In addition, Lau said the handset would be based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chipset saying "there's no other choice" than Qualcomm hardware.

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 CEO also pointed out that the OnePlus 5T is now the company's fastest and best-selling product.

While talking about making its phones available through the USA carriers Lau said that only when the right opportunity and time arrives, OnePlus will consider experimenting with it. Market analysts have estimated that around 85 percent to 90 percent consumers in the US purchase smartphones through their carrier. Turns out, the so-called OnePlus 6 will be coming out sometime in June.

It remains to be seen whether the company will face hurdles in doing so, though, as fellow Chinese firm Huawei this week saw AT&T back out of a planned partnership following pressure from the United States government. In an interview with CNET, during the ongoing CES 2018 Pete Lau disclosed this information about the next generation of flagships.

OnePlus has had stateside presence since the OnePlus One's unveiling, but it's been limited to its online store, which sells unlocked OnePlus devices and accessories.

OnePlus just announced that its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 6, will be available as soon as late in the second quarter of 2018. The latter also got the Star Wars Edition, Sandstone White and Lava Red variants.

OnePlus became the most successful smartphone brand in the year 2017 in terms of popularity as well as breaking their sales record. The OnePlus 5 was launched in June past year, and it seems the company wants to maintain the launch cycle.

Not much is known, other than the flagship processor from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 845.

Lau did not provide a specific time frame on when a partnership between OnePlus and a US carrier could be formed.
