The OnePlus 8 series is arguably the most anticipated smartphone launches of 2020. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro have been making headlines since the start of the year. And after much deliberation and discussion, the Chinese smartphone maker has finally confirmed the launch date of its OnePlus 8 series.

The company recently announced that it will unveil its latest lineup of flagship products – OnePlus 8 series – at a global online launch event on April 14. To recall, OnePlus had introduced the 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display last year and was the first to offers a QHD+ OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate.

With the OnePlus 8 series, the company is expected to offer 5G connectivity as standard and introduce a new 120Hz OLED display. The OnePlus 8 series is also expected to bring several improvements to camera performance. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC.

A recent leak claims that the OnePlus 8 Pro will have not one but two 48MP camera sensors on the back. The phone is tipped to use a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor with an f/1.78 aperture, while the ultrawide will use a 48MP f/2.2 ultrawide lens with a Sony IMX586 camera sensor.

Another rumour suggests that the OnePlus 8 Lite will arrive as the OnePlus Z. However, there's no confirmation that the OnePlus 8 Lite or OnePlus Z will launch on April 14.
