The OnePlus 8 Pro is one of three phones OnePlus is expected to announce in the first half of the year. We already know what the device looks like thanks to leaked renders that were posted on the web as early as last year. Now, live photos of the flagship have been posted on the web and they confirm what we already know.
OnePlus is sticking with the same vertical camera arrangement it used for the OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro. The image shows the camera housing holds three sensors just like its predecessors. However, the setup is now flanked by an extra camera on the left. This camera has been reported to be a 3D ToF camera. There is also a slit below the 3D camera while the LED flash sits below the camera housing.
Sadly, the image does not show the front of the device so we can’t get a good look at the punch-hole display. The OnePlus 8 Pro will have a curved display with a hole-punch on the top left corner for a single front-facing camera.
Other than a new display and an extra camera, the OnePlus 8 Pro will also have support for wireless charging. The standard/non-pro OnePlus 8 has also been reported to have wireless charging which is good news for those who plan to save some bucks and pick it up over the Pro model.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 processor will power the OnePlus 8 Pro and it will have a Snapdragon X55 modem for 5G network support alongside.
The launch date is still unknown and there are reports that it will launch earlier than its predecessor did last year. Nevertheless, when it does launch, it will be held online (at least in China) due to the coronavirus outbreak.
