Oneplus 8 will be out by May 2020 with these From around £549.
- Full screen, punch-hole cameras
- Vertical rear camera systems
- Premium finishes
The OnePlus 7T has a waterdrop notch at the top of its display, like the 7, while the 7T Pro has a pop-up front camera, allowing for an uninterrupted display. Early renders of the OnePlus 8 series suggest OnePlus will opt for the punch-hole design for its next devices though.
We expect the alert slider to remain and we expect a premium build quality too. The OnePlus 7T has a circular camera housing on the rear, while the OnePlus 7T Pro has a vertical housing. Renders suggest both OnePlus 8 models will opt for the vertical camera housing design.
- Increased resolution
- 90Hz refresh rate
- In-display fingerprint sensor
- Same setup as OnePlus 7 Pro
- Possible software improvements
It is not yet clear what camera capabilities the OnePlus 8 series might offer, but renders suggest the Pro model will offer an extra sensor alongside a triple rear camera – likely a 3D depth sensor – compared to the standard model.
We’d also expect some improvements on the OnePlus 7T series as camera quality is a huge topic in the smartphone world at the moment, with all manufacturers placing a big focus on the area in their latest devices.
- Android 10
The OnePlus 7T series launched on Android 10 out of the box so we’re expecting the same treatment for the OnePlus 8 models. We’d also expect the 8 models to get a quick update to Android 11 when it arrives later in 2020.
