- OnePlus has reportedly confirmed that its 2019 flagship will not be the first to offer the Snapdragon 855 chipset.
- OnePlus attributed the mistake to a miscommunication.
- We may still see a OnePlus phone launch earlier than usual in 2019, however.
According to Engadget, Chinese versions of the slide deck used by CEO Pete Lau show that OnePlus would be “among the first” manufacturers to use the new chipset. However, the English version used during Lau’s address boldly stated that OnePlus would be “first” to offer the processor.
A OnePlus spokesperson later confirmed the error to the outlet and said the brand would be “one of the first” to use the chip, rather than the first.
