OnePlus is always a hot topic in the industry now, because they launch their new flagships in the timeframe of every 6 months. And slowly it’s becoming a style statement for many, just like Apple. It’s been a month since the launch of OnePlus 7T series, and in a month we already got few rumours and leaks of the upcoming OnePlus 8 series. Till now we got some leaked renders and rumours. Even though it’s too early for a live image, but today we got one.
An unknown OnePlus smartphone is spotted on an airport in China. This smartphone has different aesthetics as compared to current or old OnePlus smartphones. As you can see from the images below, from the front it looks like a no notch smartphone resembling to OnePlus 7 Pro/7T Pro. But if you notice very carefully there’s a dual punch hole camera setup similar to Galaxy S10+. As the picture quality is not so good, we can assume that this might be just a lighting glitch. But the source confirms that it’s punch hole camera. So it’s most probably the OnePlus 8 (or the Pro) with dual punch hole camera setup.
Now let’s look at the back which confirms it’s not a current OnePlus device. The very first thing to notice is the camera setup. This is still a triple camera setup but the placement is different than OnePlus 7T Pro. LED flash is situated between two cameras which is not the case with any OnePlus smartphone till date. And as there’s no cut-out above the case for a punch hole camera, it’s a punch hole camera setup for sure. Then it has a purplish gradient colour which is not being launched for any OnePlus 7/7T series smartphone yet. This might be a new colour option for the upcoming OnePlus 8 series? Lastly, this is a 5G model because it’s embedded at the back as “OnePlus 5G”.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. No doubt it’s the upcoming OnePlus 8 series smartphone, but the question is which model it is? The source is not confirmed on this. And as the previous leaks suggests that both regular and Pro variant will have punch hole camera setup, this might be OnePlus 8 Pro because of dual front camera. But personally I hope that this should be OnePlus 8 because the Pro should have full screen display. Well, what are your thoughts and opinions on this leak? Let us know in the comment section below.
