The OnePlus 8 Pro is packing a number of “firsts” for a OnePlus smartphone. We presently have idea it is the initial OnePlus phone with support for wireless charging. We Furthermore know it is the initial to have a MEMC chip that upscales videos and games from 24fps to a higher frame rate.
A complete spec banner leak by Winfuture.de has revealed the smartphone will Additionally be the initial with an IP68 certification.
Even though few of OnePlus’s previous smartphones are waterproof to an extent, OnePlus has never gotten an IP certification for any of its devices. If you remember, OnePlus said you can dunk the OnePlus 7 Pro in a bucket of water even though it doesn’t have an IP-rating. In the video ad, they explained why the smartphone does not have an IP-rating and that is because it costs money what they would have to include things like in the cost of handcraft and then pass on to buyers.
With the OnePlus 8 Pro getting an IP-rating, it means buyers will be paying extra for the phone. Yes, we presently expect the new smartphone will cost more compared to its predecessor. However, it Additionally means OnePlus can further justify the higher price tag with the IP-rating.
Sadly, the OnePlus 8 does not have an IP-rating but it will be nice to have idea if it is water-resistant to an extent.
The OnePlus 8 series releases on April 14, a month earlier than the release date of the OnePlus 7 series last year. OnePlus will moreover announce a couple of new accessories which include a wireless charger and a pair of fresh Bullets Wireless earphones.
Wait! Carl Pei teased a power bank back in February however we have not heard anything new. Let’s hope OnePlus surprises us with a new power bank with support for Warp Charge.
