OnePlus 8 Lite live image reveals triple rear camera setup instead of dual cameras

“Alleged OnePlus 8 Lite live image reveals a phone with a vertical triple camera setup and no physical fingerprint sensor”

A little while ago, 91mobiles brought you exclusive OnePlus 8 Lite renders, which suggested that the mid-range phone was in development. The renders revealed a phone with a centered punch-hole display and a rectangular camera module on the back with dual cameras and an LED flash. Now, an alleged OnePlus 8 Lite live image has surfaced online, which shows us the rear panel of the phone that is more or less in line with the render. The image shows a bunch of OnePlus phones stacked in a box, with what looks to be a OnePlus 8 Lite prototype. We see the vertical camera setup of the OnePlus 8 Lite, but with triple cameras instead of dual sensors as previously reported. We also see no fingerprint sensor on the back, further suggesting the OnePlus 8 Lite will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus 8 Lite has triple rear cameras and not two, as seen in the renders, and the LED flash has been moved out of the housing.

Apart from the live image, there are no new details about the OnePlus 8 Lite. Based on our previous report, the OnePlus 8 Lite specifications could include a 6.4-inch or 6.5-inch flat OLED display with a center-alinged punch-hole cutout, Type-C port and measuring 159.2 x 74 x 8.6mm. OnePlus 8 Lite could come with last year’s Snapdragon 855 or 855 Plus SoC without 5G, while the more powerful OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro would get the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G connectivity. 

That’s all the information we so far know about the OnePlus 8 Lite at the moment. We expect OnePlus to announce the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and the OnePlus 8 Lite in the first half of 2020. Separately, OnePlus was present at CES 2020 this week to show off the OnePlus Concept One smartphone with a disappearing triple camera setup thanks to a colour-shifting glass technology.
