OnePlus 8 series is expected launch mid-April, and the rumored launch date is April 15th. Today the company has confirmed that its upcoming flagship phones will have 5G support. OnePlus said that began its 5G research as early as 2016, and added that the company has accumulated a wealth of experience and cutting-edge technology for tackling the commercialization and mass production of 5G smartphones.
The company showcased a 5G prototype smartphone at the MWC in February last year, and introduced its first OnePlus 7 Pro 5G phone in May. It introduced OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition in October.
OnePlus already confirmed Quad HD+ OLED ‘Fluid Display’ with a refresh rate of 120Hz, 240Hz touch sampling rate, 10-bit HDR for the OnePlus 8 Pro. We should know more details including the exact launch date for the OnePlus 8 series sometime later this month.
OnePlus Founder and CEO, Pete Lau, said:
This is a milestone both for OnePlus and our users. We’re proud to be among the first smartphone manufacturers to have full 5G line up for our next launch. OnePlus has achieved many firsts with 5G, and this time’s no exception.
We believe that following the dawn of the 5G era, the smartphone experience will go through a dramatic development. 5G’s low latency and enhanced cloud services will undoubtedly help us achieve a truly interconnected experience, while also providing exciting developments in areas like gaming, which are vitally important for OnePlus’ tech-savvy users.
