Despite a globally declared lockdown to tackle the spread of coronavirus, OnePlus is pushing ahead with the launch of the OnePlus 8 series on April 14. It will be streamed live to screens directly and to build hype for the upcoming devices, OnePlus is teasing the hardware bit by bit. CEO Pete Lau wrote a post detailing the internals of the OnePlus 8 phones that includes the latest RAM and storage modules and the Snapdragon 865. Now, a new release sent out by the company claims the OnePlus 8’s display has been awarded an A+ grade by DisplayMate.

DisplayMate too tweeted out the award given to the OnePlus 8 days ahead of its launch. At least one of the phones in the series apparently broke 13 display performance records during DisplayMate’s testing. While that doesn’t really tell you what the display will be like, it’s possible that the viewing experience will be pretty amazing. But then again, DisplayMate has a penchant for awarding A+ to most flagships from Apple and Samsung.

In other news, CEO Pete Lau told Business Insider that the OnePlus 8 series smartphone won’t cost more than $1,000 (Rs 76,000 roughly). That does indicate that OnePlus will maintain relative affordability compared to the premium offerings from Samsung this year. Being 5G smartphones with premium hardware, that could be saying something.

Having said that, the OnePlus 8 may cost much more than the OnePlus 7T series. The Snapdragon 865 is indeed more expensive to procure and the added 5G capabilities will hike up the cost of production. That while you won’t be able to do anything with the 5G bit here in India yet.

The recent transmission of information is quite in line with OnePlus’ antics before launch. The company tends to release bite-sized information about its upcoming devices in anticipation to the launch. And it’s no different this time. We’ll catch you tomorrow with another official leak from the smartphone brand.
