OnePlus 8 – Release date, price and news

OnePlus 8 is one of the most anticipated smartphones in 2020, along with OnePlus 8 Pro – and possibly OnePlus 8 Lite, as rumors believe us.

One year was an interesting year for OnePlus, to share a line between the key initiative models at a mid-range price in OnePlus 7 and the very glossy (and expensive) budget of the OnePlus budget 7. Those with additional features were filtered in the 7T versions. later in the year, as follows a traditional tick-tock schedule of the phone manufacturer.

Accordingly, we expect the new phones to arrive in early 2020 to perform a similar technical jump. But what will be in the OnePlus series?

Moreover, we can speculate on some things. For example, there were 5G versions at OnePlus Pro 7 and at the Pro 7T both, so we can expect Pro 5G Pro OnePlus – especially as these high-level wireless networks start covering more. You will find everything else suspected below.

Cut on the hunt

  • What is that? The next one smartphone OnePlus
  • When is it out? April 2020 possibly
  • What will it cost? More than $ 599 / £ 549 / AU is probably $ 874 for OnePlus 8
  • Release date and price of OnePlus 8/8

Due to the loose windows that OnePlus has followed for years, we can expect that OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 will launch in late spring or early summer – the final two non-T versions came out in May. 2018 and 2019, respectively, in mid-May 2020 is a guess.

We are expecting at least two phones, but probably three of them, and in view of the prices of their predecessors, we do not expect that the OnePlus 8 standard will cost less than $ 599 / £ 549 / AED 1,949 (approx. AU $ 868).

Likewise, we do not expect that OnePlus Pro 8 will cost less than $ 699 / £ 699 / AED 2,699 (about AU $ 1,010). However, you now speak on OnePlus 8 Lite, which could be a cheaper option, although no one guesses how much there would be.

Rumors and leakage OnePlus 8 and 8 pro

Here, we have compiled a list of everything we heard of the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8 Lite. We have organized it by feature, so you can easily find what you need.

OnePlus 8 design and display

Although the OnePlus 7 Pro introduced a self-visual camera that allowed a non-cultivated front bezel, the OnePlus 7 – did not keep the name of its predecessor.

Early leakage suggests that OnePlus 8 hole will take a simple hole in the upper left corner for the front camera. This leak recommended that the Pro would decrease from 6.67 inches to 6.5 inches, or perhaps even 6.44.

This may also be the case, as leakage indicates that the camera has been removed to make space for other features such as wireless charges, but it is easy to comment on other possible reasons: There may have been reliability associated with the upward issues mechanism (we haven’t heard about any).

This mechanism may be a vector of water and dust to enter – unlike other phones, OnePlus handsets, which are almost industry standard, do not have an IP dust/water resistance rating.

We have seen how the front camera could look at the exhaust sketches below, displaying a single-lens lens and dual-lens bag, and probably the dual-lens of the OnePlus Pro 8.

The images above show a miniature bezel and a rear camera of a quadrant lens, but as with all leaks, we would give them a pinch of salt. One huge leak, which informed much of this article, suggests that the phones will not have three rear cameras.

The large leakage suggests that a 6.7-inch screen at OnePlus Pro 8 will have a 120Hz renewal rate, and a 6.44-inch screen at OnePlus 8 and 8 Lite will have a 90Hz renewal rate. Each has a Super AMOLED display.

In addition to OnePlus 8 and OnePlus Pro 8 (or whatever they send like), we might get OnePlus 8 Lite as well, because only such a phone is now exhausting.

The rendering above shows how it might look, and the source (@OnLeaks – someone who leaves reliable) saying that it is likely to have a 6.4 or 6.5-inch screen.

This would be less than the OnePlus 7T range, but it is not necessarily smaller than the rest of the OnePlus range if another leak is accurate.

It also appears to be 8.6mm thick, placed between the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro on that front side and is shown as two rear cameras and a whole camera on the front. It is not known what the specs are, but this could be the cheapest OnePlus phone for a while.

