Although the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to be unveiled later today YouTuber MKBHD already placed a teaser about it. Even showing the device but in particular the screen which is extremely responsive due to its high refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Marques Brownlee, better known as MKBHD, is considered an influential tech reviewer. In a teaser video on Twitter he admits using the OnePlus 8 Pro for the last 2 weeks. He got it from OnePlus itself for review that is probably going live later tonight after OnePlus announced their new flagship.
Although we see the device, not all of it is visible. Marques is using a case to hide the looks. What we do see it the screen. It has sharply curved edges, something Marques is not a big fan of. The rounded edges is something we saw a lot on Samsung phones, but it is something Samsung itself has become more reticent about in recent years. OnePlus apparently likes it. The screen has a high 120 Hz refresh rate, just like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, but OnePlus does this in Quad HD+ resolution instead of switching back to Full HD+.
OnePlus 8 Pro announcement
At 17:00 CET, OnePlus will announce the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro during an online event you can watch here. OnePlus is no known to give occasional hints or even information about upcoming phones. For example, we already know that the new models have 5G support, an official waterproofing IP rating and wireless charging (finally!). What surprises it has left will become clear after tonight.
