon 11 5G is the successor to 2023’s ZTE Axon 10 Pro, but the phone is more of a sideways step than a direct high-end replacement. If you’re after the latter, you’ll want to check out the upcoming ZTE Axon 20. Instead, the Axon 11 strives to introduce 5G to the Axon series without the usual premium-tier price tag.

While the Axon 10 Pro featured a high-end Snapdragon 855 processor, the Axon 11 5G opts for a mid-range Snapdragon 765G. That said, day-to-day performance is as responsive as ever and the phone is also well suited to some light gaming sessions. Just don’t expect to max out any graphics settings.

Read more: Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G vs Snapdragon 865

The phone retains a reasonably snappy, if not the most secure, optical in-display fingerprint scanner. 18W fast charging with Quick Charge 4+ support has you back up to 45% juice in half an hour. Although the phone takes nearly two hours to fully charge, which is rather slow. Fortunately, the large 4,000mAh battery easily lasts through a full day of moderate use. Although gaming is a bit more of a battery drain.

The ZTE Axon 11 caters to your essential smartphone experience, with a drop of 5G for good measure

Circling back to the camera, this is the phone’s biggest irritant. Four cameras sound great on paper, but it’s a below-par package. The Axon 11 5G is a textbook example where two or even one good rear camera would be preferable. The main camera is by far the best but is a tad aggressive with post-processing, making the digital-only zoom rather unpleasant to use. It can produce some nice-looking pictures with good colors and white balance. But the HDR implementation is poor, detail is so-so, and low-light pictures aren’t great. I wouldn’t bother with the 64MP shooting mode, as you don’t end up with anywhere near enough detail for the huge file size trade-off.

The wide-angle and macro cameras are where things go downhill. The former completely lacks detail, even in daylight, and suffers from noticeable edge-distortion. Its fixed focal point is too short, leaving distant details out of focus. The 2MP macro lens isn’t much better. It looks passable in great lighting, is useless in low light, and ultimately I’m not sure when I’d ever use it. The depth sensor helps with bokeh accuracy, but it’s again quite hit and miss. Furthermore, ZTE’s blur effect looks rather basic and isn’t as nice as you’ll find on high-end phones.

On the plus side, the phone offers 4K 60fps video capture, a feature you won’t normally find at this price point. Video capture quality is OK, although not perfectly crisp in daylight. Image quality degrades quickly and substantially once the lights go down, rendering 1080p, let alone 4K60, pointless outside of perfect conditions. There’s also a red tint on the right half of the video in low light. I can’t state enough just how poor low-light video quality is compared to rival handsets.

Full-resolution photos can be viewed here.

Turning to the software, MiFavor 10.1 is a reasonably stock-like interface with a few of its own quirks thrown in. These include a built-in screen recorder and the ability to pick between traditional on-screen buttons or gesture-based navigation. Although the swipe up and hold for recent apps gesture is a bit unreliable. You’ll have to go digging to find all the options. ZTE’s setting suggestions aren’t as helpful as they could be at navigating the labyrinth of sub-menus. But overall, MiFavor is a streamlined and highly usable UI.

ZTE Axon 11 5G: The good…

Good size that handles well. It’s lightweight and pretty slim for a large handset.

Performance and battery life. The combination of a mid-range Snapdragon 765G processor and 4,000mAh battery easily last all day.

The software. The European model has a very lightweight UI that offers just the right range of tweaks.

…and the bad

The cameras. The main sensor is passable, but the other three cameras verge on useless.

Video recording. In low light, videos are terribly grainy and virtually unusable.

The design. Plastic trim feels a bit cheaply constructed. Not a great-looking handset.

Lg V50 Thinq 5G Review: The Og Lg 5G

Our Verdict

The V50 ThinQ is basically just a 5G V40 with a processor upgrade. That means both good and bad: faster internet speeds and new features, balanced out by a thicker body and slightly reduced battery life. We loved the V40, but almost a year on the V50 doesn’t feel as competitive. Then there’s the Dual Screen. This is a gimmick for most people – which might explain why it isn’t even available in the US. But it’s also a surprisingly novel way to bring the foldable experience to a much lower price point, and if you’re a devoted multi-tasker then it actually works better than you might expect, if you can forgive a few niggling design flaws.

