We have already gotten used to the fact that months before the presentation of a smartphone, OnLeaks shows us its complete design in high quality renders. In the last two weeks, he has shown us neither more nor less than 7 models of Samsung phones. Previously in October, we saw how the design of the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro leaked even before the official presentation of the OnePlus 7T Pro and today, we return to bring renders of another OnePlus phone that is to come, an unexpected one: the OnePlus 8 Lite.
In 2015, OnePlus had an attempt to enter the mid-range market with the OnePlus X, a compact phone, with features of the previous high-end that did not succeed and that had reasons to do so. Since then, the brand has wanted to focus on flagships, although 2020 will change that, as they will also present a OnePlus 8 Lite, which we have already seen its design in full.
OnePlus 8 Lite: flat screen with a punch-hole and a dual camera
Having already assimilated the existence of this device. Which supposedly will arrive for the mid-range market, we will analyze the design that OnLeaks has leaked. As always, we remember that these renders may undergo some slight change. But OnLeaks is not wrong and this will be the overall design for sure. We can see a large screen phone and few frames, with the front camera inserted in the screen in a hole, but unlike the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, the camera will be centered.
Another point that sets it apart from its two bigger brothers is that the screen is flat. Depending on the dimensions of the phone, it will have a diagonal between 6.4 and 6.5 inches. So it will continue to be large. In the back, we can see that the cameras have moved to the upper left corner. Leaving the central position and we will have two lenses. We assume that the secondary will be a wide-angle. Next to the cameras, we can also see what will be a few new sensors. With this OnePlus 8 Lite, we see how the camera module is quite large and that the design of two cameras could make it more discreet, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S11.
It could arrive in the first half of 2020
On the back, The glass itself has a curve on the sides to improve the grip of the phone. But what we do not see is a physical fingerprint reader. So it will be on the screen, which will be OLED. We hope this OnePlus 8 Lite inherits the 90 Hz display of current OnePlus models. The exact dimensions of the phone are the following: 159.2 x 74 x 8.6 mm.
The multimedia speaker goes very unnoticed in the images, as it has only two very thin horizontal slots. Nor do we have a 3.5 mm jack. However, It could be available in the first half of the year 2020.
