OnePlus 8 Release Date, Speculations: 3 Things that the Next Entry Should Focus Upon

Discussions surrounding the OnePlus 8 has already begun despite the seventh iteration only reaching one month old. This isn’t surprising as there are still a few rooms for improvement that the flagship killer might work upon.

Arguably the biggest among these is its HDR. While the OnePlus 7 has an HDR+10 certification, watching videos on the device can still feel a bit lacking given the darkness of the display. Indeed, even in sequences where lighting is abundant, this muted display persists. The OnePlus 8 can fully address this complaint and provide a more satisfying experience for those who love to watch movies on their phone, ExpertReviews reported.

Another complaint that the OnePlus 7 is receiving is that the handset is just too big and bulky to be fitted in one’s pocket. With a dimension of 6.4 x 2.99 x 0.35 inches and 162.6 x 76 x 8.8 mm, this device is the biggest entry for the entire series yet. In fact, it’s even bigger than the Apple XS Max, the Samsung Galaxy S10, and Samsung Galaxy S10E. The OnePlus 8 would do well to reduce its size and thickness, especially since the current model nearly weighs half a pound, PhoneArena reported.

Lastly, an improvement in battery life would also propel the OnePlus 8 to new heights. Although the OnePlus 7 is already performing well in this regard, it doesn’t mean that the company should stop here. A phone with more than 4,000mAh battery would be a welcome improvement for a lot of people as it will push its longevity to more than 18 hours and cater to those who are constantly on the road.

As for when the OnePlus 8 will hit the market, there’s still no word from the company just yet since – as mentioned earlier – it’s too early for such information to go public. However, given the pattern of the manufacturer in recent years, the next iteration will likely come out sometime between May or June 2020.
