India is the world's second-largest mobile market with a population of nearly 1.37 billion. It represents a crucial market for Chinese smartphone makers such as OnePlus, including for 5G phone development.
Only a handful of global smartphone brands can afford to launch 5G phones in India. OnePlus has been recognised as one of them. OnePlus, OnePlus 5G phone sales, and sales of its brand in India are all great with tremendous potential.
OnePlus will launch the 5G version of its flagship phone at a Summer Launch event in the first half of 2021 in India, according to Amazon's statement. It will be the only '5G' smartphone from OnePlus at the start of its 5G phone business.
5G will go beyond the core function of network transmission to become a major part of the overall industry chain and become a new source of income for smartphone makers like OnePlus. OnePlus Nord CE 5G will be the first 5G phone in the India market. It's worth mentioning that OnePlus India, in an exclusive interview, confirmed that the OnePlus Nord would get a successor in the first half of 2021.
At this point, we do not know whether it may launch as a OnePlus Nord successor or a new extended device in the series, while Nord 2 may launch at a later time.
