One Plus closed out its 2019 smartphone releases with the One Plus 7T and One Plus 7T Pro. However, we’re already hearing murmurings of the company’s next flagship. Yes, you are thinking right!! It’s all new One Plus 8 Pro.
This Article includes all the expected specifications and features of this phone and what will be the price of One Plus 8 Pro.
One Plus 8 Pro Name and Release Date
Given One Plus’ naming convention for its smartphones, we have every reason to believe the company’s flagship will be called the One Plus 8 Pro. The name lends some space for a regular One Plus 8, since we’ve seen “Pro” versions of the One Plus 7 and One Plus 7T.
As for a release date, One Plus normally announces its non-T phones during the springtime. The most recent non-T variant, the One Plus 7 Pro, launched in May 2019. As such, the One Plus 8 Pro could be poised for a spring 2020 launch.
One Plus 8 Pro Design
According to a leak from OnLeaks and 91Mobiles, the OnePlus 8 Pro won’t look too dissimilar from its predecessor. One main difference is with the punch-hole display, a departure from the One Plus 7 Pro and 7T Pro’s pop-up selfie camera.
Also new is the alleged addition of a 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor. We’ve seen the sensor on phones like the Huawei Mate 30 series, LG G8 ThinQ, Huawei P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, and more. The sensor is used to calculate depth and distance, as well as help with 3D imaging and AR.
The leak also showed a triple camera setup, a speaker grille next to the USB-C port, and an LED flash below the rear cameras.
Finally Specifications and features
According to a cryptic tweet from tipster Max J., the One Plus 8 Pro’s display will have a 120Hz refresh rate. Up until now, One Plus smartphones since the One Plus 7 Pro had 90Hz refresh rates.
We haven’t heard much else to substantiate Max J.’s claims, though 120Hz panels are becoming increasingly common among gaming smartphones. We could see a battery increase to help power the display, but we haven’t heard much about of its specs.
That’s all we know about the OnePlus 8 Pro so far. Let us know in the comments below if we missed anything or what you’re looking forward to the most from One Plus next smartphone!