The V50 ThinQ 5G is LG’s first – and so far only – 5G phone, but that’s not all it’s got going for it. It’s also the phone that introduced the company’s Dual Screen accessory, which is essentially a novel attempt to deliver a foldable phone without, well, making a foldable phone.

It’s an odd combination of novel features that hide the fact that under the surface the V50 is really a capable but slightly dull flagship phone that probably costs too much – essentially par for the course for LG these days.

Price and availability

The V50 ThinQ is now available to buy through EE or Carphone Warehouse (on EE plans) in the UK, where prices start at £64 per month. EE turned on its 5G network in selected UK cities on 30 May. As with most 5G phones so far, it’s locked to that network and you can’t buy it SIM-free. If you buy from EE or Carphone Warehouse then the Dual Screen is included with the phone, though the V50 is also for sale from Buy Mobiles with no mention of the Dual Screen attachment, so check before you buy to make sure you know what you’re getting.

If you’re in the US you can get it on contract from Sprint or Verizon, where you can also buy it outright for $999. One downside is that if you’re in the US you don’t get the Dual Screen.

See all the 5G phones coming this year.

The OG LG 5G

The V50 ThinQ is LG’s first ever 5G device – and going forward every ‘V’ series device will be 5G-compatible, while the ‘G’ series sticks with 4G for the time being.

There are downsides too though. The Snapdragon X50 modem powering the 5G capabilities is a little larger than normal, and the extra power drain means a bigger battery is required, both of which combine to make the V50 actually thicker than last year’s V40 – though at 8.3mm, it’s still far from chunky.

Speaking of that bigger battery, it’s a decent 4,000mAh, but LG is only predicting a battery life of 1.2 days. In our internal testing the V50 came in at the low end of most flagships – though not by too much – but I found it would only last a little longer than a day in normal use, and I’d be beginning to get antsy about a charge towards the end of the day, and much more so with the Dual Screen attached.

As for 5G itself, it’s still firmly in early adopter territory. We reviewed  EE’s 5G network here in London and found signals and speeds unreliable – though undeniably fast when you find a good spot. Using the phone around the city I found 5G access was sporadic, and that while speeds were improved they didn’t have a tremendous impact on the ways I mostly used the phone – unless you’re trying to upload high quality video you’re unlikely to spot the difference.

With patchy signal, 5G also won’t save you from periods with little to no connection, so don’t expect it’ll solve all your slow download woes at once. Essentially, 5G is here, it does work, but we wouldn’t rush to upgrade until it’s more widespread and contract prices have dropped down.

Feeling familiar

As for the rest of the phone, it feels fairly familiar, but that’s no bad thing – the V40 was LG’s best phone yet, so we can’t complain too much about more of the same.

From the front it looks like nothing’s really changed from the V40 – there’s the same notch, thin bezels round the 6.4in OLED display, and dual selfie cameras. Even the dimensions are almost identical, aside from the extra thickness (and corresponding 10g or so of weight).

That at least means things are just as good as before. The V40 packed one of the best screens in the business, and the V50 is the same – inky blacks, bright colours, phenomenal contrast, and a wealth of detailed colour and brightness settings mean that this is the perfect screen for display nerds. The only thing lacking is the higher refresh rates that other phones have begun to offer, but the QHD+ resolution here goes some way to making up for that.

Other features are familiar too: IP68 water resistance, rear fingerprint scanner, face unlock, and LG’s ‘Boombox Speaker’ mode – now improved by the addition of a stereo speaker setup. There’s still a headphone jack (hooray!) and a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC to make sure your audio is always at the top of its game.

Cameras are basically the same too: once again you get regular, wide-angle, and 2x optical zoom lenses on the rear, and other than some minor tweaks these are essentially the same shooters as last year’s phone.

Still, as with the display, that isn’t really any bad thing: these are very solid cameras, even if they’re not quite likely to trouble the best-in-class flagships from 2023, which have seen upgrades to both sensors and software that outstrip LG.

