Liu Zuohu, founder and CEO of OnePlus, said that the overseas version of OnePlus 7 Pro was the world’s first commercial 5G mobile phone last year. There is no doubt that all next-generation new products will be equipped with 5G as standard. It is worth noting that the tail of Liu Zuohu’s Weibo is “Android”. It seems that Liu Zuohu is using a new one plus machine, which may be OnePlus 8, or OnePlus 8 Pro.
Some netizens left a message that the cost of 5G will be much higher than that of 4G, right? Liu Zuohu gave a positive answer: Yes.
Some netizens speculated that Liu Zuohu suggested that the price of OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro would rise.
Judging from the Snapdragon 865 models released this year, price increases are an industry trend. Take the Galaxy S20 series as an example. The Galaxy S20 starts at 6,999 yuan, the Galaxy S20+ starts at 7,999 yuan, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra starts at 9,999 yuan.
Compared with the previous generation Galaxy S10 series, the prices of the Galaxy S20 series have increased (PS: Galaxy S10 National Bank starts at 5999 yuan, Galaxy S20+ National Bank starts at 6999 yuan).
Going back to the OnePlus 8 series, there is almost no suspense about the price increase of the two new flagships. The main factor is rising costs.
Industry insiders pointed out that not only the cost increase brought about by 5G, but also the increase in hardware such as screens, camera modules, memory, and storage also means cost increases.
According to the information that has been disclosed, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro use a hole-digging screen solution with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz and a resolution of up to 2K+. It is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship platform, equipped with LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.0 flash memory. Support fast charge.
It is not yet certain when the aircraft will be released, and it may be unveiled in April at the earliest.
