The recent leak comes from the website RootMyGalaxy, courtesy of leaker @Thedroidleaks, who has been active for some time in the tech industry. Although the leak isn't confirmed officially, still it sounds pretty surprising. While the OnePlus 8 Pro is one of the most popular smartphones recently, but it might not be as biggest as we might expect. As per leaks, the device is going to even smaller than its predecessor. There isn't much information on the specs of the device so far, but we are not expecting a huge change from the OnePlus 7 Pro in terms of screen resolution, features, or hardware specs like the camera.
The leak suggests that the OnePlus 8 Pro will have a 6.5-inch screen, making it smaller than the OnePlus 7T Pro or Pro, both of which had a 6.67-inch display. Usually, smartphone manufacturers are aiming for a bigger screen every year and going backward seems strange. For the lite version, the phone could be even smaller than this. Other reports suggest that there will be 8GB of RAM and 12GB RAM variants. This is the same as OnePlus 7T Pro. The 12GB of RAM was in the McLaren Edition phone though, so the standard 7T Pro had the same 8GB of RAM. But since other companies are integrating into even 16GB at this point, 8GB of RAM feels a little less than the required memory.
Another leak suggests that the phone is going to have a 4,500mAh power pack. That's higher than the 4,085mAh of the OnePlusl 7T Pro. Other rumors are claiming a much higher display refresh rate that goes up to 120HZ. The device will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 processing chip, 4,500mAh battery, and 50W fast charging. We can expect some delay in the release of the phone due to coronavirus spread in China. But hopefully, we will see it in the second quarter of this year.
