Believe it or not, CES is right around the corner. While the world’s biggest technology conference typically isn’t as exciting as Mobile World Congress when it comes to smartphone announcements, there’s typically at least one stands-out device that captures the imagination.
While OnePlus typically doesn’t have a big presence at CES, the company has announced that it will be unveiling the OnePlus Concept One, a concept phone which will likely show off new innovations which may be present in its 2020 successor to the OnePlus 7 Pro.
OnePlus did not reveal any details about the device or the technologies it will be highlighting with it. Based on what we’ve seen recently from other manufacturers, chip makers and hardware suppliers, the OnePlus Concept One could be running the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with the company’s extra-large ultrasonic fingerprint sensor below its display.
The display itself could also be an upgrade over the QHD+ AMOLED panel we saw on the OnePlus 7 Pro which features a 90Hz refresh rate. Due to the close relationship OnePlus shares with Oppo, we could also see an in-display front-facing camera and even more advancements in fast charging.
The name itself, Concept One, is a clear promise that this device is only the first in a series to come and shows OnePlus’ commitment to applied, innovative technology – bringing users an even smoother, faster, and more “burdenless” experience. The OnePlus Concept One demonstrates a vision of both new technology and an alternate design approach for the future of smartphones.
We’re planning to have some quality hands-on time with the OnePlus Concept One at CES in less than a few weeks. As soon as we do, we’ll be sure to share our experience with you.
