We are getting closer to the OnePlus 8 series launch that is reportedly scheduled to debut in April. The lineup that consists of a standard, Pro and Lite variants have been subject to a lot of leaks and rumours leaving nothing to the imagination. Now, Marvel Universe star Robert Downey Jr. was spotted holding the OnePlus 8 Pro in a leaked image that seems to have been taken during a photoshoot or a video commercial shoot. Notably, the Hollywood actor is OnePlus’s brand ambassador and both had previously partnered for OnePlus 7 Pro.
At first glance, the device in the unseen image from the shoot looks like OnePlus 7T Pro. But closer observation reveals an extra sensor that is placed beside the vertically stacked triple camera setup in the centre. The OnePlus 8 Pro is also revealed in an Orange/Peach colour shade. The design falls in line with the previously leaked renders of the smartphone. Considering that the launch is closer, it isn’t a far fetched assumption that the image was taken during an ad campaign.
As for the technical specifications, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are confirmed to arrive with 5G connectivity, 120Hz Fluid Display with AMOLED screen and punch-hole selfie camera. Both the smartphones will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 865 processor with integrated X55 modem. The devices will arrive with up to 12GB RAM. The standard variant will feature triple rear cameras while the latter is expected to be equipped with quad-cameras. The OnePlus 8 series is also tipped to come with IP698 water and dust resistance rating. The Pro model is rumoured to offer wireless charging support.
Recently, CEO Pete Lau said that the OnePlus 8 series will carry a higher price tag but it won’t be anywhere near the $1,000 mark.
