Yesterday, a report from TechRadar had suggested that the OnePlus 8 series could be unveiled in India in mid-April. Reliable leaker Ishan Agarwal has now claimed that the OnePlus 8 series will debut on April 14. Along with the launch date, the leaker has also shed some more light on the tech specs of the three upcoming OnePlus 8 series phones.
As I said yesterday, expect the launch to be Mid-April, particularly 14 April. https://t.co/pJePBATl4VAs I said yesterday, expect the launch to be Mid-April, particularly 14 April. https://t.co/pJePBATl4V— Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) March 4, 2020March 4, 2020
According to Agarwal, both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will feature AMOLED hole-punch displays with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Pro model will add dual-mode 5G as well as 30W wireless charging support. More impressively, the leaker claims the phone will support 30W reverse wireless charging as well.
The mid-range OnePlus 8 Lite is tipped to go on sale worldwide sometime in July this year. In the UK, Agarwal says the phone could be priced at £400, although it remains to be seen if it will be 5G-enabled like the other two OnePlus 8 series phones. While the flagship OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones will have a Snapdragon 865 under the hood, the OnePlus 8 Lite is rumored to be equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chipset.
Unsurprisingly, the OnePlus 8 Lite will be a downgrade over the flagship models in a few other areas as well. It is expected to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, 4,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging, and a triple-camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor.

The Pro looks awesome, bit I'm very curious what OnePlus will do with the pricing on it
Sorry, no more curved screens for me. Can't stand them any more. Will be looking for a FLAT screen to replace my 7 Pro. Otherwise a great phone.
