OnePlus is pushing forward the launch by almost a month
We know OnePlus launches regular flagships in the first half of the year and the 'T' versions in the second. For context, the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 7 duo went official in May. By that logic, the OnePlus 8 series was expected to arrive sometime around May.
However, the company is pushing forward the launch by almost a month, signaling a strategy change.
Will we also see OnePlus 8 Lite alongside the flagships?
Meanwhile, OnePlus is also working on a low-cost OnePlus 8 Lite and we have a fair idea of what to expect from this budget handset. However, Agarwal is unsure if the Lite model would be unveiled alongside the flagship models.
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile processor. As for memory and storage, we expect the phones to offer up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
