It might be that fitting a smaller screen and putting just two cameras on the back of the phone are all the compromises that OnePlus is going to make, but we shouldn't have to wait long to find out: the OnePlus 8 handsets are expected in the first half of 2020. A little while ago, we got the leaked hands-on image of the OnePlus 8 Pro which hinted at a possible dual punch-hole display coming up with the device. As anyone might expect, this telephone would downsize to "only" two cameras on the back versus three on different variations (however there have all the earmarks of being a depth sensor), and it wouldn't have flashy highlights like a curved display. Its design is similar to the Samsung Galaxy A91 and the leaked renders of the Galaxy S11 and Note 10 Lite. Leaked photos, according to the company OnePlus 8 in light poncho display and a dual rear camera setup is given.

The phone's dimensions are 159.2 x 74 x 8.6 millimeters, making it taller than the OnePlus 7. This mid-range phone looks to have a flat, non-curved display and a curved rear glass finish that is apparently a mirror-like finish. The setup is likely to comprise a standard wide sensor, a telephoto or an ultra-wide-angle lens, an LED flash unit, and possibly a ToF sensor.

As of now, information about its other specifications has not been revealed. It also means an under-the-display fingerprint scanner is also on the cards. Features such as AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, warp charging can also be seen in the phone. The OnePlus 8 Lite is said to be 8.6mm thick, possibly excluding the raised camera lenses, and will include a USB-C port, though a headphone jack is nowhere to be found.
