OnePlus smartphones are not only giving a tough fight to the established ones from Samsung and Apple apart from the Chinese brands but are matching them with respect to online rumors too. The company’s latest flagships OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro have been in the market for only a few days and already there are discussions going on about the next set of smartphones, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
Some Rumors on the Specs & Features
Earlier rumors had suggested that the OnePlus 8 Pro will sport a 6.65-inch punch-hole display doing away with the popup camera. The display screen appears to be covering edge-to-edge with practically no bezels. The display itself is being predicted to be a fluid AMOLED one and the screen refresh rate will be 90Hz. The processor is said to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865SoC.
In the optics section, the speculation is that the OnePlus 8 Pro model will sport a quad-camera setup in the rear, out of which the fourth will be a 3D time of flight unit that will be placed separately from the triple lenses. The LED flash will also be located alongside.

Rumors indicate that the regular OnePlus 8 may have a triple camera arrangement. The renders and rumors say that the phone will have the volume rocker on the left and an alert slider on the right. Though the space left in the bottom edge may be minimal after accounting for the overflowing display, it will have to accommodate a speaker grill and a Type-C port. Both these phones are likely to be 5G enabled. The removal of the popup camera will also mean the new phones will be able to go for the dust and water resistance certification IP68.
The speculations include a crisp Twitter message that states the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be launched in the second quarter of 2020. This is no different from the schedule the brand has been following now for some time.
