OnePlus fans have a reason to cheer as the Chinese smartphone maker may offer wireless charging on its upcoming OnePlus 8 series smartphones. OnePlus recently became a part of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), which works with the purpose of developing worldwide compatibility for all wireless chargers and wireless power sources. It is widely assumed that the Chinese smartphone maker would not have joined the consortium without actually planning to add wireless charging to its smartphones. However, the company has not made any announcements as to whether the OnePlus 8 series will have the wireless charging feature.

The WPC website has added OnePlus’s name to its members’ list. With the inclusion of its name, OnePlus has joined the likes of Samsung, LG, Apple, Oppo, HMD Global, Huawei, and Asus. It is believed that OnePlus has managed to keep the cost of its phones low by staying away from including wireless charging support in its smartphones. The Chinese smartphone maker has, however, often spoken of the prowess of its wired fast charging technology to avoid including wireless charging.

The official launch date of OnePlus 8 series is not known, but several leaks have given a hint as to what it could offer. According to reports, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be equipped with a Li-Po battery. It will feature the company’s Fluid AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels. It is also expected to come with the new Snapdragon 865 chipset.

A leaked photo of OnePlus’ upcoming offering the OnePlus 8 Pro claims that the device will offer a 120Hz refresh rate display. In a tweet shared by TrueTech Official, it can be seen that the phone offers three refresh rates options- 120Hz, 90Hz and 60Hz.

The device is likely to come with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display and as per tipsters, the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform along with 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB or 256GB of storage. The memory chip that the device will house is expected to be the latest LPDDR5 version. Furthermore, it is said that the OnePlus 8 Pro will include Universal Flash Storage 3.0 which will let apps and games open quickly.

On the rear, the phone will have a 64-megapixel primary camera with a 20-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 10x hybrid zoom along with a Time of Flight depth sensor. The sensor basically measures the time taken by an infrared beam to bounce off from a subject and return to the device, with this data more accurate depth measurements can be computed to deliver improved AR capabilities, more natural bokeh blurs for portraits among others, claimed the reports.

At the front, the device is expected to house a 12-megapixel punch-hole selfie camera. Furthermore, it is being said that the device will be powered by a 4500mAh battery that can charge at 50W.
