You may remember several real-life OnePlus 8 Pro images that surfaced a couple of days ago. Well, this leak comes from the very same source, and it is being relayed by Ishan Agarwal.

The OnePlus 8 Pro will include 'Mach Charge' wireless charging, leak suggests

If you take a look at the image provided below this article, you'll be able to see a screenshot from the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here, you'll notice a charging animation, and 'Mach Charge' branding on the inside.

If this information is accurate, the OnePlus 8 Pro will ship with 'Mach Charge' as its wireless charging solution, and Dash Charge as its wired charging solution.

This may be accurate, as Max J. already suggested that the OnePlus 8 Pro will ship with wireless charging. OnePlus also joined the WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) quite recently. The company is allegedly planning to both include wireless charging for the OnePlus 8 Pro, and also release its fully wireless earbuds.

Those fully wireless earbuds will ship with a charging case which will support wireless charging. Those earbuds are expected to launch alongside the OnePlus 8 Pro. We digress, though.

We're still not sure how fast will this charging be, but if we had to guess, we'd say 30W. OPPO is planning to include 30W wireless charging in the Find X2 and / or Find X2 Pro, allegedly. Those are two sistem companies, and it's possible OnePlus will take that tech, and rebrand it for the OnePlus 8 Pro.

We're not sure if the OnePlus 8 will include wireless charging at all, but it may. Both devices are also expected to include water and dust resistance this time around.

OnePlus' flagship smartphones are expected to launch in March or April

The OPPO Find X2 and X2 Pro will become official on March 6, while the OnePlus 8 series will follow later that month, or in early April. OnePlus still did not confirm the launch date for its flagships.

They were initially supposed to arrive in May, but a tipster suggested it will happen sooner. He said that the two phones will launch at the end of March, or beginning of April.

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will both be made out of metal and glass, and include a display camera hole in the top-left corner of the display. Both phones will support curved displays with 120Hz refresh rate.

The Snapdragon 865 will fuel these two phones, while OnePlus will include LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage on the inside. Android 10 will come pre-installed, while both will include multiple cameras on the back.
