It looks like OnePlus is finally set to officially announce the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Reports and rumors about the upcoming devices have been making the rounds for some weeks now, and while the Chinese firm has yet to officially dole out details regarding both device, more concrete evidence that suggests they exist have now surfaced online.
Eagle-eyed Mobile mobile tech-pundit and twitter user named @Divyom_DB earlier today spotted the device listed on Amazon’s India listing. No, the listing has only surfaced on Amazon’s Affiliate listing where the e-commerce seller was spotted providing an advertising fee on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
The device is listed under Amazon India’s affiliate page “NEW: Mobile Phones category with 1 percent Fixed Advertising Fee”. Other than the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, the listing also has the OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition, OnePlus 7T, and OnePlus 7 Pro. While the Oneplus 7 series has been around for a couple of months, the inclusion of the Oneplus 8 series is a signal that the device will become official soon.
Other than the Amazon India listing which has now been pulled down, a report from a few days back has it that the OnePlus 8 already cleared the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification with model number IN2011.
It was also reported that the Oneplus 8 series might be the Chinese firm’s first-ever smartphone to support wireless charging, as the firm a few days back officially became a member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) – the industry body behind the standardization of Qi wireless charging.
The design, and of course the technical specs details of the Oneplus 8, and Oneplus 8 Pro are still under the wraps, however, reports suggest both devices will feature a similar hole-punch display design, and maybe a Quad-camera setup on the flip side. A major highlight of the Oneplus 8 series will be the 120Hz QHD+ Fluid Display, while it will be powered by a flagship SoC, perhaps the SD 865.
The official launch date is still far from been announced, but not to worry, we will keep you updated as more specs details, and possible launch date surface,
