I know O2 don't stock/sell OnePlus devices anymore (including the new OP8/OP8P), but since this is the phone I'm planning on getting I'm wondering if O2's 5G will work on it? Some reports over ath OnePlus' forums indicate it isn't working - yet; if so, can we expect it to work at some point once O2 has had a chance of approving the device?
From what I can see there are no technical reasons the phone can't work on O2 5G (on the 3500MHz freqency / n78 band).
Excellent news, @Liammurphy!
My OnePlus 6T was replaced with a Pixel 4a at the start of this year, partly because 5G is nowhere near where I live yet, nor will it be in the next 12-18 months as far as I can tell, and because of the uncertainty around how newer OnePlus 5G phones would work with O2 5G generally.
I hope your OnePlus gives you a decent amount of 5G service over the duration of your contract term - they are a great, if now more pricey, spec of phone.