OnePlus 8 Camera

A leak indicates that the OnePlus 8 Pro will introduce the fourth rear camera, which will introduce a Time of Flight depth sensor into three key lenses, the ultra-wide lenses, and telephoto, which are still vertically aligned in the center. But we heard other rumors questioning the presence of this additional lens.

The above-mentioned leakage suggests that 60MP cameras by OnePlus Pro 8 and 8, and 16MP on each, will then have 13MP on the Pro and 12MP on the device base. However, this leak did not mention their lenses.

Then, the scenario appears to have a 48MP main camera by OnePlus Lite 8, then the same 16MP and the 12MP combo as the OnePlus 8.

Then, on the front side, all models appear to have 32MP cameras but save the Lite, which will have a 16MP sensor.

At the moment, we do not know enough about lenses but are probably an ultra-wide lens and telephoto which will contain the 16MP snappers and 12MP / 13MP.

OnePlus 8 battery life

The huge leakage suggests that OnePlus 8 will have a 4,500mAh Pro battery, while the others will have 4,000mAh power packages. These are all reasonable amounts for smartphones, and you will probably see them three days of use.

We do not know about current charging speeds, but OnePlus often meets its Warp Charge technology, so there may be great news to come forward.

OnePlus 8 specifications and features

We heard that the 865 snapdragon chips will come at Pro OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, which will be cutting edge processors with unrivaled speeds.

Then there appears to be a MediaTek 1000 processor at the OnePlus 8 Lite, another chipset announced that it is unlikely to have the same speeds as the Snapdragon. It is expected that it will be quite good for daily use, but if snappy speeds are important to you, then maybe the Lite is not right.
That news comes from the aforementioned huge leak, so it might be wrong, but the chipset Lite would not be surprised to have it.

Another important piece of information from this leak is that OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro may have 5G phones or possibly be in 5G versions only. As 5G phones are still becoming more widespread, the latter is likely to be second, but we would not make the possibility of counting a 4G phone.

 
 

What we want to see in Oneplus 8

1. Improved cameras

OnePlus 7 Pro introduced the third ultrawide lens, like many other smartphones issued in 2019, and was good: the additional range offers a more flexible photo series. But it can be better.
Specifically, we would like an enhanced Nightscape, the company’s night mode – and yes, it’s completely because the iPhone 11 and Google Pixel 4 raised the bar again this year. Clarity, color vitality, and general brightness are being achieved in spectacular stages, and we would like to see Nightscape coming up.

As long as we are asking, we want some of the methods that come standard in other phones too. The new Macro Mode introduced in the OnePlus 7T is neat, but we also like to have stood such as panoramic and slot. Heck, we even love selfies.

2. Wireless charging

Truly, there’s a wireless charge without delay, but it’s still a convenient addition to any phone. It is more convenient for your phone to overtake down one of the best wireless chargers than to insert it and take it out every time you need something to check.

And while it is only a decorative feature, the ability to lend a wireless charge to some of your phone’s ability to another device is convenient (in theory, anyway.).

3. Unlock face

OnePlus 8

Although fingerprinting is important, it’s nice not to have to pinch your finger every time you want to quickly check something on your phone. Since Android 10 allows you to unlock your face, it would be great to have this feature in addition to (and not replace, as in Pixel 4) a fingerprint scanner.

4. 5G in the OnePlus base model 8

While both generations of the OnePlus phones in 2019 were version 5G – the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G and the rarer OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition – both were the highest models of Pro phones. While they are certainly more affordable than other 5G phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, they were significantly more expensive compared to the basic OnePlus models.

We would like to see the 5G revolution come to the masses in what will surely be the cheap but highly costly setup OnePlus is known for. While most 5G phones were sold as premium devices, the Moto Z3 and Moto Z4 delivered decent (though not record) speeds with the 5G Moto Mod; if we could internalize it in OnePlus 8, it would be a long way to get 5G to people who don’t want to spend the top dollar.

5. 3.5mm headphone jack

We might hear like a broken record here, but we like the 3.5mm jack on all phones and we were sad to see it going with the OnePlus 6T. Even though most of the industry is over, we still long for a day when we can plug our pretty headphones into our phones.
