OnePlus just unveiled its 120Hz refresh display technology yesterday and Concept One smartphone last week at CES 2020. And now, OnePlus 8, the company’s next flagship smartphone has been spotted on India’s BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification portal hinting towards a nearing launch of the series in the country.

The Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is expected to launch three smartphones in the first half of 2020, one of which will be the standard OnePlus 8. This variant of the device was earlier spotted in the database of China’s MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) with model number IN2010.

It was from @Onleaks and it revealed the design of the next generation OnePlus smartphones with punch hole displays in favour of dew-drop notches and pop-up cameras. Further, for the first time since OnePlus X, the company will be releasing a budget device named OnePlus 8 Lite. On top of that, as per the screen technology announced by the company yesterday, the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to sport a QHD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate.
