OnePlus releases a minimum of one flagship smartphone twice a 12 months, even now transferring to 2 fashions each six month in some areas. But it surely has solely ever made one mid-range gadget, 2015’s OnePlus X.

That might be set to vary as renders courtesy of trade leaker OnLeaks (through 91Mobiles) that present what he claims is a lower-spec upcoming OnePlus telephone, for context known as the OnePlus Eight Lite.

The photographs present renders primarily based on leaked sources that give the OnePlus Eight Lite a central single digicam cut-out, a flat 6.4in or 6.5in show with extra chin bezel than on the high, and twin cameras on the again. There isn’t a headphone jack (as with all current OnePlus telephones) however the wonderful three-stage Alert Slider stays.

There isn’t a spec info apart from alleged dimensions of 159.2 x 74 x 8.6mm. The absence of a bodily fingerprint sensor means there’ll possible be an in-display fingerprint sensor – which means the telephone should have an OLED display screen.

We aren’t sure that is an correct leak given OnePlus has solely simply began producing two flagships each six months (a daily and a Professional mannequin) and the very fact the OnePlus X was a relative failure. However the firm is the smartphone trade’s newest massive success story, so a mid-range telephone might be a chance and would possibly show highly regarded in India the place OnePlus is large.

If the OnePlus Eight Lite seems to be actual, it may not see the sunshine of day within the US market, the place the OnePlus 7T Professional isn’t even on sale. Fingers crossed it makes it to the UK and Europe.
