The sale of the latest OnePlus 7T hasn’t even begun and we are seeing renders of the OnePlus 8 surfacing online. CashKaro, a coupon website in association with OnLeaks, an accurate leaker released OnePlus 8 renders which features the iconic OnePlus design but with one significant change. The upcoming OnePlus 8 is expected to have a punch hole style of notch like the Samsung Galaxy S10.
OnePlus 8 Leaked Renders
The new OnePlus 8 renders feature a 6.5-inch display with extremely thin bezels and a punch hole notch instead of a pop-up camera which can be seen in the OnePlus 7 Pro. We don’t know if OnePlus has dropped this camera as these leaks are of the OnePlus 8 model and not the OnePlus 8 Pro. The punch hole notch may be an upgrade to the water drop one that we see in the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 8 Pro may retain the motorized pop up camera.
At the back of the device, we can expect to see a similar camera setup with three cameras in a vertical array. Surprisingly, the cameras will not be arranged in a circular manner like the OnePlus 7T.
Sources suggest that the OnePlus 8 will finally feature wireless charging, which was missing in the OnePlus 7 Pro. The design of the bottom-firing speakers has also been modified with a smoother edge unlike current models like the OnePlus 7T.
The dimensions of the OnePlus 8 are expected to be around 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1 mm while the thickness will be 9.3mm if we include the camera bump. According to the renders, the OnePlus 8 will have a curved display like the OnePlus 7 Pro. This will make it the only non-pro variant from OnePlus to have a curved display.
Source of the Leaked Renders
As mentioned earlier, the leaked renders come from OnLeaks, a reputed Twitter handle for device leaks, in association with CashKaro. They have leaked similar renders for the Sony Xperia 2 and the Motorola One Pro devices earlier.
The OnePlus 8 renders were generated from leaked CAD files and schematics from sources in the OnePlus team. Such leaks have been accurate in the past but we rarely see design renders this early in the development of a device. There is a lot of time till the release of OnePlus 8, so we will hopefully see more detailed leaks in the coming future.
