OnePlus 8 prototype spotted live in china

OnePlus 8

OnePlus is a company that has not rested in recent years. With 4 flagship smartphones a year and scheduled releases every 6 months, it’s no wonder if the OnePlus 8 is already in the testing phase and made for manufacturing.

That’s why these new images make us think. This is reportedly a prototype of the OnePlus 8 or  8 Pro and there is a considerable difference from its predecessors.

OnePlus 8 Prototype has a punch-hole for the front camera

Regarding the OnePlus 7T, The Pro model has a front pop-up camera, however, the “normal” model has a notch. Well, the OnePlus 8 prototype shows us a small two-camera cutout in the upper right corner of the screen.

I personally don’t think OnePlus will swap the “Pro” model pop-up camera for a hole in the screen. The brand boasts that it has a full screen and I don’t think it will give up on that model. So we can assume that this is the “normal” model right? OnePlus 8.

But, we also have to discuss the rear of the device. This is because if this really is the OnePlus 8, the rear is completely different than the current 7T.

New color gradient never seen on the 7T series

Recall that OnePlus 7T was the first to incorporate camera modules into a circle. We then assume that this will be the design line of the future mobile phones.

Importantly, the “Pro” model did not bring this ideology. That is, it may have been a simple experiment and realize to what extent these new lines are well accepted.

Before you assume that this is a OnePlus 7T Pro from its rear, note that the alignment of the flash and rear cameras are different. That is a prototype of OnePlus. We just don’t know which one.

    Please. No. More. Curved. Edges.

    I prefer round camera, better speakers vs wireless charge and 120 MHz refresh

      120 million fps is a bit overkill

    I agree with your sentiment on curved edges. It makes the screen a fragile, a magnet for almost unavoidable reflections, and is actually less user friendly. I thought it was cool when Samsung first came out with it, until I realized it was less practical. Then the novelty quickly wore off. I’ll take a good old flat panel thank you very much. OnePlus makes fantastic phones at an excellent price, but please, ditch the curve and shave a few bucks more off the price. Or keep the price the same. Just give me the choice of a flat pannel for the love of God. For all the flaws of the Pixel 4, the fact it doesn’t have a gimmicky curved display is actually a selling feature for me.

    I’d like to see a display comparable to Pixel 4, a 5.7 inch model with strong battery life. May be a one plus watch and great ear buds. Nothing more

    Will, they needed to ditch the 7T round camera array as it was unstable (ie. Jerry Rig’s endurance-test it failed).
