“OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launch timeframe falls in line with that of their predecessors — the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro were unveiled in May earlier this year”
The recent OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro leaked renders showed off the upcoming design change, with a punch-hole display on the front to accommodate the selfie snapper instead of a notch or pop-up module. On the rear, the phones will retain the same vertically arranged camera module with LED flash as the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro. While the OnePlus 8 Pro will reportedly rock a quad-camera setup, the standard OnePlus 8 just has a triple camera setup. Both the phones will have an in-display fingerprint sensor for security and display with 90Hz refresh rate. Now, noted tipster Max J on Twitter claims that the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro would launch in Q2 2020.

This timeframe falls in-line with its predecessors — the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were unveiled in May earlier this year. This means a May launch will not be put of question. However, the tipster didn’t divulge into any hardware details about the OnePlus flagships.
OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro specifications
The OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a slightly bigger 6.65-inch display, while its younger sibling OnePlus 8 is tipped to have a 6.5-inch screen. OnePlus already confirmed all its future phones will have 90Hz refresh rate. In terms of design, the Alert Slider and Power button will be on the right edge, while the Volume button will be on the left. The USB Type-C port, SIM tray and redesigned speaker grills are at the bottom. There is only a mic at the top. While the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to measure 165.3 x 74.4 x 8.8mm in size, OnePlus 8 has 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1mm dimensions.
As for the specifications, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro should be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 865 SoC with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. Both the flagships are likely to run Android 10 with OxygenOS skin. There could be 5G variants as well, in addition to 4G. Rumours also suggest that the phones might support wireless charging for the first time in the company’s history. We should know more information in the days to come.
