We’ve seen plenty of leaked renders supposedly showing the OnePlus 8 series ahead of its April 14 reveal date. That isn’t stopping the company from teasing the design in the lead-up to the unveiling.
OnePlus has now posted a YouTube video (above), giving us a tantalizing glimpse at the OnePlus 8 design and the Glacial Green colorway. The clip also confirms the alert slider and power button combo of previous devices, as well as a curved display. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the 3.5mm port is returning any time soon.
CEO Pete Lau also took to the official forum to reveal that they’re using fifth-generation matte frosted glass on the back of the OnePlus 8 series, complete with a gradient effect. In fact, Lau says the company experimented with over 300 color and texture combinations to suit the glass back.
The OnePlus CEO then confirmed the Glacial Green name for the color option seen in the video, saying the color was meant to invoke “fresh, environmentally friendly, natural, and youthful feelings.”
Otherwise, Lau noted that the OnePlus 8 series is thinner and lighter — hopefully this doesn’t come at the expense of battery size.
This is just the latest disclosure from the company in the run-up to the OnePlus 8 series launch. OnePlus has previously confirmed a Snapdragon 865 processor, 5G, a 120Hz screen for at least one model, UFS 3.0 storage, and LPDDR5 RAM.
