OnePlus is a producer that has settled in the sector of smartphones from the higher segment for good. It looks like it will soon remind itself of users who are looking for a smartphone rather glance at the medium shelf.
OnePlus 8 Lite shown on renderings
It reminds you, because a few years ago he tried his luck in this segment. In 2015, OnePlus X hit the market, but it did not gain much popularity. Therefore, it was not surprising to focus on more expensive and more successful offers, although there were rumors that the Chinese manufacturer would come back with something for customers with a slightly less wealthy portfolio. It looks like this will be OnePlus 8 Lite.
Published renders do not cause much surprise, they suggest that the smartphone will be equipped with a display without curved edges, with an indentation on the front camera. As for the rear camera, this one should be in a fairly large island. Not everyone likes this solution, but subsequent manufacturers are starting to bet on it.
The main advantage of OnePlus 8 Lite is, however, the specification
Unofficial information shows that the screen will be large here, it can measure up to 6.5 inches. Importantly, it should be made in OLED technology and have a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Probably also an integrated fingerprint reader. At Full HD + resolution, for a medium shelf, it would be difficult to complain about something about the screen.
The greater mystery is performance. Some sources suggest that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7xx series processor will be used here. The most optimistic variant assumes that it will be the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. It would match the suggestion that OnePlus wants to focus more on 5G technology (in the mentioned processor there is an integrated 5G modem).
OnePlus 8 Lite is to operate under the control of the latest version of OxygenOS based on Android 10, have a double main camera supported by a ToF 3D sensor and a USB-C connector. Just like in more expensive models, a headphone connector should not be expected.
When will the premiere of OnePlus 8 Lite take place?
It is hard to expect that OnePlus 8 Lite will appear in the near future. It is possible that he will debut around the premiere of OnePlus 8, so in the second quarter of next year.
What would you say to such a smartphone? Of course, a lot will depend on the price. If it wasn't exaggerated and the suggestions for a very solid specification came true, it seems that OnePlus 8 Lite should have a good chance of attracting more interest.
