We are days away from the official OnePlus series 8 launch this April 14, 8:30PM IST(11:00PM Philippine Time). And yet we are seeing a lot of leaks and teasers in typical phone release fashion. The latest to come out of the bat is the majestic Interstellar Glow Color. The rainbow hue style color on phones is the trend alongside prism black and crystal white colors. OnePlus’ approach to the rainbow style hue might be the most refreshing yet.
The left image is an old render of the Interstellar Glow while the right one is the latest. This isn’t the first rumor of a OnePlus phone having a rainbow hue-like color scheme. The previous OnePlus 7T had unreleased Gold and Marble variants, according to the company’s designers. While it is unclear why the company didn’t release it, it seems like the Interstellar Glow colorway will push through.
What makes this version closer to being reality is the additional renders on the side. Moreover, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, teased 30-watt wireless charging support on the new OnePlus 8 series. “Today, we can say with confidence that the Warp Charge 30 Wireless is a product we’re proud of. With a peak output of up to 30W, this powerful new wireless charger ensures your device goes from 1% to 50% in only half an hour.” While OnePlus is known for having a proprietary charging solution, the company guaranteed Qi wireless charging albeit only in 5W and 10W EPP standard.
If we're going to do something, we're going to do it right.https://t.co/9l49r9P5CK
