Low latency high quality wireless headphones might be too expensive for many.
AnonD-836132, 01 Apr 2020I think in OnePlus 8 Lite aka OnePlus Z we might see the headphone jack.Don't do that. Don't give me hope.

I assume the OnePlus 8 will be ~750 and the Pro ~900 bucks.
piku, 01 Apr 2020I am not buying any Oneplus phone until they bring back headphone jack I think in OnePlus 8 Lite aka OnePlus Z we might see the headphone jack.

Not buying because of the price. Maybe in a year or two when the price makes sense.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2020Looks like Pro will be $1000 in USA. I am betting on $900 for OnePlus 8 Pro.
The performance gain of LPDDR5 is pretty minimal since SD865 is not optimized for LPDDR5. On the other hand, Performance gain of UFS3.1 over UFS3.0 is more noticeable.
Isn't ram speed is its frequency, how come it is in mbps?
I am not buying any Oneplus phone until they bring back headphone jack
About time for UFS 3.1 for that smooth and fast experience
Over the years BBK Electronics, the company behind the brands such as OnePlus and OPPO, to name just a couple, had a strategy of sorts to segregate flagship-esque, high-end, upper mid-tier, lower mid-tier, and cheap-as-chips phones, by association with a sub-brand. This strategy has been instrumental in BBK close to becoming the largest smartphone manufacturer group globally, accounting for over 20% of the global smartphone market, with three of its brands in the top 10, according to the Q3 2019 global smartphone market share data.†
However these sub-brands appear now to be overlapping each other - case in point, the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro and the already released OPPO Find X2 Pro. Both these phones have almost exactly the same specs. Sure there are some minor differences, such as in this GSMarena article which points to OnePlus 8 Pro having LPDDR5 RAM (the first phone to be equipped with it, I believe), while the OPPO Find X2 Pro has a telephoto lens, faster wired charging (65W vs 30W), but a slightly smaller battery size (4260 mAh vs 4510 mAh).
Both these two phones have near identical physical dimensions (±1 mm), and almost the same display resolution, same 120 Hz display refresh rate, Gorilla Glass 6, ingress protection (IP) rating, USB 3.0 OTG port, and UFS 3.0.
The OPPO Find X2 Pro was priced at a staggeringly bewildering €1200 at launch. That price tag does not bode well for OnePlus 8 Pro, considering both phones are practically identical.
Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, needs to recognise that in order to at least maintain their share of the smartphone market, they need to price accordingly, taking into account they are not arrogant Apples or sensual SameSong. One thing OnePlus has in its favour is brand recognition amongst the tech aficionados, both in Asia and around the World – unlike OPPO that is mostly unrecognisable in Europe and the US.
So Pete Lau if you're reading this comment (yeah right), I urge you to consider pricing your upcoming OnePlus 8 phones similar to that of its predecessor, the OnePlus 7T. Whilst we understand and appreciate the separation of the SD X55 5G chip from the main SoC (SD 865), as well as the hardware complexity of 5G, will lead to raising the phone's overall cost price, all things considered, the retail price of the OnePlus 8 series ought not to be in excess of €100 as compared to the OnePlus 7T series.
Pete, be sensible about the pricing to ensure both market share and revenues grow from the sales of the upcoming OnePlus 8 series. Whatever you do, don't imitate the high-risk pricing strategy of Tony Chen, CEO of OPPO.

Article quote, "OnePlus is committed to delivering a "fast and smooth" user experience. To achieve that, it needs the right combination of hardware and software, says CEO and co-founder Pete Lau..."
Commitment to deliver a wondrous user experience requires a third element besi
The one who comments on the headphone jack is the uneducated brain. You can use a lightening cable that can connect via usb to the headphone jack. Is very simple. The headphone jack on the mobile phone is outdated and not important.
I hope this mobile has a great stereo speakers like xiaomi mi 10 pro, blackshark 3 pro, realme x50 pro, oneplus 7t and razer phone 2.
If they're focused on adding features that truly matters to people then they'd bring back the 3.5mm headphone jack. Until then, OnePlus isn't getting a cent from me.
