OnePlus, if you remember launched a midrange device i.e. The OnePlus X, back in 2015 so despite being a good device it did not get the good response from the customers after that the company only focused on making flagships but now it seems like that OnePlus is trying to enter the mid-range segment again with the OnePlus 8 Lite, rumoured to launch along the OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro next year. Famous leak star Onleaks has revealed the CAD renders of the upcoming phone.
OnePlus 8 Lite
As per the CAD renders, the OnePlus 8 lite has a punch-hole flat display on the front with the camera placed in the centre and there’s a considerable chin at the bottom which clearly states that it’s a lite version. On the rear, there’s a rectangular camera module which looks identical to the Samsung Galaxy A71, which houses the dual-camera with a LED flash and probably a TOF (Time of Flight) sensor on the right side of it, there’s a curved glass covering the rear panel. Volume buttons on the left, power button & alert slider on the right and Type-C, speaker grill at the bottom and of course there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack despite being a mid-range smartphone. It looks like that OnePlus took design inspiration from Samsung as the OnePlus 8 lite looks identical to Note 10 lite, S10 lite.
The device will have a 6.4 or 6.5-inch display and as there’s no physical fingerprint scanner on the rear or on the sides so it is most likely to have an in-display fingerprint scanner. The phone is expected to come with an AMOLED display though there’s no info about the resolution or the refresh rate of it, the dimensions of the phone are 159.2 x 74 x 8.6mm.
Well, it would be interesting to see what OnePlus does in the ever-crowded midrange segment as a company who had shifted its focus to flagships after the OnePlus X demise. let us know in the comment section below.
