Leaked OnePlus 8 Pro render
OnePlus is seemingly preparing to unveil…
something later today, however it absolutely’s clearly too soon and there may be way too little buzz surrounding this announcement for the company’s subsequent flagship handsets to break duvet.
At the same time, rumors have been swirling for a little whereas of a that you can imagine change in the Chinese outfit’s traditional release agenda, and a “source cessation to the company” tells
TechRadar India that the OnePlus 8 series will indeed skedaddle official earlier than you may have anticipated. Whereas renowned Twitter leaker Ishan Agarwal shared some inside information calling for
a “launch in late March or April” about a month ago, this scorching modern describe further narrows down the OnePlus 8 timeline.
Mid-April global announcement?
If TechRadar’s anonymous sources explain accurate, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will stare daylight in the “second week of April.” That’s a little over a month away, mind you, now not to mention it would easiest be roughly six months after the October 10 launch of the exceptionally effectively-reviewed
OnePlus 7T Pro last year.

Perhaps most notably, an April 9 or so announcement occasion would advance less than 11 months after the May 14 launch of the
OnePlus 7 and
7 Pro, which arrived almost exactly one year on the heels of the
OnePlus 6. Going back further in time, we may restful probably highlight the
OnePlus 3 and
OnePlus 5 had been unveiled in June 2016 and 2017 respectively, whereas the
OnePlus 2 broke duvet in July 2015.
So, no, it be now not solely surprising to hear the company is planning to further pass up its release agenda for the primary half of the year, and although the mid-April tip specifically considerations India, latest history indicates a global announcement will probably follow quickly or take place at the exact same time. Also based on latest history, we can ask the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro to skedaddle on sale around the sector within days of officially breaking duvet, however there are a couple of things a little trickier to predict this year.
Designs, specs, Lite mannequin, and Verizon availability
We can’t be absolutely certain the company’s first mid-range handset since 2015’s
OnePlus X will be joining the high-finish OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro to the mid-April launch occasion, however at least for the time being, that appears like a relatively safe bet.
Meanwhile, it be stunning much etched in stone that the
OnePlus 8 Lite will
adopt a modern gap punch design, triple rear-facing camera gadget, and a flat display measuring around 6.4 inches in diagonal and most probably sporting a blazing fast 90Hz refresh rate. That would now not sound very “lite”, which is why we’re now not relatively clear that’s how the affordable contrivance will be branded after all.

The latter two features have headlined many wishlists of hardcore OnePlus fans for a series of years now, so it be definitely nice to stare the company willing to finally adapt to industry standards and acknowledge to person feedback.
Then again, it remains to be considered if folk will also be happy with the inevitable sign hike of the feature-packed OnePlus 8 Pro. By the way, there are no guarantees on that entrance factual yet, although
most predictions so far circle the $450 mark for the OnePlus 8 Lite, with the “regular” OnePlus 8 and the unapologetically high-finish 8 Pro forecasted to start at around $550 and $700 respectively.
