How to watch OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro launch

OnePlus 8 series launch: what to expect

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will be unveiled today in a virtual event hosted by the company to show off their next generation of mobile phones. Alongside, OnePlus has confirmed that it’s also introducing the new Warp Charge 30 wireless charging dock for the phones and a new Bullets Wireless earphones.

The new phones by OnePlus have been leaked numerous times in the lead up to the launch and key specifications of both the phones are out in the open. OnePlus 8 series has been tipped to launch starting at 719 Euros which is a bit on the high side but as the new phones come packing a top-of-the-line chipset with 5G support, prices are most likely going to increase even in other markets.

OnePlus also recently revealed that its new phones use fifth-generation matte frosted glass on the rear that is similar to the Silk White finish seen on some OnePlus cases. The phone has also broken as many as 13 records on DisplayMate tests and has been awarded an A+ rating by the lab.

The Warp Charge 30 wireless charging dock supports 30W fast wireless charging and is also compatible with Qi chargers. The presence of a wireless charger in itself is a confirmation that one variant of the upcoming phones will support wireless charging, something which the company has stayed away in the past.

Additionally, OnePlus has also confirmed that it’s going to announce a new pair of Bullets Wireless earphones that offer 10 hours worth of battery in 10 minutes. All this and possibly more will be unveiled by OnePlus in the next few hours with the phones set to go on sale in China from April 17. Indian availability and pricing isn't known yet due to the nation-wide lockdown in place to curb the spread of COVID-19.
