The OnePlus 7 Pro's 5G variant may be coming to the US soon. The carrier Sprint has announced that its next device that will support the next-gen bands will be from this OEM. Its phones have also been available through T-Mobile in the past.

Sprint has released a statement outlining its plans to stock its first OnePlus smartphone. Furthermore, this device will also work on the carrier's 5G network. For some reason, the company has not named the product in question; however, as this OEM has released only 1 5G phone to date, there are not many points for guessing what it is.

In other words, it is most likely that the 7 Pro 5G will finally see a launch in the United States, through Sprint. As this phone has only been released through telecomms companies in a handful of countries, and not OnePlus' own international web store as is more usual, this makes sense. This device is almost exactly the same as a typical 7 Pro unit of the same storage capacity, with the obvious exception that it can support the carrier's new mmWave bands.

This move brings the total of 5G OEMs associated with Sprint to 4: they consist of Samsung, LG, HTC, and now OnePlus. The latter has also sold phones in partnership with T-Mobile in the past. As these 2 carriers are about to merge in the US, this new agreement could be a major coup for the Chinese phone-maker in general, and its 5G business in particular.