The main lens handles a variety of challenging lighting conditions well, with good exposure and accurate, if slightly warm, colouring – though there’s some loss of detail in shots with greater exposure ranges. The 2x optical zoom lags behind the higher zooms of rival handsets, but offers good detail – though with a smaller aperture it does struggle more in low light scenarios. The wide angle fares better, keeping up with the quality of the main lens in most settings.

Video is more impressive though, with the V50 not only handling 4K at 60fps, but also offering some of the best video stabilisation I’ve tested – here the V50 still feels competitive with the latest and greatest of 2023.

There are at least all the requisite upgrades internally: the latest Snapdragon 855 processor and 128GB storage, with 6GB RAM to back it up. It’ll also run Android Pie 9.0 out of the box.

Take a look at our benchmark results and the V50 does unsurprisingly well – at this level there’s little to pull apart the various flagships, and the V50 comfortably keeps up with every rival device, and outpaces the V40 across the board.

There’s wireless charging support, but the wired charging tops out at 18W – fast, but not fast enough to keep up with the competition. It edged over 50 percent charge in an hour or so, and takes about two hours to charge to full – way behind rivals that can get half a charge in just 30 minutes.

All of this is essentially welcome, if unexciting, leaving the V50 ThinQ feeling quite a lot like a V40 with a 5G modem slapped in. There’s arguably good reason for that though: LG has focussed its innovation not on the phone itself, but on the strangest smartphone accessory we’ve seen in years.

Move over Nintendo

Meet the LG Dual Screen, cutting edge tech that’s coming out a scant 15 years after Nintendo did essentially the same thing with its DS game console.

The Dual Screen is an accessory for the V50 that consists of a hinged case with a 6.2in OLED display on one side, and a slot for the V50 itself on the other, turning it into a bi-screened device that’s eerily reminiscent of Nintendo’s handheld line. It’s included by default in the UK, but not available at all in the US, but it’s arguably the main reason to pick up the otherwise so-so phone.

The second screen can rotate a full 360 degrees, closing into a clamshell or flipping all the way over to give you screens on the front and back. It’s essentially the same sort of experience that the likes of Samsung and Huawei are offering with their new foldables, but in this case it’s a removable add-on that you can use as and when you please – and costs far less than a foldable..

Use cases range from the obvious – using the second screen to show someone the camera output while you’re taking a photo – to the more creative: flooding the second screen with bright white to help light your face better for selfies.

LG has even created a dedicated GamePad app which lets you turn one screen into a touchscreen controller while you use the other for playing games, further solidifying the sense that this is basically a Nintendo DS mod for your phone. This works well in supported games, but they’re unfortunately few and far-between, and we’re sceptical about how far-ranging support will ever be.

For the most part the Dual Screen is best suited to multi-tasking and productivity, letter you run separate apps on each screen or let supported apps – LG’s own, basically – spread across both to unlock new functionality. You’ll probably pretty quickly decide if you love it or hate it, but at least you can quickly pop the phone out when you don’t want the extra bulk (or battery drain) of the second display.

There are a couple design quirks to be aware of. Most annoyingly, the hinge will only lock when the screen is fully rotated, or parallel to the display, so you can’t comfortably set it to the perfect viewing angle. There’s also no display on the front, even though the reflective black surface looks like it should be a screen, while the display that is there is noticeably smaller and of worse quality than the main V50 panel – the sort of thing you’d only notice when they’re side-by-side, which they will be all the time.

All of these flaws have been fixed in the upcoming LG G8X at least, but that won’t be much consolation to V50 owners.

Verdict

Taken on its own, the V50 ThinQ is basically just a 5G V40 with a processor upgrade. That means both good and bad: faster internet speeds and new features, balanced out by a thicker body and slightly reduced battery life. 

We loved the V40, but almost a year on the V50 doesn’t feel as competitive – the rest of the market has moved on faster than the V-series, so while this is competitive on internal specs it already feels slightly dated in design and other small features, which makes the steep price tricky to justify.

Then there’s the Dual Screen. This is, to be blunt, a gimmick for most people, and a fairly silly one at that – which might explain why it isn’t even available in the US. But it’s also a surprisingly novel way to bring the foldable experience to a much lower price point, and if you’re a devoted multi-tasker then it actually works better than you might expect, if you can forgive a few niggling design flaws.

