The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are expected to launch in mid-April, which is right next month. These two variants are about to launch next month and the lower variant of OnePlus 8, the OnePlus 8 Lite launch will be delayed a little bit due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Max J. has shared a concept image on Twitter which shows the launch date as the 15th of April. As we are facing one of the worst epidemics the world has ever seen, the launch event of the OnePlus 8 series will be held online. Earlier, Apple announced that its annual developer conference, WWDC 2020 moves online due to the same reason. Many giant tech events like Google IO 2020, Microsoft Build 2020, Mobile World Congress, etc were already canceled.
Recently, OnePlus 8 Pro has been leaked from the OP brand ambassador Robert Downey Jr. on one of their Instagram posts. A picture in which Robert Downey Jr. holding the OnePlus 8 Pro was leaked from an advertisement shooting set. The photo was posted to Instagram and understanding the mistake, it was soon deleted from Instagram. But some fans already took a screenshot of the same and it looks so much appealing.
From the image, we can see that the triple Camera arrangement looks quite similar to that of OnePlus 7 Pro but the sensor position has changed from below the camera to the left side of the camera array.
Following the leak, Ishan Agarwal also posted that OnePlus will announce the launch date of the new OnePlus 8 series on the 23rd of March in India.
Just 10 days left. Yes, #OnePlus will officially announce the launch date and event details of the #OnePlus8Series on 23rd March, at least in India. While the global launch may be 15 April, I reported a few days back that India launch is probably on 14 April! 😀
