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.
