OnePlus shows off 5G soap bar at Mobile World Congress

This year’s Mobile World Congress has been full of 5G announcements, from Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G to the LG V50 5G ThinQ. We’ve been hearing talk about a 5G phone from OnePlus for months, and the company finally showed off the device at Mobile World Congress — sort of.

OnePlus had a prototype of its 5G phone on the MWC show floor, but it was wrapped in a large white box, hiding everything except the screen. In its current form, the device looks more like a soap bar than a 5G-connected phone.

Along with the show floor demo, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau made a post on the company’s forums discussing the development process of the phone. OnePlus has been working with Qualcomm on the project since 2017, and the company successfully sent a tweet over 5G last year. There is no public release date for the device yet.
