Not much is missing from the official presentation of the new OnePlus 8, even if on the net there are already those who seem to have fully anticipated the technical characteristics of the two terminals. We report them below, both those of the 8 Pro model, that is, the top of the range, and those of the younger brother, not Pro, who certainly does not give up exceptional characteristics.
First of all, the company officially confirmed the arrival of 30W wireless charging (only on the Pro model), which will allow you to recharge the terminal from 0 to 50% in just half an hour. The OnePlus 8 series should also gain certification for waterproofing, thus filling the gaps that users have reproached the brand to date.
Agarwal also tweeted the alleged data sheets of OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro providing some new information on the two terminals. Apparently, only the Pro model will obtain the IP68 protection rating and will support 30W wireless charging and 3W wireless reverse charging. The standard model 8 will be much more similar to the current 7T. The high-end phone will also use a 120Hz panel versus the non-pro model's 90Hz, along with the new LPDDR5 RAM standard. Both will have at least 8 GB of RAM under the hood.
Furthermore, both devices will be shipped with the same 30-watt Warp Charge charger supplied with the 2019 models and will use the old UFS 3.0, and not 3.1, memory chip, which offers improved writing speeds. In addition, the specifications suggest four rear cameras for OnePlus 8 Pro, two of which with a 48 MP sensor. The non-Pro device will instead have three rear cameras.
Reportedly, both devices will see a jump of nearly 500 mAh in battery capacity compared to current models. They will come in different colors, including a new green shade, which has been leaked in recent days.
Popular leaker Steve H. McFly (@OnLeaks) has released an alleged print rendering of OnePlus 8 Pro, right in the new green tone. Besides the color, there seems to be nothing new compared to the previous rumors; in short, it seems that there is no reason to doubt that OnePlus 8 Pro is different from how the leaks have now revealed it.
In any case, the appointment for the official presentation of the terminal expected for April 14th; the two devices will be unveiled through an online event, which can be followed on the official pages of the manufacturer.
