There is no doubt that One Plus 7T and One Plus 7T Pro are fantastic phones, and their prices are worth it, which has become the norm. The next-gen phone models will be released within a few months. You don’t have to stress yourself about the features, all you need to do is to anticipate its release, due to the leaks.
From what the leaks have shown, it was revealed that the One Plus 8 will look like the One Plus 7 Pro. The renders also revealed that the normal model would definitively abandon the flat display design and then try out the curved edges that will enhance its visual appeal. Currently, the specifications for One Plus 8 have not been released yet, but it seems it will be a mix and match of One Plus 7T and the One Plus 7 Pro, although with a brand-new chipset.
Based on the revelations of the renders, it appears that the differences between the One Plus Pro 8 and One Plus 8 Pro will be marginal. The One Plus 8 Pro model will also abandon the pop-up camera system for a hole-punch cutout for the front camera. But the design will still look similar to the One Plus 7T Pro, excluding the extra TOF sensor housing for the rear triple camera setup. The display also has an identical curve, like the present Pro models.
This year 2019, the smartphone manufacturers are going insane with the back-to-back release and launching of new phones every month. Every new phone has a very short lifespan before it gets a generation upgrade. One Plus isn’t a stranger to this notion, and this year, the One Plus brand has gone ahead by launching the successor to the One Plus series, which was barely four months old.
The One Plus brand continuously makes an enormous step or put in the extra effort with every upgrade, which makes every new phone much better than the previous ones.
The renders of One Plus series are currently spreading around the internet, and this time, the regular and the Pro version have been leaked within a few weeks.
Expected One Plus 8 launch date is in the first half of 2020, most likely in May. Based on the pattern of their previous release, the One Plus 6 was revealed on 22 May, and the One Plus 7 and 7 Pro were revealed on 14 May.
Based on the price of both One Plus 7T AND One Plus 7T Pro, we would expect the One Plus 8 series to stay around the same price point, possibly with a little increase. So, the price will be around: Rs. 39,999 for One Plus 8 and Rs. 49,999 for One Plus 8 Pro.

One Plus 8: Another enormous upgrade from its predecessor?
The upgrade from the One Plus 6T to the One Plus 7 wasn’t that much, but the changes with One Plus 7T were visible. In comparison to the One Plus 7, the 7T looks totally like a brand-new phone, which is closer to the One Plus 7 Pro. It also seems to be the case with the new One Plus 8 that will be released in a few months.
The leaks of the One Plus 8 have revealed that the looks will be similar to One Plus 7T Pro. The renders have revealed that the standard model will abandon the flat design and will make use of the curved edges that will enhance its visual appeal. One Plus 8 specifications have not yet been released, but it looks like it will be a mix and match of the One Plus 7T and the One Plus 7 Pro, although with a new chipset.
The One Plus 8 can have a 6.65-inch display alongside a 90Hz refresh rate with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. And also, to reduce cost, the display can keep the Full HD+ resolution.
Nevertheless, something that is different about this new model is the chipset, which is anticipated to be the Snapdragon 865 chipset in line with the UFS 3.0 storage. Just like the One Plus 7T Pro, a similar triple camera setup is expected to be seen in it, with a 48-megapixel main camera along with a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel 3x telephoto camera. Also, expect faster recharges because the battery capacity will increase to 4000mAh, also having the Warp Charge 30T tech.
The price of One Plus 8 can begin from Rs 40,000 or more than, which will be more costly than the present One Plus 7T models.

So what’s left for the One Plus 8 Pro?
The differences between One Plus 8 and One Plus 8 Pro will be marginal based on the revelation of the renders. The Pro model in One Plus 8 series will also abandon the pop-up camera system for a hole-punch cutout for the front camera. Though, the design will still look similar to the One Plus 7T Pro, aside for the extra TOF sensor that houses the rear triple camera setup. The display also has a similar curve as the present Pro models.
One Plus will also make use of the similar snapdragon chipset on the Pro model but expect One Plus to pair faster storage with this new model with extra RAM. The One Plus 8 Pro can even increase up to 512GB storage.
We also think that One Plus can go for an even 120Hz refresh rate for the display, which is similar to the one of Asus ROG Phone 2. It can be paired with a Quad HD+ resolution with an excellent OLED panel from Samsung. A faster fingerprint sensor will also be part of it.
One Plus can also improve on the performance of the rear camera hardware and the ultra-wide camera.
One Plus could also come with a faster battery charging technology. We expect to see at least 45W fast charging available on the Pro model on a bigger 4500mAh battery.
The price of One Plus 8 Pro can begin from Rs 50,000 or more than, which will be more costly than the present One Plus models.
Fullscreen, punch-hole cameras
GPU: Vertical rear camera systems
The Early renders of the One Plus 8 series recommended that the One Plus will go for the punch-hole design for its next models, though.
We expect that the alert slider will intact with an inclusion of a premium build quality too. The One Plus 7T model has a circular camera housing on the rear, while the One Plus 7T Pro has a vertical housing. The Renders suggests that both One Plus 8 models will have a vertical camera housing design.
