OnePlus is one of the leading premium android brands that are present in the market at the moment. All the OnePlus smartphones have been the affordable premium for some years. This year the pricing of Oneplsu was not so affordable as its flagship was quite expensive. The company went from affordable premium to expensive premium this year and it changes a few things. Now the leaks have it that OnePlus is bringing a new mid-range smartphone next year yo normalize its marketing. Next year Oneplus 8 series will be coming with a OnePlus 8 lite which is going to be the mid-range android.
Along with OnePLus 8 and 8 pro this lite variant will also be released next year and it is nothing like these two as per the leaks. The lite version has a different design and camera set up that doesn’t match anything from the OnePlus 8 or 8 pro renders. This device has a different camera setup similar to the Samsung A series with the rectangular camera housing. No headphone jack will be on OnePlsu 8 lite but will have a USB type C port. The dimensions of this device somewhat are matching OnePlus 7t’s dimensions with 159.2 x 74 x 8.6mm physical dimensions.
The Lite version of OnePlus 8 is a good idea as far as the reactions suggest. Everyone wants OnePlus to get affordable again. The price of smartphones by OnePlus just kept on increasing recently and it went too high to be called affordable or mid-range pricing. This device with great design and premium features will be great to kill the mid-range devices by other brands. No leaks on Hardware are available for now but 3D render looks good as for now. Oneplus 8 lite won’t be the best with the specifications but the idea is to make a premium affordable smartphone.
