In 2019, OnePlus changed its tradition of releasing two flagship devices every year and now the focus is on OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro to be released in Q2 2020.
They released 4 flagship smartphones – OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, as well as the OnePlus 7T Pro. The addition of the Pro variant for the OnePlus 7 and 7T was new for OnePlus which has been releasing a regular OnePlus as well as an improved T model every year.
The smartphone giant is expected to continue with similar naming convention in 2020 as rumors and hands on images of the 8 Pro smartphone have already surfaced the internet.
Hands-on Images of the Upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro Leaked
The hands on images of the One Plus 8 Pro were leaked on the Chinese social networking website Weibo. The most distinguishable feature of the display is the dual front camera punch hole notch similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10+ that was released this year.
OnePlus seems to be moving away from the pop up camera trend which was seen in the OnePlus 7 Pro this year. They are instead going for a punch hole camera enclosure like the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus on the upcoming OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones.
The hands on images also reveal minimal chin and forehead and a curved display. Most part of the design of OnePlus 8 Pro is similar to OnePlus 7T Pro except the rear cameras which seem to have a different design with the LED flash being placed in the middle of the camera array. The rear of the smartphone also has a OnePlus 5G branding which further proves that it is the 8 Pro indeed.
The device is equipped with a USB Type-C port similar to its predecessor and has a headphone jack unlike its predecessor. The comeback of the headphone jack on the 8 Pro will be a pleasant surprise for OnePlus fans.
It’s still very early for any specification leaks for the OnePlus 8 Pro considering that the OnePlus 8 hasn’t even been announced yet. However, we are expecting Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor on the device along with a 12 GB RAM variant.
The hands on leaks of the 8 Pro surfaced unexpectedly as it is still 2019 and the One Plus 8 hasn’t been announced yet. However, the images show that OnePlus is ready with a prototype or an actual alpha model of the upcoming flagship and we are excited for more leaks and rumors regarding the OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro flagships in the days to come.
