Spoiler

News regarding Oneplus have been floating around this month, some confirmed but others remain a rumor:

For starters, Always On Display is coming back in a future patch:

The basic model Oneplus 8 Lite may be renamed into the Oneplus Z despite how poor non-number Oneplus phones sold in the past according to a XDA developers staff:

 

For the flagship, the specs are also found:

Onleaks have some renders of the phone:

Perhaps Robert Downey Jr may have it as well, showing here that he is doing the promotions for the product:

Here's a possible picture of the pro version from somewhere in the mainland (possibly ShenZhen?)

Thoughts: While the specs do look competitive against other brands, I think I will wait for longer, since the Oneplus 6 is still doing pretty well for me honestly.

TFW they make AOD sound like a revolutionary new feature when its present on 99% of custom ROMs


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

which is funny cause it was present when they launched the one plus 6 only to remove it with a day one software update as soon as the phone got out of the box

I still can't believe they will go with punch hole and not keep motorized front cam. Such disappointment

Yeah I know, there are alternatives, but you know, kinda saddens me when top popular brands with also high end specs scuff design like so. =/

Oneplus scuffed their designs long ago when they decided to take away the headphone jack and expandable storage. They have also lost out in what made the brand popular in the first place.

 

It was inevitable. Founder and director of the company Carl Pei said long ago that he was inspired by Apple's success and wants to emulate it. This means it will inevitably become the polar opposite of that the company stood for in the first place.

Yeah, I understand that... I know they want to chase their success. Personally, I don't mind lack of 3.5mm jack and expandable storage per say, I'd just attack that short dongle on my earbuds cable and leave it, and go with higher internal fast capacity. I get some miss options.

But indeed kinda seems most brands will come to overall peak about everything and some things will differentiate them only. Maybe top brands should actually provide more years of OS upgrades.

Disappointed by the price. Here in Sweden the cheapest OP8 Pro starts at our "1,000 dollars" mark. You can get the Galaxy S20 (non 5G) for less than the cheapest OP8 Pro here.

 

Disappointed that they still have that macro camera which has never been good or useful. Want a macro camera? Do what Samsung does and have a telephoto camera with a short enough focus distance to be able to do macro shots. Or just skip the macro capabilities and give us a telephoto camera. It's far more useful.

 

I wonder if OnePlus actually uses a true 10 bit display in their phone or if it's an 8 bit panel with dithering.

I don't get why people love motorized cameras so much.

They are:

1) Prone to failure.

2) Slower.

3) Adds weight and takes up size in the phone.

4) Less water proof

 

And for what? A tiny, tiny bit of extra space in the notification area?

OnePlus 8 is a great phone. Too bad it runs Google's garbage and now has "premium" price tag as well, kinda defeating what OnePlus used to be. Cheap but high end for that money.

Yep. For $50 and 10 hours of music for 10 minutes of charge, they could be a smash if they sound good.

It's not that I love it, but it doesn't eat into display. Would rater have those quirks than a freaking hole in a nice display, on a phone that is €1000+ it's unacceptable to me. I don't use front cam but I look at the display all the time and it feels like a huge dead pixel of sort.

Well, that's the problem with duopoly. It's either shitty privacy nightmare Android or slightly better iOS. Or XDA brewed one off Google-less versions of Android that hopefulyl work with your phone (unlikely). Yeah, it' sucks how mobile world evolved. Android as it is is fine, but without Google junk it's essentially useless because apps depend so heavily on their proprietary frameworks.

From what I can gather, the BW2 has better drivers, support for higher-quality audio-codec ie. aptX HD, Qualcomm cVc Noice cancellation Technology (no idea how good that is), 14h play-time. The BWZ has worse drivers, supports only lower-quality audio-codec ie. aptX non-HD, no cVc, but has 6h more play-time, costs about half of the BW2's price and has IP55-rating. No idea about BWZ's call-quality.

 

I'm not an audio-nerd and I don't listen to music, so I don't have much of a personal opinion here. For me, the most important thing would be the call-quality and according to reviews, the BW2 has really good call-quality. BWZ is an unknown at the moment.

Funny enough oneplus 7 can now run on Windows 10 ARM edition.

 

I might write about that.
