OnePlus 8 Pro appears in first live images, punch hole display confirmed

OnePlus is expected to announce the OnePlus 8 series in April. While rumours claim that April 15th is the launch date for the next OnePlus phones, the company is yet to release an official confirmation. Recent reports have revealed that the OnePlus 8 lineup has three phones, including the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 Lite. While we’ve already seen plenty of leaks surrounding these handsets, the latest one comes in the form of a live shot of the OnePlus 8 Pro, alongside some key information about the lineup.

A live shot of the OnePlus 8 Pro has surfaced

The new image shows the OnePlus 8 Pro sporting a curved screen with a slightly thick chin. There is a punch-hole at the upper-left corner of the display. The handset features a quad HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, reiterates the new leak. The screen will be integrated with a fingerprint scanner.

The glass back of the OnePlus 8 Pro features a vertical camera setup that houses three lenses. The fourth camera is placed alongside the vertical module. An LED flash can be seen below the camera housing. It houses a Sony IMX686 64-megapixel primary shooter.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. The new leak reveals that the phone has a 4,500mAh battery that supports 50W fast charging. The SoC will be supported by up to 12GB of RAM on the OnePlus 8 Pro.

Coming to the OnePlus 8, it will also feature a QHD+ AMOLED screen with a punch-hole cutout and 120Hz refresh rate. The Snapdragon 865 will power the device and it will sport a triple camera setup on its rear. Both phones are now rumoured to arrive in grey and blue colours with a matte finish. An additional colour variant that could be olive green or matte gold will reportedly be revealed later.

The new leak also reveals that the OnePlus may delay the launch of the OnePlus 8 series to the end of April due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Hence, it could be available for purchase in early May. The third phone in the OnePlus 8 series may go official as “OnePlus 8s” and it could be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L SoC. It is likely to break cover by the end of the second quarter. The OnePlus 8 series phones are expected to command higher price tags than their predecessors.
