Today, on Twitter, OnePlus sent out a simple yet exciting message—“The OnePlus8 Series is coming. April 14.” That’s likely the day OnePlus will announce the phone, not the day you can buy it. But there’s a lot to look forward to, including rumors of wireless charging, the confirmation of a 120 Hz display, and two or possibly three phone variants.
The OnePlus tweet included a quick video (click on it below to see it) giving small glimpses of the upcoming phone(s). It also mentions the upgraded screen tech we want to see to believe. In our reviews of the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T, we praised those devices for their 90 Hz displays (among other things), so we’re looking to see how much better the tech can get.
The #OnePlus8Series is coming. April 14.

The fine folks at 9to5Google have kept up on all the latest OnePlus rumors, and it sounds like we’ll get at least two phones (which the tweet all but confirms), but there even be a third option. Additionally, you may see wireless charging, certified water resistance, and some stunning new colors.
We expect to see some of these features reserved for the most expensive variant of the phone options, so we’ll be keeping an eye out on what you lose by spending less. It’s a lot of new features too, so pricing is something to watch. OnePlus has a track record of offering 80% (or more) of a flagship phone for nearly half the price, so we’re expecting to see something affordable.
We’ll know on April 14th, and as soon we do you will too.
