OnePlus seems to have started noticing the presence of mid range users in the smartphone market. OnePlus last mid range phone was the OnePlus X, and that’s in 2015. Since then, OnePlus has been releasing flagship phones and it have been going up in terms of pricing each year. In 2019, the brand went premium in a big way with the OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro. Now, it seems like it wants to cater to the mid-range segment again with the OnePlus 8 Lite.
91mobiles has collaborated with @OnLeaks yet again to bring exclusive OnePlus 8 Lite renders and a 360-degree video. These CAD-based renders give us our first look at the design of the OnePlus 8 Lite, revealing a flat display with a centered punch-hole cutout and a rectangular rear camera module that will include two cameras and a few sensors. The display will likely be a 6.4inches or 6.5inch according to OnLeaks. The selfie camera is sitting inside the centre aligned punch hole cut out.
There is a Type-C port on the bottom of the frame, alert slider on the side and no presence of a headphone jack. At the rear, there is a vertically set up dual cameras, an LED flash and what could be a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor as well. We are yet to know the camera details of this OnePlus 8 Lite. Fingerprint sensor could not be found at the rear and that makes us think that it might utilize an under display fingerprint reader. An OLED display will probably be in charge of the viewing experience and it will be interesting if it uses a 90Hz refresh rate as seen on the premium OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro models.
The standard OnePlus 8 was leaked back in October and renders revealed that it will come with a pro version, that it is OnePlus 8 Pro, like it’s predecessors. What do you think about OnePlus diving into the midrange segment again? Let me know your taughts in the comment section below.
