What to expect from the OnePlus 8 launch
We’ve covered all the details of what to expect in our round-up of the OnePlus 8 leaks and rumours right here, but to summarise we’re looking at two devices launching as flagship OnePlus 8 devices, sitting on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, with 5G.
Some of the official details tell us that there will be a 120Hz display, there will be 30W wireless charging and that the display is supposed to be really high quality. This has all been confirmed by OnePlus itself.
Then you have an array of cameras on the rear of the phone, with rumours suggesting that there’s going to be a 48-megapixel main camera on both devices, supported by a range of other cameras. Is this going to be the phone where OnePlus really raises its game?
You’ll be able to find out all the details on 14 April.
