OnePlus 8 Series is all set to launch on April 14th. This has surprisingly coincided with the last date of the lockdown imposed in India. However, OnePlus has now itself come ahead and has given out the launch date of its 2020 flagship phones. The OnePlus 8 series is launching on April 14 and you can watch the launch event in India at 8:30pm via the livestream from OnePlus.
OnePlus has floated a new microsite that shares most of the details OnePlus is willing to share with the world prior to the launch of these phones. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are expected to launch at this event but OnePlus ahs given out the names yet. All OnePlus is saying right now is the 120Hz display and the 5G connectivity both of which have been previously shared by the company’s CEO Pete Lau.
A short teaser video has also been floated on Twitter and it seems to be confirming all the design leaks we saw earlier in the day. One of the phones will indeed have a ridge on the top of the frame. The Alert Slider, power buttons are present where they usually are on a OnePlus device. Moreover, the curved edges are also visible from the leaked teasers.
