2 min read

The launch of the OnePlus 8 is just around the corner. As we wait, there have been leaks and rumors about the device. Already, we know that the device will come with 120Hz display. It has also been getting certifications. Now, the device, OnePlus‘s upcoming flagship, has appeared on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification portal. This means that the phone may be nearing its launch in India.

OnePlus will likely launch the OnePlus 8 in the first half of 2020. Before spotting it on the BIS certification portal, we earlier spotted it on China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT)’s database with model number IN2010. The listing showed some of the phone’s frequency bands.

On the BIS database, the device has a model number IN2011, quite different from what’s on MIIT’s database. The BIS listing, however, does not really say anything about the device’s specs. But we already have some leaks of the device.

From early leaks of the OnePlus 8 series, we see devices sporting punch-hole displays. The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to sport a QHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz. The display brightness will be capable of going up to 1,000 nits.

We expect OnePlus to launch the OnePlus 8 series in Q2 2020. This time, for the first time since the OnePlus X, we will be getting a budget Lite version of the OnePlus 8.
