It has been months that we are getting multiple leaks about the One Plus 8 series.

OnePlus 8 will be a powerful device that will get hardware better than OnePlus 8 Lite but will not have all the features of OnePlus 8 Pro. So let's check out the features and specs One Plus 8 will be incorporating.
Overview of OnePlus 8
OnePlus 8 will be a successor of the OnePlus 7 series. Just a month ago, OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro have released in Nepal which are the successor of OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus phones are popular in Nepal due to their reasonable pricing of better hardware and software. And without a doubt, OnePlus 8 will also be famous in Nepal as it will be featuring Snapdragon 865 Chipset, 120Hz AMOLED panel, and Triple rear camera setup.

Display and Design
The OnePlus 8 will have a slightly different form factor than its previous generation. At the front, we will see a curve AMOLED panel with a punch hole for a front-facing camera. While at back, the identical design will be followed, similar to OnePlus 7T Pro. The latest information highlighted that OnePlus 8 will have a 6.5-inch Fluid AMOLED panel at front with QHD+ resolution that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. To save the battery, users will have the option to reduce the refresh rate to either 90Hz or 60 Hz.

Chipset and Performance
According to the available information, OnePlus 8 will have Snapdragon 865 Chipset coupled with Adreno 650 GPU. This chipset is 25% faster than the previous generation SD855 chipset and 20% power efficient. It also supports 5G connectivity, but sadly we will not be able to take benefits of 5G connectivity as there is no infrastructure build to provide the 5G connectivity. There will be 8/128GB and 8/256GB variant of OnePlus 8 which uses faster RAM management and Storage technology for better and smooth performance.
There will be a triple rear camera setup in OnePlus 8, similar to what we have seen in the OnePlus 7 series. Similarly, there will be a 16 MP front-facing camera embedded in the top left corner of the display. The rear camera will have a 48MP main sensor with an 8MP telephoto lens that is capable of 3X optical zoom. Additionally, a 16MP ultrawide sensor will also be present in OnePlus 8. With this camera hardware, Laser Autofocus and software improvement, users will be able to capture 4K (2160p @30/60fps), FHD (1080p up to 240fps) and HD slow-motion video. The image and video quality will also be increased.
Battery and Other Features
Latest information state that OnePlus 8 Pro will have a 4500 mAh battery that supports 50W fast charging technology. But no official information regarding battery capacity has been released. Surely, the battery capacity will be bigger than 4000 mAh but the exact capacity is still unknown. And regarding fast charging improved Warp Charging technology will be provided to reduce the charging time.
Additionally, there will still be an optic under-display fingerprint sensor. Similarly, about the connectivity, OnePllus 8 will have Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 ax), Bluetooth V5.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC, etc. This time OnePlus might provide wireless charging features and IP certification for water and dust resistant for its upcoming OnePlus 8 series.
