The OnePlus 8 Series launch is already in our knowledge. The Chinese Smartphone company is all set to launch its new upcoming series despite the coronavirus pandemic. The tech industry has been majorly hit due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As most of the smartphone companies have to either delay launches or have to rely on online launches, OnePlus is going ahead with its launch event for the OnePlus 8 smartphones on April 14.
OnePlus 8 series is confirmed to launch earlier next week globally. The company’s CEO Pete Lau took to Twitter to officially confirm the Pro variant in the series. In addition to this, he also confirmed that presence on ultra-wide cameras on the upcoming lineup. He also shared some camera samples of the OnePlus 8 Pro. In total he shared two pictures that were clicked using the upcoming smartphone being compared with another flagship phone, however, Lau did not mention the name of the smartphone used to click the pictures. But we doubt that these must be clicked using an Apple iPhone or a Samsung’s smartphone because these two companies are its biggest competitors. The pictures were taken under the dark condition using the night mode feature to get a perfect click. Pete Lau’s tweet reads, “Ultra wide that can get ultra close. One side here was taken with a OnePlus 8 Pro, the other with another flagship phone (I think you can probably tell which is which).”
