There have been multiple rumours and leaks recently revealing that the OnePlus 8 Pro will come with a display camera hole. The OnePlus 8 Pro Leak repeatedly mention the camera hole’s existence, making it almost certain that the phone will have a display camera hole. GizmoChina, the tech news outlet, shared an image of a seemingly legitimate OnePlus 8 Pro screen protector. The screen protector also comes with its top-left edge cut off, clearing any doubts fans had about the display camera hole.
OnePlus 8 Pro Leak
If leaks are accurate, the newest OnePlus phones will include a camera hole on the top-left corner of its display. The design choice is not shocking at all since a lot of phones in 2020 opt for this design. Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S20 flagships will also sport a display camera hole in the centre. Other upcoming devices like the Huawei P40 are also expected to follow the same trend and include a pill-shaped display camera hole. Even Samsung’s second foldable smartphone – the Galaxy Z Flip will sport a display hole.
The source shared two images of the screen protector. The first one comes with the edge cut off, while the second one does not. The first screen protector appears flat, while the second one is curved. The difference in the two protectors could only be revealing the material of the protectors, and nothing else. The first one looks like it’s made of plastic, and the second one looks like an authentic tempered glass protector. CAD-based renders of both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro surfaced last year. Based on these renders, the two phones are expected to feature remarkably similar designs.
The upcoming flagships will feature 120Hz displays and a Snapdragon 865 processor. Both variants will be made out of metal and glass and will feature a curved display. The primary difference between the two will be visible on the back since the camera modules will look slightly different. The phones will have super slim bezels, and the backsides of the phones will be curved as well. The alert slider will surely make a comeback, and so will the in-display fingerprint scanner.
OnePlus 8 series
Out of the box, the OnePlus 8 series phones will come pre-loaded with Android 10, along with the standard OxygenOS skin. The phones will come with a warp charger in the box, and the Snapdragon 865 will power the upcoming OnePlus flagships.
Both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are rumoured to boast proper dust and water resistance certifications – which is a first for OnePlus’ devices. Both devices will also feature a high refresh rate 120Hz display according to the leaks. The phones are expected to arrive in Q2 2020, probably in April or May.
