Amazon.in has put up a promo teaser page for the upcoming OnePlus 8 5G Smartphone. It reads “Lead with Speed”. According to the promo page, OnePlus 8 Series will launch in India on April 14th.
Since India is under lockdown, there is every chance the launch event would be streamed online instead of a physical event somewhere with all the media. It will be available to pre-order from Amazon.in soon after launch, but there is a very high chance for shipping delays.
Even though official specs are not available, since this is a flagship device, we can be sure the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G chipset. OnePlus is also rumored to launch a mid-range smartphone this time around named OnePlus Z.

Mi 10 Specs and Features
Mi 10 is a flagship smartphone from Xiaomi and will compete against the upcoming OnePlus 8 Series of smartphones. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G chipset.
The display is a 6.67 inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. The maximum refresh rate supported is 90hz, which should give a fluid UI experience.
One of the main highlights of the Mi 10 is it’s 108MP main camera sensor at the back. This is a Samsung made sensor and is similar to the one we see on the expensive Galaxy S20 Ultra model. It supports PDAF as well as has OIS build in. The aperture of the lens is F1.7.
Currently, on DxOMark Mobile Phone Camera Ratings, Mi 10 shares the top spot along with Oppo Find X2.
Since this has such a high megapixel main camera, and thanks to top-end Snapdragon 865 on board, it can shoot 8K videos. 4K at 60fps as well as Full HD slow-motion videos are supported as well.
Mi 10 also comes with a 13MP F2.4 aperture ultra-wide-angle lens. There are two more sensors at the back. A 2MP sensor is used to capture depth information to use in portrait mode and another 2MP sensor next to it lets you shoot macro shots.
It comes equipped with a 4780mAh battery which supports 30W Fast charging both via adapter as well as wirelessly.
