Upcoming OnePlus 8, 8 PRO, 8 Lite and Concept One
Oneplus fans can rejoice as the company is planning to launch several new phones in 2020. As per sources, some of the mobiles that the company will launch are – OnePlus 8, 8 PRO, 8 Lite and Oneplus Concept One.
Let’s check out the Upcoming Oneplus Mobiles in 2020 (Specs, Price, Launch Date, Features)
1. Oneplus Concept One
Recently at the CES 2020, Oneplus showcased the new Oneplus Concept One that they can launch in the future. One of the noticeable features of the Oneplus Concept One was the clandestine camera module. The rear cameras can hide using a new tech that makes the lenses disappear.
The Oneplus Concept comes with an electrochromic glass panel, which can turn transparent or opaque to show/hide the cameras.
The chromatic glass has organic particles, that turns the glass opaque or transparent when the current flows through it. The process is blazing fast and takes only 0.7 seconds.
Apart from this nifty trick, the glass also acts as a polarizer filter (similar to the ND Filter for DSLR cameras).
The ND filters can help capture videos with a wide-open aperture. It seems promising for improving smartphone video recording with bokeh.
Oneplus has partnered with Mclaren to design the phone and it comes in the iconic orange and black color combination of Mclaren. The electrochromic material used in the Oneplus Concept is the same as used in the retractable sun-roof of the McLaren’s 720S Spider sports car.
Okay… let’s move ahead to some of the rumors about the affordable OnePlus 8 Lite.
2. Oneplus 8 Lite
There are some credible leaks that suggest that the company is planning to launch an affordable Oneplus phone this year.
Oneplus launched the Oneplus X back in 2015, an affordable Android phone, but they didn’t launch any low-cost phones after that.
In fact, the company is steadily increasing its price. The OnePlus 8 Lite can cost close to Rs. 25,000 or $300 and offer a decent mix of specs and features. There were few image leaks from Slashleaks that hints that Oneplus 8 Lite can come with triple rear cameras.
The image leaks showcase a box full of devices and there is a new Oneplus device with blue color and triple rear cameras.
Also, NDTV gadgets suggest that the new Oneplus 8 lite can run on either the Mediatek Dimensity 1000 processor or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. In both cases, the phone will come with 5G support which most people are looking forward to in 2020.
Additionally, the mobile can feature a 64 MP primary camera to capture detailed images. Other cameras are going to be wide-angle and a dedicated depth sensor for portrait shots.
Also, it can have a 4000 mAH capacity battery with fast charging support. Moreover, we are expecting Oneplus to include the 90 Hz refresh rate display on the Oneplus 8 Lite.
I am really not sure if the company will launch the Oneplus 8 Lite as they have not done it in the last 5 years. But good phones are getting affordable and they are already facing the heat from phones like Redmi K20, K20 Pro and some of the Realme models.
You never know Pete Lau may decide to roll the dice.
3. OnePlus 8
The Oneplus 8 will be the successor to the OnePlus 7T and the new phone will launch in May 2020. Oneplus 8 can come with a punch-hole camera similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10. It is different than the dew-drop notch camera on the OnePlus 7T.
Further, the crucial update is going to be the rear camera – it will come with Quad-rear lenses and there will be a 64 MP primary sensor. The other cameras will be wide-angle, telephoto and a depth sensor.
Further, the phone will run on the latest Android Q, along with the Oxygen OS, out of the box. Powering the device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Processor and the Adreno 650 GPU.
Also, the Oneplus 8 can come with 6.4 Inch screen size and feature an FHD+, AMOLED, 120 Hz panel.
It can handle multiple apps with ease using upto 12 GB of Ram, the base version can have 8 GB Ram and 128 GB storage. Unlocking the device will be swift as it comes with the next generation of in-display scanner.
Also, the battery charging can be speedier with the use of upto 30 Watts chargers.
4. OnePlus 8 PRO
The Oneplus 8 Pro is going to succeed premium flagship, OnePlus 7T Pro. The phone will come with a punch-hole camera that is similar to the Samsung S10 and will also have a curved display. Further, it comes with a Quad-Rear camera with a 64 MP primary sensor from Sony. The phone can use the recently released Sony IMX 686 senor to improve the imaging prowess.
It will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Octa-Core processor and the Adreno 650 GPU for flawless gaming and multi-tasking experience.
The phone can have upto 4000 mAH capacity battery and fuel using a 50 Watts charger similar to the Realme X2 Pro.
Also, the company is unveiling a new 120 Hz display at CES 2020, that can make its way to the new Oneplus 8 Pro. There are no prizes for guessing that it will come with Android Q, Oxygen Os and up to 12 GB of DDR4 ram.
Lastly, we can expect better cameras, portrait mode video, 5G from the upcoming Oneplus 8 Pro. The phone will launch in May 2020 and can cost close to Rs. 50,000 or $700.
