A few smartphones are usually released annually by OnePlus, but in 2019 two variants on the first smartphone were announced: OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, as well as two “T” edition options for OnePlus 7 T and OnePlus 7 T Pro.
The Chinese company is therefore expected sometime in the first half of 2020 to introduce the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Here’s all we’ve heard and expected to see so far.
DATE AND COST OF RELEASE:
- May next year
- It is estimated to be around £549
In the first half of 2020, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will launch possibly On the 22nd of May. OnePlus 6 and on the 14th of May, OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are also expected to be released on the same day.
The OnePlus 7 T price starts at £ 549 and the Pro model begins at £ 699. The OnePlus 8 series is expected to remain around the same price point, probably with a slight increase.
On top of this phone, the OnePlus 7 T has a waterdrop notch like the 7, and the 7 T Pro has a front pop-up camera, for uninterrupted viewing. Early leaks from the OnePlus 8 range say that OnePlus will prefer to lay out a punch hole for its next devices.
We expect to continue with the alert slider and expect high-quality build up form, as well. There is a circular camera housing on its side and a vertical camera housing on the OnePlus 7 T Pro. Renders say that both versions of OnePlus 8 will choose the layout of a vertical lens.
The OnePlus 8 models will both be fitted with 90Hz refresh rates, such as OnePlus 7 Pro and both OnePlus 7 T, as all future smartphones will provide faster refresh rates.
All OnePlus 8 variants are also supposed to be AMOLED displays with the support for HDR10+ and a fingerprint sensor under the screen. The OnePlus 8 Pro will probably show a curved display, whereas the OnePlus 8 can display a flat screen and the OnePlus 8 Pro is also a little wider than the standard one.
While the capabilities of the OnePlus 8 series still are unclear, it seems that the Pro version provides a triple rear camera-probably a 3D depth sensor-an an additional sensor in contrast with the standard model.