5G Simplified: What, When, Where, Which, Why?

5G Simplified: What, When, Where, Which, Why?

Introduction

Must Read: How Secure Is 4G LTE To Surf and Explore The Internet?

The method of communication over long distances wirelessly or telecommunications has evolved over time and hence is divided into generations and each is differentiated from another through numbers, hence 1G, 2G and so on.

History

What developed first was first generation and termed as 1G and further notable innovations in the field of wireless technology were denoted with an increase of integer in the prefix.

1G

2G

The process of converting analogy to digital signals manifested a significant change and this marked the beginning of the second generation (2G) in the field of telecommunications. With technologies like GSM and CDMA, not only communications over long distances with better voice transfer capabilities was achieved but the users could also send text and picture messages to another user. By the end of the second millennium, users could even send emails within a secured framework.

4G

What is 5G?

Image Source : Manufacturing.net

5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. It will let a person to carry out all the usual activities done on a cellular device but with an unimaginable speed. This incredible speed will also open doors into a new dimension of internet technology never experienced before.  Not only will it allow users to browse websites created on virtual reality, upload or download Ultra HD videos, and use data-intensive apps or features but also it will allow the user to connect a major chunk of the devices used in home and thus transforming it into a smart house and all that without a bit of latency. In a more technical sense, 5G brings three new aspects to the table: greater speed (to move more data), lower latency (to be more responsive), and the ability to connect a lot more devices at once (smart homes with smart devices).

When would this be implemented?

While research and development in 5G technology began in 2008, however, the technology was first tested successfully in 2023 by Korea telecom in 2023 winter Olympics. AT&T and Verizon carried out the tests in a few cities in U.S while Vodafone initiated in the U.K in April 2023. 5G technology would launch out globally in 2023 with many compatible devices being launched in the first half of the year. The earliest 5G deployments have used fixed wireless, like the wireless broadband used at home due to the adoption of millimetre wave technology which require multiple small celled towers in an area rather than a single traditional cellular tower. The installation of several towers to cover a small area require huge capital investment and time. By 2023, a considerable number of people would be using 5G across the globe. According to Ericsson, a company that makes some of the cellular infrastructure, there will be over 1.5 billion of us connected to 5G by 2024.

Where would this be implemented?

The global rat race for implementing 5G is on! With fierce competition among most of the countries, experiencing 5 G will soon come out from theory to reality. The Super powers have already implemented test phases in a few cities with others not lagging behind.

The following countries have initiated 5G with a limited scope:

1)USA

2)China

3)Russia

4)UK

5) France

Countries like South Korea, Germany, Japan have also started investing heavily in 5g infrastructure.

Which cellular devices would be compatible?

The first thought that often comes to our mind is would my current phone become a brick once 5G launches. The answer is not at all. Though 5G would be available by 2023 but it would require many more years for a complete migration from 4G to 5G network as it requires huge costs. In the initial phase the Telecom companies will rollout 5G gradually from urban cities to smaller towns. More than 10 cellular device manufacturers globally have pledged a 5G phone in 2023. The more famous ones include:

Samsung

LG

HTC

OnePlus

Nokia

Huawei

Xiaomi

Vivo

Sony

Asus

 

Apple has not made any officially announced a 5G iPhone yet. Perhaps it is waiting for the telecom companies to expand their 5G networks before it launches a flagship piece.

5G compatible devices would not be of any use until the telecom carriers adopt the new technology. Those who have already started the trials include:

AT&T

China Telecom

Deutsche Telekom

NTT Docomo

Orange

Singtel

Sprint

Telstra

TIM

Verizon

Vodafone Group

Why is there a need to implement 5G?

The world is moving mobile and data consumption is rising exponentially every year, particularly as streaming videos and audios online is gaining popularity. The existing 4G has the capability of providing a faster internet but when it comes to the number of users, interruptions in service, specially when lots of people in the same area are trying to access online mobile services at the same time. To overcome this drawback, 5G is much better at handling thousands of devices at the same time, from mobiles to equipment sensors, video cameras to smart street lights.

