OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to launch next spring, leaving enough time to perfect an enviable hardware configuration.
According to information obtained from reputable sources, OnePlus is preparing a smartphone offering as the Galaxy S11 series OnePlus 8 is going to have a Pro version with 120Hz screen, enough to match even the most demanding gaming phones. Less ambitious, the standard OnePlus 8 model will have a 90Hz screen, similar to the Pixel 4 series phones and the current OnePlus 7 Pro.
Expected in Q2-2020, the OnePlus 8 Pro only aligns with the trend towards high refresh rate, other rumors indicating for iPhone 12 the use of a 'ProMotion OLED' screen with refresh rate of image at 120Hz. Currently, this feature is only available on top-of-the-line gaming phones, such as the ASUS Rog Phone II.
The list of unconfirmed but very likely features also includes the Snapdragon 865 chipset and Android 10 version, which suits the new rules imposed by Google should be present on all newly launched devices after February 2020.
