The OnePlus 8 is coming to Verizon with a model that supports mmWave

Today, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 8 series, its newest lineup of flagship smartphones. As expected, they all support 5G, rather than having separate 5G models like last year. In fact, all Snapdragon 865 devices have 5G.

One thing that's interesting is that OnePlus is partnering with Verizon now. The company has only had a short relationship with U.S. carriers, starting with T-Mobile for the OnePlus 6T, and then later with Sprint for the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. But the latest carrier that you can grab a OnePlus device from is Verizon.

Moreover, Verizon is getting its own model of the OnePlus 8. The Ultra Wideband SKU will support both sub6 5G and mmWave 5G, while the rest of the variants will only support sub6.

This isn't the first time that Verizon has secured its own Ultra Wideband variant of a normally sub6-only smartphone. Later this year, the carrier is also getting its own variants of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G and the Galaxy S20 5G. In fact, Verizon will certainly have the largest collection of devices that support both ends of the 5G spectrum.

The OnePlus 8 5G UW will be available on April 29 for $799.99, or $33.33 a month for 24 months.
