- OnePlus announced that it has worked with Jio and Airtel to provide 5G support for its devices in India.
- Vodafone-Idea 5G will also be available for OnePlus users once rolled out.
- Compatible OnePlus and Nord series of phones support 5G in India.
OnePlus has announced that all its smartphones launched since 2020 are now supporting 5G networks in India. The company revealed that all OnePlus smartphone users who have bought a 5G smartphone since 2020 can now experience the latest generation network provided by Jio and Airtel. 5G was launched in India in October 2022 and the rollout took place within a few days. The first phase of the 5G rollout in India included 22 cities but telcos have promised to provide nationwide support as early as December 2023.
While 5G has been available in a few major cities across India, users were not able to experience the new generation network due to the lack of support. Smartphone companies were required to release a software update for unlocking 5G support on their devices. OnePlus is among the list of smartphone operators to have worked with telcos to provide support and release the update for unlocking 5G on its devices in India.
The list of OnePlus smartphones that support Airtel and Jio 5G networks in India includes the likes of top-tier OnePlus 10 Pro to mid-range smartphones in the Nord series. The Nord CE 2 Lite is the most affordable smartphone from the company to have launched with 5G network support in India.
OnePlus has also announced that it has worked with Vodafone-Idea (Vi) for the telco’s 5G network in New Delhi. Therefore, once Vi rolls out its 5G network, OnePlus smartphone users on the network will be able to experience Vi 5G.
As of now, OnePlus smartphone users using Jio True 5G and Airtel 5G Plus can experience the new generation network in areas where the service is available.
