The OnePlus 8 is one of the most anticipated devices of 2020 and speculation has been rife over just when it would be announced with many expecting it to be pushed forwards, earlier than in previous years. A new poster has leaked showing the release date to be April 15.
The folks at ITHome have gotten their hands on a leaked poster which apparently shows the launch date of the OnePlus 8 series. The poster not only shows the date, 15 April, but also the curved hole-punch display. Just where this leak has come from is uncertain at this stage but it fits with all the rumours we have seen and heard in recent time — which does not make it true of course.
The OnePlus 8 is expected to arrive in two (or possibly three) variants, a normal and a Pro model, as it did last year. The displays are expected to be the same as that in the Find X2 Pro with 120Hz refresh rate at 2K resolution. Expect 5G support in all of their phones as well which will hopefully work on our 5G networks as well for those looking to import one.
The camera on the Pro is also expected to be a quad camera and yesterday we saw Robert Downey Jr show off one (accidentally of course……) confirming as such. The photo confirms three main lenses just as in last year’s model but also the presence of what looks to be a ToF depth sensing lens.
It is good to see a person who is paid to endorse a product actually using said product — it shows he believes in what he is endorsing. So many times celebrities have been caught out accidentally showing off something other than their endorsed product. But then why wouldn’t he. I cannot think of many (if any) smartphones I’d rather be endorsing than a OnePlus flagship.
Hopefully this is the year OnePlus finally make it to our shores. Their success in just about every other market of the world surely dictates that one day soon they will venture into our market in a meaningful way. Hopefully 2020 is that year. Stay tuned as we track the OnePlus devices now expected to arrive in just four short weeks.
