Plenty of leaks and rumors about the upcoming OnePlus 8 series were already out and finally, the company has officially announced some key specifications of the lineup of devices. Details listed by officials on the OnePlus forum include an LPDDR5 RAM, Snapdragon 865 SoC, 120Hz Display and a lot more.
Earlier OnePlus announced the launch date of the OnePlus 8 series and the event will be in an online-only format due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Following the launch date announcement, the company has finally confirmed some key features of the device.
The latest OnePlus 8 series smartphone will be using the latest LPDDR5 RAM standard and UFS 3.0 storage. The same storage technology was used in the previous models like the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. As we all already know, the OnePlus 8 will feature the Qualcomm’s top-end processor, Snapdragon 865. 5G is the new trend and OnePlus 8 Pro will definitely have a 5G variant for sure.
For the display part this time the company went with a 120Hz display instead of the 90HZ, which is the current display trend. Nothing about the camera department has been shared by the company.
The overall changes under the hood will result in a dramatic increase in system performance while reducing power consumption.
Based on UFS 3.0, OnePlus has also added two new features called Turbo Write and Host Performance Booster. If you are new to these terms, here is what it means;
- Turbo Write uses the upper section of the ROM’s storage as a high-speed read/write interval. Here, in theory, each read/write will enter this high-speed buffer, and then proceed to the next command of data transfer.
- In addition, HPB (Host Performance Booster) can further improve the random read performance after extended use.
Furthermore, software optimization will also be done more efficiently which will result in a notable speed bump.
All the hardware and technologies used by OnePlus in their upcoming smartphone will definitely lead to a notable performance bump for sure, at least one paper. The phone will be unveiled during an online-only event on 14 April.
