It’s official: the OnePlus 8 range is being announced on April 14. The company itself has now said as much, as well as confirming a few other details about the range.


What do we know until now?

Display

A QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. That’s the same refresh rate as the Samsung Galaxy S20 range offers and should ensure interactions feel silky smooth. An IP68 rating for water resistance and comes in blue, black and green shades.

The company also promises a “full series of 5G devices”, “clearer displays” and “faster performance”, and that the OnePlus 8 series will be its “most powerful and beautiful smartphone series ever”.

Processor and camera

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro could use a top-end Snapdragon 865 chipset, these phones are equipped with quad cameras with 48+48+8+5 MP camera configuration and up to 12GB of RAM.

OnePlus 8 Lite will have a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 processor, a chipset that won't have the same speeds as the Snapdragon. It will hopefully be good enough for everyday use, but if snappy speeds are important for you, then maybe the Lite isn't right.

Pricing

The OnePlus 8 Pro price is rumoured to be set between roughly Rs. 76,000-76,900 in Europe for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration, while its 12GB RAM + 256GB storage model could be priced between roughly Rs. 83,500-84,400.

The OnePlus 8, on the other hand, is said to carry a price tag of between roughly Rs. 59,500-60,400 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option in Europe. However, the top-end 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant of the OnePlus 8 is rumoured to be priced between roughly Rs. 67,800-68,700.

Battery

OnePlus 8 Pro will have a 4,510mAh battery with 30W wired and wireless charging and 3W reverse wireless charging, and the standard model will have a 4,300mAh battery with 30W charging but no wireless charging.
