OnePlus is planning to introduce a new premium model in 2019 that supports 5G and features new display technology. Called the OnePlus 7 Pro, the phone will have a display that's "super-smooth and very crisp," according to OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, as reported by the Verge. The report speculates that the display may support a 90Hz refresh rate that's about 33 percent faster than most other smartphones.

The faster refresh rate may have been foreshadowed by Lau in a tweet from last week:

The company's next flagship is expected this spring, possibly as early as May 14. The Verge article suggests that although the OnePlus 7 Pro will support 5G, the company is downplaying it, given the near-term limits of the next generation network

Previously, OnePlus had said that it would be among the first to have 5G in a phone -- but that the device would not come to the US. The company did not immediately respond to a request to comment.

OnePlus originally captured a following by making phones with many of the premium features found on Apple and Samsung's premium phones and selling them for hundreds less. Since then, it's tweaked that strategy: OnePlus now has one of the highest increases in cost from model to model.
