    The OnePlus 8 Pro will most likely come with the standard 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A second option will probably have 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage for those of us who love to carry a lot of photos and videos.

    Another interesting feature is an official IP68 waterproof rating. That’s something we haven’t seen in previous OnePlus devices.

    OnePlus 8: Fresh Renders Reveal New ‘Interstellar Glow’ Colour Variant

    New colour variants for the OnePlus 8 are pretty much unofficially confirmed. Now, all we need is for OnePlus to just announce the pricing and availability of the new series.

    LAST UPDATED: MARCH 30, 2020, 11:24 AM IST

    Kunal Khullar

    The month of April is upon us, and while the world seems to be united in fighting against the Covid-19 pandemic, OnePlus is about to refresh its smartphone lineup. The OnePlus 8 series is expected to launch on April 15 and it's about time as most of the company’s have already launched their flagships.

    We’ve already heard about the specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro and there is news that we might even see a OnePlus 8 Lite. Just a couple of days back we saw some alleged press renders of the OnePlus 8 confirming a new Green colour option for this year’s ‘Flagship Killer.’ Now some fresh renders have dropped revealed yet another colour option. If you remember, a set of leaked specifications for the OnePlus 8 mentioned a colour variant called ‘Glow.’ Well, it seems that OnePlus is going to take some inspiration from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s Aura Glow colour (at least the name) and launch the OnePlus 8 in this gradient of sorts finish.

    The renders have been leaked by reliable tipster Roland Quandt from WinFuture, showing the new OnePlus 8 in three colours- Interstellar Aura, Glacial Green and Onyx Black. The names were confirmed by Ishan Agarwal on Twitter. The renders also confirm the fact that the new OnePlus 8 is going to have a similar design as the OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro. The company, however, is not going to make use of a pop-up camera this time and rely on a punch-hole display design.

    As per leaked information, OnePlus is finally bringing IP68 certification. Tipster Ishan Agarwal recently shared a list of specifications which suggests that the OnePlus 8 Pro will be fully waterproof. Sadly, the vanilla OnePlus 8 will not. Agarwal’s list of specifications also says that both the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will be powered by the new Snapdragon 865 chipset, and possibly offer 5G. Both will come with AMOLED panels but the Pro will feature a larger 6.85-inch QHD+ panel with 120Hz refresh rate while the OnePlus 8 will have a 6.55-inch FHD+ panel with 90Hz refresh rate. Both will come with the option of 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage and 8GB or 12GB RAM memory options. Notably, the Pro will offer the new LPDDR5 RAM, while the other will continue to use LPDDR4X.

    OnePlus 8 Chinese launch set for April 16

    31 March 2020

    The eagerly-anticipated OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are right around the corner now. After more than a few setbacks and uncertainties, OnePlus finally seems to have settled on announcement dates for the phones. You can tune in for the global event live stream on YouTube on April 14 at 3PM UTC. As per a new official Weibo post, the OnePlus 8 generation will make a debut in its home country on April 16. Understandably, with another live online event. This one scheduled for 7PM local time.

    As for the OnePlus 8 Lite, which we now know could come under the OnePlus Z moniker, it is still expected a bit later than its flagship siblings. We can’t really speculate on what other potential devices OnePlus intends to show at its Chinese event either. We do, however, have teasers, suggesting the global April 14 event will see the OnePlus TV 55 Q1 Pro's international market release.

     OnePlus 8 (left) and OnePlus 8 Pro (right)

    Both the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro have been frequenting the rumor mill for quite some time now.

    Official renders are already available and so are specs. The vanilla OnePlus 8 is expected to feature a 6.55-inch, FullHD+ Fluid AMOLED display, with a 90Hz refresh rate.

    The OnePlus 8 Pro will bump that refresh rate up to 120Hz on a 6.78-inch QHD+ panel, as a headlining feature. As per the latest insider scoop on the camera department, the OnePlus 8 Pro will use the Sony IMX689 48MP, f/1.78 sensor for its main snapper, just like the Oppo Find X2 Pro. Alongside it will be Sony IMX586, 48MP f/2.2 ultrawide unit and an 8MP f/2.44 telephoto camera.

    On the flip side, both phones are expected to pack the same flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset, complete with 5G connectivity. 8GB RAM plus 128GB storage and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage are the likely memory tiers.

    The two phones are expected to stick to OnePlus 30W Warp Charge tech on 4,300 mAh and 4,510 mAh batteries, respectively. The Pro could also feature wireless and reverse wireless charging, although, rumors have been a mixed bag on that front. Same goes for official IP68 ingress protection rating.

    This is interesting, looks like most of the specs are already covered.
    As OnePlus is all about the details, here's my take on what's gonna improve further.

    Improved Reading Mode: Better color temperature, brighter display will make the reading experience e-ink link.

    And better haptics engine, an improved haptics will make the software, gorgeous 120hz come to life.

    Source: My educated guess based on years being a oneplus user.

    can't wait for the launch #neversettle

    #OnePlus8Pro with 6.78" Super Fluid Curved 120hz Display is going to have more accurate colours than before. It will also feature an MEMC, HDR10+ (1400-nits) with always on 10bit HDR. OxygenOS will get even more Smoother & Faster, with more optimisations. Haptics 2.0 will be [e]1f44c[/e]! https://t.co/yIpPbjP8Wi
