A reputable insider showed OnePlus 8 six months before the announcement
Next week, the OnePlus 7T Pro is expected to be presented, but fans of the brand can already start waiting for OnePlus 8. The famous OnLeaks insider, whose leaks are always confirmed, published the first renderings of the future flagship OnePlus.
At first glance, it might seem that the OnePlus 8 is no different from the 7 Pro. There really aren’t many changes. The main one is the lack of a retractable front camera – it will be built into a small hole in the display. In addition, the multimedia speaker is represented by one thin slot on the bottom – this is where the external differences end.
At the back of the OnePlus 8 will be located the same triple camera as in the 7 Pro. Unless the lower module is no longer visually separated from the upper two, but how this will be implemented in reality is unclear.
According to an insider, the dimensions of the OnePlus 8 will be 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1 mm (9.3 mm, including the protrusion of the camera). For comparison, the OnePlus 7 Pro has the following dimensions: 162.6 x 75.9 x 8.8 mm. Thus, the new model will be a little more compact. The leak says the G8 will get a 6.5-inch display versus the 6.67-inch display of the 7 Pro.
There are no details about the technical characteristics of the smartphone. It is easy to assume that he will receive a top-end processor from Qualcomm (presumably, Snapdragon 865) and a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz or higher. The latter was announced at the presentation of the OnePlus 7T.
The presentation of OnePlus 8 is tentatively expected in May-June 2020. It is still unknown whether to wait for the Pro version.
