one plus 在提供高级手机而没有与之相匹配的高级手机方面建立了良好的声誉--我们称之为 one plus 6t "最实惠的旗舰, 你可以得到。

公司首款5g 手机今天上午在毛伊岛举行的高通斯纳普龙科技峰会上宣布, 不会便宜。one plus 首席执行官皮特·刘告诉 的边缘 他的公司正在同时开发新的5g 手机和现有的4g 手机, 他预计他的5g 手机可能要多花费 2 0 0 到 3 0 0 美元。刘晓波通过翻译说: "这很难知道, 因为还有很多细节需要关注, 但很可能还有 2 0-3 0 0 美元。

不过, 并非所有新的5g 智能手机都是如此。高通总裁克里斯蒂亚诺·阿蒙在当天晚些时候接受圆桌采访时表示: "您可能会看到一些原始设备制造商尽可能地将现有的客户群货币化...... 另一方面, 您可能会看到人们试图获得份额并将价格作为这些工具之一。后来我就刘晓波的 2 0 0-3 0 0 美元的评论给他转弯抹角时, 他认为有点高: "我看到一些人 (在价格上) 更有侵略性"

但坦白说, 这是我们第一次知道5g 年底到来后可能需要付出什么代价。毛伊岛的大多数公司对定价都非常谨慎, 美国电话电报公司和 verizon 的高管都告诉 的边缘 他们不能透露他们在定价或计划方面还没有宣布什么。 摩托罗拉, 其 5g mod, 推迟到其运营商合作伙伴 verizon, 和 netgear, 其夜鹰5g 热点, 推迟到美国电话电报公司 & t 三星只有一个概念证明在展会上, 但已经宣布了两部手机到目前为止.

Lau says that he’s pursuing a 5G phone regardless of the price because his customers demand it, and because it’s important to get out early so his engineers can start working through the nuances of 5G which will help them deliver future phones. “5G is an important trend with its own tremendous challenges… we’re working to understand the technology as quickly as possible,” he says.

And one of those challenges — a familiar one for OnePlus — will be building 5G phones for multiple cellular carriers that operate on different frequencies. Lau expects it’ll be even more difficult to take a phone from one carrier to another with 5G than it was for 4G, and the company says it hasn’t yet seen a solution that would cover many different carriers around the world. “5G will be particularly difficult to have a device that covers all of the world, or even most of the world’s networks,” says Lau.

It’s also worth noting that for now, OnePlus’s 5G phone is targeting just one type of 5G network — the slower-speeds-but-wider-coverage-area “sub-6” spectrum used by EE, its first carrier partner in Europe, compared to the speedier millimeter wave that AT&T and Verizon are focusing on first in the United States.

Lau says that millimeter wave creates its own challenges, and a nice-looking handset is one of them, likely due to the different design required to fit multiple antennas. Motorola tells The Verge it had to place the 5G Moto Mod’s four millimeter wave antennas in various distinct places around the device so users could hold it in various orientations without blocking the signal, and Samsung’s prototype has an unusual new notch.

“On the product level, it’s much more complex than 4G, so a significantly higher level of challenge, especially millimeter wave,” says Lau. “It appears impossible to make a nice-looking flagship device, for now.” That could be why he won’t commit to when the United States might see a 5G-enabled OnePlus phone, though he says the company’s watching US carriers closely to see when it might be possible.

In the meanwhile, OnePlus is working on a McLaren-branded revision of its OnePlus 6T, basking in its recent T-Mobile partnership and (finally) support for Verizon’s LTE network in the United States. The company says that in the first 30 days the Verizon-compatible OnePlus 6T was on the market, sales jumped 249 percent compared to the OnePlus 6’s first month on the market.
