OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro Set to Launch Early According to Reports

By Shabana Arif on at

OnePlus' next series of phones are on the way, but rather than debuting in the summer, recent rumours point to a release months earlier than that.

Twitter leaker Ishan Agarwal has shared an update saying that the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are expected to launch in either late March or April, bucking the trend of a May/June release. He doesn't seem to know whether that will also apply to the OnePlus Lite, and also mentions a new green colourway for both handsets.

The last smartphone OnePlus rolled out was the 7T series in October last year, although we thought the OnePlus 7T Pro was a bit of a pointless non-update. The March/April date isn't that out of left field based on the companies' six monthly launches - after all, last year's OnePlus 7 made its debut in May, 2019.

The most recent rumours around the upcoming OnePlus 8 suggests we'll see wireless charging at last, and possibly 5G. We already know that the OnePlus 8 Pro will sport a 120Hz display. CEO Pete Lau loves to tease fans of the brand so no doubt he'll have a few other titbits for us before the official reveal, whenever it is. [Trusted Reviews]
