A fresh set of live renders on what is purported to be a ‘Lite’ version smartphone from the Chinese brand OnePlus has surfaced. There is no confirmation yet that these images are that of the new phone. However, some elements in the design show that there is a strong possibility the rumors are reliable. The photo may have been clicked from an assembly line since the mobiles are stacked in a bin. You get a glimpse of the front top of the phone and the rear. You can draw some conclusions about the design and specs from these renders.
A Triple Camera Setup in the Rear and a Notch in the Front
There have been earlier rumors as well with the accompanying pictures of the OnePlus 8 Lite suggesting that there would be two sensors in the rear, but the new renders clearly show it will be a triple camera setup in the rear. The flash that was earlier lodged inside the camera console now finds its place outside along the vertically aligned camera module.
What you see from the front view is a notch that has the front camera at one end. The remaining space in the notch maybe for the speaker grille.
The other inference you can draw from these renders is that there may be an in-display fingerprint as the rear panel appears to be plain without any fingerprint sensor.
Other Specifications and Details Rumored
At this juncture, it is all a speculation as far as the OnePlus 8 Lite is concerned. The prediction is that the phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or an 855+ chipset as the processor. The Chinese company that has established its brand as one offering high-end specifications at affordable prices may use the OnePlus 8 Lite to give the customers a cheaper alternative to the 5G phones. This is because of the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8T, including the Pro versions, are likely to be 5G smartphones. The OnePlus 8 Lite may not be a 5G phone. It is not certain what the price point is going to be for this device. If the OnePlus 8 Lite is pitted against the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, then the Chinese company will want to price it lower than them.
