Although the Samsung Galaxy S20 family might have kicked off the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 festivities for 2020 flagship Android smartphones, it certainly won't be the last new device announced. One of the next smartphones to come down the pipeline will be the OnePlus 8 Pro. In addition to the aforementioned Snapdragon 865 SoC, the OnePlus 8 Pro will also come with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem. It's said the SoC will be paired with either 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM depending on whether you opt for 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. On the display front, it's expected that the smartphone's OLED will measure 6.5 inches with an FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. pic.twitter.com/laO3szAcsM... Read more...
The OnePlus 7T has always struck us as being a very compelling smartphone with excellent performance, a gorgeous display, and value pricing. We reviewed the smartphone back in early October 2019 and came away duly impressed with what it has to offer. The OnePlus 7T's $599 price tag was already an incredible bargain compared to flagship smartphones from Samsung and Apple, but OnePlus is increasing its value proposition with its current sale. You can now get the OnePlus 7T for a low, low price of $499 direct from OnePlus. To sweeten the deal even further, OnePlus is throwing in a set of its Bullets Wireless 2 headphones for free. The Bullets Wireless 2 have an MSRP of $99, which makes this bundle... Read more...
There is little doubt that OnePlus has not heard the call for wireless charging support to finally be a feature of the company's smartphones—users have been clamoring for the feature for quite some time now. Don't bother finding a mountaintop to shout the request from, however, as it's probably going to find its way to the OnePlus 8 series. How do I know? Well, I don't know, not for sure, anyway. However, OnePlus has seemingly provided a gigantic hint by joining the Wireless Power Consortium. That is not something a company does unless it is interested in wireless charging, just as you don't purchase NFL Sunday Ticket if you have no intention of watching football games. Rumors have been... Read more...
OnePlus has been able to build a reputation and a following by offering high-end features in Android handsets that undercut the competition on price. The OnePlus 7T, for example, is every bit a premium Android phone, but is significantly cheaper than some of the $1,000 top-shelf handsets on the market. That said, where is the wireless charging feature? Well, it might be coming to the OnePlus 8 Pro. For whatever reason, wireless charging is an increasingly popular feature that has, up to this point, eluded OnePlus owners. Instead, OnePlus has been hanging its hat on Warp Charge technology. Users who shell out for the $30 Warp Charge adapter can take their OnePlus 7T from a comatose state to a... Read more...
Few people will miss the era of 60Hz smartphones when it finally comes to an end someday. Who knows when that day will actually arrive, but in the meantime, smartphone makers are slowing migrating to faster displays. To show the benefits of a faster refresh rate, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau uploaded a couple of video clips to Twitter highlighting the 120Hz display on the upcoming OnePlus 8. I've often said that 120Hz is 'gaming phone' territory, and that's true—the Razer Phone 1 and Razer Phone 2 both sport a 120Hz display, as does the ASUS ROG Phone II. At the same time, we are seeing non-gaming phones adopt the faster refresh rate as well. OnePlus confirmed it will arrive on its OnePlus 8 series,... Read more...
You have to hand it to OnePlus, the spunky smartphone maker is finding ways to innovate in a field that has begun to feel a bit stagnant in recent years. As such, it will be interesting to see what the OnePlus 8 series brings to the table when it releases. In the meantime, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed the OnePlus 8 will ship with a 120Hz screen. That is 'gaming phone' territory. For example, both the Razer Phone 1 and 2 sport a 120Hz display, and ASUS made the leap to 120Hz as well with its ROG Phone II (the first generation ROG Phone featured a 90Hz display, which is still fast for a smartphone). To be clear, though, OnePlus is not marketing its next flagship as a gaming phone. Lao shared... Read more...
For years, smartphone makers have concentrated on delivering premium-looking designs, even for mid-range and entry-level models. More recently, the focus has shifted towards cramming as many camera sensors as possible into these portable gadgets, and in some cases, they are eyesores. What's the solution? Based on what OnePlus is working on, a parlor trick could be the key. Over on Twitter, the smartphone maker teased a glimpse of a prototype phone it is calling the OnePlus Concept One. It uses "groundbreaking 'invisible camera' and color-shifting glass technology" to essentially hide the multiple camera sensors and LED flash that are plopped into a circular protrusion on the rear of the phone....

