The long wait for flagship killers is finally coming to an end. After pushing the deadlines further and further, OnePlus has finally come to a decision to debut the notorious OnePlus 8 series in two weeks! The on-going pandemic has already pushed the launch date three times, but now it won’t be pushed any further. In fact, as per a recent tweet by OnePlus on March 30, it’s been officially confirmed that the series will officially make its debut on the 14th of April.
The leaks and rumors in the past couple of weeks have been really enticing. And I’m quite happy to say that the rumors are absolutely true to the bone. OnePlus released a teaser for the phone on their official twitter handle, the day before yesterday, confirming its launch and a couple of the major attributes.
Never held back, never slowed down—how do we implement this philosophy into our devices?

Details on the launch and whereabouts of the device will be following in the upcoming days. For now, let’s look at the prime attributes, some confirmed some not, of the OnePlus 8 series.
OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro: Expected Specs Analysis
The OnePlus 8 series fancies a refreshed look this time around; which I prefer a lot over the previous design. The subtle central vertical camera layout on the rear is definitely minimalistic and appealing. The hole-punch display up front is a little unsatisfactory though; I preferred the pop-up bezel-less setup.
Talking about displays, the OnePlus 8 features an FHD+ Fluid AMOLED 90Hz display setup scattered over a 6.55” canvas. Extending the size to 6.78”, resolutions to QHD+ and refresh rate to 120Hz, One Plus 8 Pro is just flawless.
OnePlus is quite dedicated to its “Fast and Smooth” user experience. So, staying true to this motto, OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be housing in the Snapdragon 865 chipset. Furthermore, this chipset is said to have been paired with a faster LPDDR5 8/12GB RAM setup. Moreover, there a huge 128/256GB internal embedded inside. And of course, there’s UFS 3.0 in there as well. Oh, and let’s not forget the Oxygen OS’s there too.
OnePlus has always been a little behind when it comes to the cameras. But hopefully, that won’t be the case this time around. The OnePlus 8 is set to arrive with a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor at the center of attention. An 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro sensor is a pretty decent setup for the base variant.
On the other hand, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be rocking a quad camera setup with the same 48MP sensor at the center. The ultrawide module has been bumped up to 48MP as well. Besides that, there’s an 8MP telephoto and a 5MP depth snapper. Both house in the same 16MP selfie snapper in the frontal cavity.
To top it all off, the OnePlus 8 has a decent 4300mAh capacitor that comes in with a 30W fast charging. OnePlus 8 Pro Bumps it up a notch by adding in extra 210mAh in the capacitor and introducing 30W wireless charging.
A New Challenger – OnePlus Z
Behind the scenes, OnePlus is plotting to bring back a new challenger to the One Plus 8 series. By the looks of it, the One Plus Z or One Plus 8 Lite is the continuation of the OnePlus X from 2015. Furthermore, the OnePlus Z is probably going to be a mid-range handset. Reports indicate that it will hosting a MediaTek SoC instead of the Snapdragon 865; which further points to the device being a mid-range handset.
The phone is expected to launch separately and a bit later than the other OnePlus 8 members. There have been some leaks and rumors based on the device but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. The official specs for the device should be unveiled in a couple of weeks’ time. So, do stick around for more details on the device.
