It is no secret that the next-generation smartphones from the upcoming Oneplus 8 series are in the advanced stages of their development cycle. The company, as you might be aware, is looking at launching two new handsets — the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro — in the next few weeks. Current indications are that both these handsets should be officially launched once the dust settles over MWC 2020. Anyway, the reason for this article is because of a recent leak which also includes a render of the OnePlus 8 Pro. The render is accompanied by a list of features that the OnePus 8 Pro will supposedly sport.
Let’s take a look.
OnePlus 8 Pro Leaked Render
The image above shows the front and the rear side of what is claimed to be the OnePlus 8 Pro. While things are not clear as far as the front panel is concerned, we can easily see the triple camera setup at the rear of the device. Also, clearly seen is the 3D ToF sensor and supporting camera apparatus on the small strip right next to the camera array. These design cues are in line with earlier leaks around the OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus 8 Pro Specifications (Expected)
One aspect of the spec-sheet of the OnePlus 8 Pro which does not require a leak for confirmation is the fact that it will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. In fact, all the other versions of the phone – the OnePlus 8, and the OnePlus 8 Lite – are expected t feature the new flagship-grade SoC from Qualcomm. Another aspect that does not need confirmation is with regards to the OS — which, undoubtedly, will be OxygenOS based on Android 10.
What remains unknown at this point are aspects like display size, battery capacity, and storage options. The OnePlus 8 Pro – according to the fresh set of leaks – will feature a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and 120 Hz refresh rate. In fact, the possibility of a 120Hz screen has more or less been confirmed by OnePlus’ Pete Lau.

Two SKUs with 8GB RAM and 128/256 GB storage has been confirmed. It is plausible that there will be other SKUs with higher storage and RAM configurations. The battery capacity for the OnePlus 8 Pro, as per this leak, has been pegged at 4,500 mAh. It is also said to support 50W fast charging.
Anyway, since the launch of the new OnePlus series isn’t too far out in the future, we should get more clarity on the specs of these new handsets in the next few days.
