"We have been loyal to Qualcomm's 800-series Snapdragon chipsets since the release of our very first flagship device. This strong partnership with Qualcomm makes us believe that we could bring the best 5G device to the world," Pete Lau, Founder and CEO, OnePlus, said in a statement.

The smartphone player initially began research on 5G in 2016.

In 2017, it started working with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., on OnePlus's 5G device development and in August 2018, the OnePlus 5G Project Team established a 5G connection to Qualcomm Technologies' laboratory located in San Diego, US.

It has been working closely with Qualcomm for two years to perfect the technology to meet OnePlus's standards of "fast and smooth", the company added.
