OnePlus 8 series is set to launch today after a flurry of teasers by CEO Pete Lau. The next-generation OnePlus phones will bring in some of the much-demanded features, including wireless charging that has so far been missing on OnePlus smartphones. As many as two smartphones have been confirmed to launch, the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, the latter of which will, of course, have more bells and whistles. The OnePlus 8 Pro has been teased to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, 30W Warp Wireless Charge support, and likely an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. The design of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro phones has also been tweaked to include the punch-hole on the display. OnePlus has also revamped its logo that will be featured on the OnePlus 8 phones.

The live stream is already available on YouTube and the company website (embedded below).
OnePlus 8 Series Price
While the official pricing of the OnePlus 8 duo will be revealed tonight at the event, rumours did not leave it to the imagination.