The biggest noticeable benefits will be speed. 5G is expected to deliver somewhere between 80-100Mbps which means getting the wired broadband like speed on the move. That’s going to make a vast change when it comes to downloading movies, large files, or playing games. Movie would be streaming as seamlessly as music streaming currently is dropping the requirement of storage devices. The augmented reality experiences which are currently theorized could become reality, PC-quality gaming on your mobile with “zero lag” or having multi-way video calling without any issues.

There would be developments which we cannot foresee but imagine drones carrying out search and rescue missions, fire assessments and traffic monitoring, with wireless communication taking place flawlessly with each other and ground base stations over 5G networks. It would bring big changes to video games, sports and shopping. Hospitals can create massive sensor networks to monitor patients, physicians can prescribe smart pills to track compliance, and insurers can even monitor subscribers to determine appropriate treatments and processes.

Beyond general consumer needs, a 5G network will also allow a connected traffic infrastructure, smart communities and cities, industrial IoT where remote factories working without local intervention and immersive education—all relying on 5G.

Summary

Uncle Ben once said to Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility”. But in case of 5G it is the other way around. We, the people of earth have the urge to be responsible for great internet speeds with no latency and for that we require great power of the internet.

There is no doubt that 5G would be a game changer in all turfs whether it comes to your home or business. The power unleashed would be so great that its true potential and how it could be used to benefit mankind to the fullest would be unthinkable as of now. We would have to live it before new and useful innovations get developed based on 5G. But we can get ready to say goodbye to buffering issues, disruptions in crowded places, while saying welcome to the hottest trends in tech today: IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence) and AR (Augmented Reality) and many more limitless possibilities.

Oneplus Nord N10 5G And Nord N100 Are Now Cheaper

The OnePlus Nord N10 and Nord N100 smartphones are currently on sale in Europe for 349 euros and 199 euros, respectively. On February 8, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G price will drop to € 299 and the Nord N100 will drop to € 149. This is indirect evidence that the company is preparing to launch a new Nord N series phone.

According to previous information, the company’s next mid-range smartphone is codenamed Ebba. It should come out to the market under the name OnePlus Nord N1 5G and eventually replace the Nord N10 5G.

The OnePlus 9 series of smartphones is also expected to be unveiled next month, which includes three phones, including the OnePlus 9 Lite, OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. Finally, the company is expected to release a phone called OnePlus Nord SE.

OnePlus Nord N1 5G will join OnePlus 2023 smartphone lineup

At the dawn of its appearance, OnePlus made it a rule to play in the flagship segment. But last year, the company moved away from this strategy, as the market situation required other actions that would allow it to scale its business. So the affordable Nord line appeared in the model range of the Chinese company.

The lite version should offer a 90 Hz display and will run Snapdragon 865 SoC. Although, most likely, the choice will fall on a fresher platform. And it may well be the Snapdragon 870 SoC.

OnePlus has big plans for 2023, reveals Pete Lau

Pete Lau said that with the end of January, we’re already a full month in 2023. He ended by stating that the company has big plans for 2023. OnePlus is very popular overseas, so the Tweet got a lot of replies. Some users expressed curiosity, while others started to tease OnePlus. Some said crazy stuff like “acquisition of Apple”; while others stated that this has something to do with the “1+9 series”.

Pete Lau may refer to the upcoming flagship series

This certainly has to do with the OnePlus 9 series; which is set to make its debut in the end of Q1 2023. This year, the brand will unveil three new smartphones dubbed OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, and 9 Lite. While the two standard editions are set to come with the Snapdragon 888; we assume that the Lite variant will pack the Snapdragon 870, which also makes it a flagship; but priced at a lower price point.

Apart from this, the new devices are also set to come with very powerful cameras. If you recall, Pete Lau previously stated that the company will invest huge resources in cameras this year. The main goal is to become the world’s number on image function. We’re sure that those are high aspirations, but that is something that the company can achieve. After all, the competition is fighting every year and it’s hard to pick any brand right now as the best for camera purposes.

As per reports, the OnePlus 9 will provide two larger main cameras, but no periscope lens. Some even claim that OnePlus will cooperate with Leica or Hasselblad this year. Pete Lau also paid attention to Hasselblad and Leica this week, giving certain credibility to these claims.
