As we inch closer to the launch of the OnePlus 8 series, slated to be announced on April 14, we are starting to learn more about the devices. Last week, we saw some of the key specifications for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, with in-depth camera specifications for the OnePlus 8 Pro and leaked official renders for the regular OnePlus 8. Today, we have new leaks from the famous tipster Ishan Agarwal (and 91mobiles), which suggest that the company is planning to launch a new pair of wireless earphones, dubbed OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z, very soon. Additionally, the tipster suggests that the company will also introduce the OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger at the OnePlus 8 series launch. Here’s what we know.
Although we are learning about the launch of OnePlus’ new wireless earphones now, the company already put out hints for the same with a tweet a few days back. It did not, however, specify anything related to the specifications or the features of its upcoming earphones. Moreover, at the point, we do not have an insight into the product, nor do we have renders or first look teasers for the same.
From what it seems, Agarwal suggests that the Bullets Wireless Z are more likely an affordable version of the popular Bullets Wireless 2 earphones. Taking this consideration, and the company’s current wireless earphone offerings, the Bullets Wireless 2, we can expect to see the upcoming earphones feature USB Type-C charging, which is something that OnePlus has been gravitating towards since the very beginning. Talking about the announcement date, Agarwal says that the Bullets Wireless Z is scheduled to launch very soon. However, as of now, we do not have an exact date for the announcement.
Besides, as already mentioned, the tipster also suggests that OnePlus is planning to introduce the Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger alongside the OnePlus 8 series at the launch. And, as we recently learned, the OnePlus 8 Pro, might come with support for 30W fast charging.
The OnePlus 8 is expected to come with a 6.55-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, while its elder sibling, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a slightly bigger 6.78-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Talking about performance, both devices are expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC (with 5G connectivity), with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. Besides, the regular model could come with a 4300mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge 30T support, while the Pro might have a bigger 4510mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge 30T fast charging, 30W wireless charging support, and 3W reverse wireless charging. For optics, the OnePlus 8 is expected to sport a triple camera setup with 48MP + 16MP + 2MP configuration, whereas, the Pro model is suggested to come with quad cameras in the 48MP + 48MP + 8MP + 5MP setup.
