OnePlus could unveil its next device sometime in June, which is when OnePlus 5 was launched past year. CEO, Pete Lau, said that the company may stop selling exclusively through its website in favour of using local networks to distribute the handsets as other manufacturers do.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau in an interview with CNET has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T - which were launched in 2016 - will both get the Face Unlock feature that was first introduced on the OnePlus 5T.
Lau was also questioned regarding the possiblity of a follow-up OnePlus 6T to launch inside 2018 as well, following the firm's habit with the OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5/5T. The smartphone is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and is available in two storage variants 64GB and 128GB.
A deal with a major carrier like AT&T or Verizon could potentially catapult OnePlus to a much bigger audience. However Lau did say "A lot of our users don't know about the time and resources spent on a phone". The CEO also pointed out that the OnePlus 5T is now the company's fastest and best-selling product.

Given that the company now claims that it is in talks with the U.S. carriers, we believe that OnePlus is serious about what CNET states is "breaking into the mainstream". "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment", Lau added.
In terms of sales, the OnePlus 5T is their fastest and best-selling product yet and they are looking to increase its reach through USA telcos this year.
In addition, Lau said the handset would be based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset saying "there's no other choice" than Qualcomm hardware.
