Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is scheduled to announce its latest flagship series, the One Plus 8 and the 8 Pro, on April 14th.
All prior leaks have suggested that OnePlus would unveil the phones somewhere in mid-April, and it looks like they were correct. The event will take place online at 11am ET.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is rumoured to have a 6.78-inch ‘Super Fluid Curved’ display and a 120Hz refresh rate according to a recent leak. It’s also expected to have 128GB or 256GB of storage, along with 8GB or 12GB of RAM.
The 8 Pro’s display will have more accurate colours than past phones. It will also feature Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation (MEMC). MEMC is a form of motion smoothing, which is a technology that artificially adds frames to video to play it back at a higher refresh rate.

Rumours also indicate that it will have wireless charging, and a Time of Flight sensor for 3D face recognition and a 4,500 mAh battery.
Other rumours suggest a Snapdragon 865 processor and a hole-punch screen for the front-facing camera. The phones are reportedly going to come in three colours: black, teal and a ‘Glow’ colour scheme.
There have also been rumours about a budget-friendly OnePlus 8 Lite, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
