Recently, it was reported that the Pro version of the OnePlus 8 phone might get support for wireless fast charging. This is good news for those who have been waiting for this feature to arrive on a OnePlus device. A cryptic tweet with an image from leakster Max J showed a smartphone placed on a wireless charging mat. There was also a caption – “charge like a pro.”

We can also see a punch-hole cutout. There is no word on the other two modes – OnePlus 8 and 8 Lite. Recently, the company had revealed that it is indeed working on 120Hz refresh rate screens. However, it wasn’t concrete if we’d be seeing these panels right from the OnePlus 8 or its subsequent iterations. The leaks, however, suggests the 120Hz screen will be used on at least one variant of the OnePlus 8 series.

The OnePlus 8 Pro was also recently spotted on Geekbench. The phone’s listing revealed a 12GB RAM variant codenamed ‘IN2023’. The phone features a ‘kona’ motherboard, which points to the Snapdragon 865 chip and runs on Android 10. It scored 4,296 on single-core, and 10,603 on multi-core tests.
