According to the rumors, OnePlus was said to be working on a new mid-range smartphone. It turns out the rumors were right and according to an announcement by OnePlus, they will be officially revealing the handset, known as the OnePlus Nord, on the 21st of July through augmented reality.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently revealed that the company would be returning to the budget phone market. While Lau did not dive into specifics, it was largely believed that this could take the form of the OnePlus Z, the successor to the OnePlus X which could also be priced more affordably than the OnePlus 8.
Right now, two of the hottest flagship Android phones in the market right now would probably have to be the OnePlus 8 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. This means that some of you are probably torn between either device, and thanks to a video uploaded onto YouTube by PhoneBuff, hopefully it can help you arrive at a decision.
There are various ways gamers can improve themselves in the games they play. It could be hardware where having a more responsive keyboard or mouse can help, better audio, a faster computer, and so on. Frame rates have also been found to help improve your gaming experience, and soon OnePlus 8 owners might have an advantage.
The other day we reported that it was discovered one of the features of the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera is the ability for it to gain “X-ray vision” through one of the filters. This basically utilized the camera’s infrared sensors to create an effect, in which one of the side-effects was that it could see through very thin pieces of plastic and clothing.
We’re not sure if this was an intended feature, but it seems that users of the OnePlus 8 Pro are discovering that their smartphone camera has pseudo X-ray vision capabilities. Yup, if you own the handset, using the camera’s “Photochrom” color filter mode will actually allow you to see through certain objects.
Thinking about getting your hands on the recently announced OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro? We know that some of you can’t wait to get the device and unbox it for yourself, but the good news is that if you’re stuck at home waiting for it to arrive, or if you’re simply curious, you can actually go ahead and use augmented reality to unbox the phone.
OnePlus had initially started out as a company that made and sold affordable smartphones. However, over the years, the company has slowly started to increase the prices of its devices, and it seems that the upcoming OnePlus 8 series will be no different, at least according to the latest leak.
If you’ve been eagerly anticipating the OnePlus 8 series, then you might have heard the rumors that the company could be planning for an official launch in April. Turns out, the rumors were right because OnePlus has since officially confirmed on Twitter that the OnePlus 8 series will be announced on the 14th of April.
Back in the day, smartphones were only released in solid color finishes. However, these days we’re starting to see more funky and colorful finishes, and it looks like OnePlus will be adopting such a design.
OnePlus has been steadily teasing that they are working on a display that offers a refresh rate of 120Hz, and now thanks to a leaked photo obtained by the folks at True-Tech, they have published what appears to be the OnePlus 8 Pro where based on the screenshot we’re seeing, it looks like the 120Hz display has been confirmed.
OnePlus has been teasing that they are working on a 120Hz display. Whether or not it will make it into the OnePlus 8 remains to be seen, but they are definitely working on something. In a recent post made on Twitter, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau shared a demo video which showed off the company’s 120Hz display.
Not too long ago, OnePlus confirmed that they will be showing off a new concept phone at CES 2020. Not much is known about the phone, but in a new teaser video shared by the company, they are hinting that the phone will be sporting an “invisible” camera and also what they are calling “color-shifting glass technology”.
Next year, we expect that OnePlus will have a couple of new phones in the works. This is expected to come in the form of the OnePlus 8 and later in the year, the OnePlus 8T. However, it seems that OnePlus could have at least one more device to show off in the form of a concept handset.
