OnePlus has announced the launch of its new OnePlus 8 series flagship smartphones. The smartphones expected to be launched are the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. The Coronavirus pandemic has forced most of the companies to either hold their launch events online, or postpone them until the situation gets better. OnePlus will be live streaming the online launch event on April 14th, at 11:00 AM EST, 8:30 PM IST and 4:00 PM BST. The launch can be streamed live on OnePlus official website and YouTube.
OnePlus has also confirmed that the smartphones will feature a newly designed display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Pete Lau, Founder and CEO, OnePlus said “With the OnePlus 8 series, we’re excited to introduce our most powerful and beautiful smartphone series ever, combining blazing-fast 5G capabilities, specially engineered high refresh rate displays, and OnePlus’ signature powerful performance setup.
