OnePlus 8 renders leak with hole-punch display

Just one week after the OnePlus 7T was announced, we’re getting what may be our first look at the OnePlus 8.

New renders have surfaced that claim to show off the OnePlus 8. These aren’t official renders made by OnePlus, but are made from “detailed schematics” shared by a company insider, says CashKaro and OnLeaks.

There are a few notable changes with this OnePlus 8. First is the hole-punch display in the upper-left corner, which suggests that OnePlus will ditch the waterdrop notch found on the OnePlus 6T and 7T in favor of something a bit smaller. Around back, the triple rear cameras look more like the layout on the OnePlus 7 Pro than on the OnePlus 7T.

Today’s report also claims that the OnePlus 8 will have a 6.5-inch display with curved edges and wireless charging support. That would be a first for a OnePlus device, as the company has said before that it doesn’t include wireless charging because its wired Warp Charge feature is faster. Some folks like to have the convenience of wireless charging, though, and so it’d be great to see OnePlus finally include that option with one of its phones.

Finally, today’s leak shows that the OnePlus 8 might include an alert slider and a USB-C port, and that its dimensions could be 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1mm. To compare, the OnePlus 7T measures 160.94 × 74.44 × 8.13mm.

We’re probably still several months away from the OnePlus 8 being announced, as the OnePlus 7 Pro was introduced in mid-May this year. T-Mobile has teamed up with OnePlus on three smartphone launches in a row, though, and so it’s definitely possible that we’ll see this OnePlus 8 arrive on T-Mo when it is officially introduced.

    I just need an actual IP rating and I’m sold. I love my 7pro but I would like to have the peace of mind of using my phone.

      You didn’t have peace of mind using your phone before most phones had IP ratings? I mean, that wasn’t that long ago.

      • Peter Smith

        True, but like all things. You never knew you needed it until you have it and now you have it, you have no idea how you lived without it (cell phone, tv, social media, internet,etc) Need more examples?

        • g2a5b0e

          That’s a fair response. I guess an IP rating just doesn’t fall into that category for me.

      Aren’t those paid certifications? if so, would you accept if OnePlus provided a similar in-house rating. Like off-brand items do: “compare to ip68.”

    I like it, this would replace my Galaxy s9. I love my 1+6t, so I’m looking forward to having another OnePlus!

  • symsoul

    I’d rather have a 5G announcement by OnePlus than one about wireless charging. Feels like incremental changes but we’ll have to wait till it gets closer. Still very happy with OnePlus overall.

    I’m not a fan of the hole punch. Why in the hell do companies keep adding a notch or hole punch in there display?
