A 5G version of the OnePlus 7T Pro exists, but it’s a limited T-Mobile exclusive

We assumed we weren’t going to see a 5G phone in the new OnePlus 7T lineup. It seems that prediction was premature. T-Mobile and OnePlus announced on Wednesday that a 5G version of the OnePlus 7T Pro McClaren Edition will be coming exclusively to the Un-carrier later this year.

The snappily named OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McClaren Edition will use T-Mobile’s 600 MHZ 5G network, which T-Mobile claims is ahead of schedule and well on course to becoming the first company to offer nationwide 5G coverage in the U.S.

The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McClaren Edition is packed to the brim with the latest in flagship phone technology, including the super-fast Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 12GM of RAM, and an enormous 4,095mAh battery. As befits the branding, the phone’s specialty is speed — specifically, charging speed. OnePlus claims the bundled Warp Charge 30W power brick is capable of recharging up to 70% of the battery in as little as 30 minutes.

Further fitting the McClaren brand, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McClaren Edition is also a beautiful phone. A glossy black back panel gives way to an intricate and unique finish beneath the glass. Digital Trends’ Andy Boxall likened it to tree bark or a tribal tattoo in our review, and it’s quite the stunning finish. Finally, the phone also comes with a special case that combines Alcantara with carbon fiber for the ultimate in luxury protection.

The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McClaren Edition joins the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G in OnePlus’ burgeoning roster of 5G phones, and it’s likely that this special edition will remain the only entry in the new 7T range to embrace the 5G revolution. There’s been no word of a OnePlus 7T Pro or OnePlus 7T with a 5G connection, so it seems the McClaren Edition will be the last OnePlus phone released this year to access the next generation of mobile network.

There’s no confirmation yet on a release date or price for the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McClaren Edition, but don’t expect it to be a cheap way to access 5G. The regular OnePlus 7T Pro McClaren Edition starts from 800 British pounds in the U.K. (roughly $1,030), and we would expect the 5G version of that phone to be even more expensive. It will also only be available on a limited basis. We’ll update once we have details on both.

Moto G Power 5G adds a flagship feature to a budget phone

Motorola may be making a play for the flagship market with the Motorola Edge 40 Pro, but budget phones are what the American monolith is best known for. While it won't be making as many waves as the latest Samsung phone or Apple iPhone launch, the newest iteration of the Moto G is always something worth paying attention to, as Motorola is a true veteran of the space and knows what makes an excellent cheap device.

Best of all, this new Moto G comes at a time when budget phone enthusiasts have never had it so good. Previously premium features are filtering down into lower-priced devices, without altering that sweet low price or the features everyone loves. That's exactly what's happening with the new Motorola Moto G Power 5G, which includes a 50-megapixel main camera lens, a larger amount of storage, and a big screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. With the big 5,000mAh battery the G Power range is known for, this could be the $300 phone to grab if you love a budget bargain.

Here’s another big reason why T-Mobile 5G dominates AT&T and Verizon
T-Mobile smartphone.

T-Mobile continues to command a massive lead in offering the best 5G experience among U.S. carriers. A few weeks ago, a report from Ookla revealed that T-Mobile is leaving its rivals in the dust; now Opensignal has confirmed that not only is the Un-carrier’s lead increasing in raw speeds, but it’s leading the way in taking 5G into the mainstream.

According to Opensignal’s latest 5G Experience Report, T-Mobile not only offers the fastest 5G experience in the U.S. by a sizeable margin but on average, customers on T-Mobile spend nearly 50% of their time on the carrier’s 5G network.
