The OnePlus 8 can be expected to be launched in the first half of 2020, but this does not mean that leaks may not emerge. The launch of the OnePlus 7T has only taken a week, following the mid-size refresh of the company’s OnePlus 7. The alleged OnePlus 8 render has surfaced – covering the entire design of the smartphone. This alleged OnePlus 8 design indicates that opting for a hole-hole display will give a different look to the smartphone. This means that the selfie camera will be sitting on one corner of the display, furthering the Waterdrop Notch or pop-up selfie camera seen in previous OnePlus iterations. With this, the report also claims some specifics, such as the dimensions and presence of wireless charging.
Called “First and Very Early Look” in OnePlus 8, the leak-based CAD renders have been posted by CashKaro in collaboration with OnLeaks. In renderers, it can be seen that the display has very thin bezels on the edges and curved edges. Speakers only refer to OnePlus 8 and do not have “Pro” in its nomenclature. It is therefore possible that OnePlus is looking at a hole-punch design to move to the all-display front on its regular model as the Pro model already has a pop-up camera.
At the rear, the render of this alleged OnePlus 8 shows a vertical triple camera setup that is odd. OnePlus recently switched to a circular camera module for its OnePlus 7T and based on the company’s track record, the design will usually be carried forward to another generation.
CashKaro said that its source also supported wireless charging to the OnePlus 8, a welcome addition to the device. Some of the other details included include an approximate display size of about 6.5-inches. The phone is also said to measure 160.2×72.9×8.1mm (9.3 mm including rear camera bump).
It is reportedly the OnePlus 8 sports in-display fingerprint scanner. The rest of the designs are with the OnePlus design language. There is no information about the device’s internal hardware, however, we can expect this smartphone to sport a 90Hz display. OnePlus recently announced that all its future phones will sport fluid display technology. Stay tuned for the Gadgets 360 as we watch out for more leaks of this upcoming device.