OnePlus has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons. This past month, the company experienced its second major security breach in two years, resulting in the leak of personal details like customer name, email address, physical address, and phone number. In an effort to get a handle on its security shortcomings, OnePlus has announced a new bug bounty program called the OnePlus Security Response Center. This particular bounty is being run by OnePlus, and is open to both academic institutions and security professionals. OnePlus is hoping that participants in the program will "proactively search for and report" on security issues and threats that affect its products and systems, including... Read more...
This may come as a shock to some, but OnePlus is designing another smartphone! Okay, so that's not exactly the surprise of the century (or year or month or...). But in addition to the usual hardware refreshes that OnePlus is known for, the company is also planning to showcase its first concept phone at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month. That's right, OnePlus has never before introduced a concept smartphone. That will change in January when it trots out the appropriately named OnePlus Concept One, the company announced today on its six-year anniversary. "For the past six years, OnePlus has been striving to share the absolute best in technology with the world, producing a total... Read more...
There might not be all that many surprises from OnePlus in 2020, at least in regards to its OnePlus 8 series of smartphones. We have already seen leaked renders of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro over the past few months. Now we can add a OnePlus 8 Lite model to the mix, with a fresh set of renders showing off the device. In case you missed any of the past leaks, the OnePlus 8 will supposedly launch with a curved-edge display sporting a punch-hole design, and three cameras on the rear on the device. The OnePlus 8 Pro, meanwhile, sports a similar design with the same curved-edge display and punch-hole design for the front camera, but with a quad-camera arrangement on the back. Both of those are... Read more...
We have sung the praises of the OnePlus 7 Pro here at HotHardware before, and OnePlus is luckily running a Black Friday promotion that is knocking a big chunk off the flagship smartphone's price tag. OnePlus is already known for attractive pricing for its Android smartphones, so this particular configuration’s $699 price tag was already among the lowest for devices in its class. However, today's Black Friday sale sees the OnePlus 7 Pro discounted by $150, which brings its price down to an incredibly hot $549. Unfortunately, that price will only get you the Mirror Gray model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Almond and Nebula Blue colors are currently out of stock,... Read more...
Nearly two years ago, OnePlus announced that it had experienced a security breach that resulted in the credit card details of roughly 40,000 customers being stolen. "We are also working with our current payment providers to implement a more secure credit card payment method, as well as conducting an in-depth security audit," wrote the company at the time. "All these measures will help us prevent such incidents from happening in the future." Now, OnePlus is reporting that it has experienced yet another security incident, and this time the company says that personal information from some of its users was accessed by an "unauthorized party". OnePlus is not naming this third-party company/vendor,... Read more...
It's only been a couple of months since we posted a review of the OnePlus 7T, but in the time that has elapsed, there have been numerous leaks and rumors centered on the unannounced OnePlus 8 Pro. If you were hoping for a reprieve from another leak today, well, our apologies. Instead of a reprieve, you get some diagrams to look at. The diagrams are mostly in line with previously leaked renders, so there's not a lot that is new. However, they do outline (quite literally) some changes OnePlus is making to its next flagship phone, assuming these are legit. Perhaps the most interesting (to some people) is the pill-shaped cutout in the front of the handset. The OnePlus 7T debuted with a teardrop notch... Read more...
Following up on the launch of the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro, we can now turn our attention to what comes next from OnePlus. That would be the OnePlus 8 family. More renders have come to light, and they show the OnePlus 8 Pro sporting a full-front display with a punch-hole design for the front camera. Looking back, the recently launched OnePlus 7T featured a teardrop notch for the front camera, similar in style to the Essential Phone. Prior to that, the OnePlus 7 Pro from earlier this year used a motorized pop-up camera to keep the front display nice and clean. A punch-hole cutout for the front camera is one that has worked for Samsung, and if the leaked press renders are accurate, that is... Read more...
