OnePlus shifted from a yearly upgrade cycle to a bi-annual one a couple of years ago. Now OnePlus smartphones are refreshed twice each year, between 4-6 months from the last device. Now the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro were launched in May last year. However, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro is reportedly expected to launch by late March or April.


To recollect, the 7T series comprising the OnePlus 7T and 7T pro was launched in September. That should point to a launch around April, six months later. Further, according to a Twitter leakster, the phones will be launched by April. Ishan Agarwal has suggested that the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro and maybe even the 8 Lite could launch together during this time.
