How To Watch Today’s One Plus 8 Launch Event

The event, which will happen in the form of a virtual keynote, officially gets underway today at 5pm AEST on OnePlus’ website.

The company has already teased the new devices a bit in the form of a YouTube video, which also named the start time for the event.

A video leaked Monday by YouTuber Marques Brownlee shows the OnePlus8 with that 120Hz. display. He also noted that the phone has an AMOLED display with in-screen fingerprint reader.
