Sprint has been teasing us for a while with the promise of the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G joining its lineup, and it's finally happening. Beginning August 27, you'll be able to find the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G in select True Mobile 5G market retail stores. It will also be available online starting August 28.
The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G can be purchased for as little as $20 per month with $0 down on the Sprint Flex lease for a limited time, or for a one-time payment of $840.
This is great news for Sprint customers because the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is one of our favorite phones around here with plenty of bang for the buck. It's also one of the most affordable 5G phones you can buy, and it comes with a Snapdragon 855, triple camera setup on the back, 90Hz display, and a pop-up selfie camera.
Speaking of 5G, Sprint launched 5G service in four new cities today including Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. Combined with its previous 5G cities Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Kansas, and Chicago that now gives Sprint a total of eight cities with 5G coverage.
Now, it's important to note, that just as with other carriers, 5G coverage will only be available in certain areas of the city. When you're not close enough to a 5G tower, your phone will revert back to 4G speeds. When you are in range, data from Ookla Speedtests show "Sprint's average 5G download speed of 203.8 Mbps is nearly 6X faster than Sprint's average LTE download speed of 35.2 Mbps."
