Leaks have also suggested that OnePlus 8 Pro could come with two 48MP camera sensors on the back. The phone is tipped to use a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor with an f/1.78 aperture, while the ultrawide will use a 48MP f/2.2 ultrawide lens with a Sony IMX586 camera sensor.
To recall, OnePlus had introduced the 90Hz Fluid AMOLED display last year and was the first to offers a QHD+ OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Further leaks suggest that the new OnePlus devices could be more expensive than last year’s smartphones. The OnePlus 8 is expected to start upwards of Rs 40,000 in India due to the more expensive Snapdragon 865 chip whereas the OnePlus 8 Pro will now compete with the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 and Apple iPhone 11.
