OnePlus is committed to providing a “fast and smooth” user experience. To achieve this, it needs the right mix of hardware and software, says CEO Pete Lau in a post on the company’s official forum where he talks about improvements the company has made to its R&D team for the upcoming OnePlus 8 Series phone lineup.
To give the new OnePlus 8 Series phones the strength and speed it needs to make the software inside work well and smoothly, OnePlus has made clear that it has decided to equip its new flagship phones with the latest flagship Snapdragon 865 processor from Qualcomm, the fast UFS 3.0 memory chip, and the fast LPDDR5 RAM. Returning to UFS 3.0 storage, it is able to reach speeds of up to 1700MB per second at the read and write level. As for the LPDDR5 RAM, it promises to deliver a speed of up to 6400 Mbps unlike the current RAM LPDDR4X, which has a speed of 4266 Mbps.
In general, we are supposed to know more about the new OnePlus 8 Series phones on the 14th of April, when it will be officially announced.
When it comes to the technical specifications of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro phones, it was rumored last week that both phones will use the latest Snapdragon 865 processor from Qualcomm, and will support the independent and non-independent 5G networks. Moreover, both will come pre-installed with Google’s newest Android 10 system, and with 8GB or 12GB of random memory, as well as 128GB or 256GB of internal memory. However, the OnePlus 8 Pro will feature LPDDR 5 RAM, while OnePlus 8 will continue to use LPDDR4X RAM.
Another similarity between OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro is that both will have 16-megapixel front cameras, and will support 30W fast charging despite the fact that the OnePlus 8 Pro will also support 30W wireless charging and 3W reverse wireless charging.
The new leak revealed to us as well that the OnePlus 8 phone will include three cameras in the background with 48 megapixels for the basic camera and 16 megapixels for the second camera and 2 megapixels for the third camera, while the OnePlus 8 Pro will have four cameras with 48 megapixels for the basic camera and 48 megapixels also for the second camera and accurately 8 megapixels for the third camera and accurately 5 megapixels for the fourth and last camera.
Aside from the cameras, it has been rumored as well now that the OnePlus 8 will feature a 4300mAh battery while the OnePlus 8 Pro will feature a larger 4510mAh battery and will carry an IP68 certification which means it will be water and dust resistant.
