New OnePlus 8 Lite image shows previous renders got the camera setup wrong
OnePlus is expected to announce three phones in the upcoming OnePlus 8 series. These include: OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and a mid-range OnePlus 8 Lite. We previously saw leaked renders of the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 Lite. Both sets of renders were released by serial tipster OnLeaks. Now, it looks like at least one of those renders was slightly off.
As per older renders, we expected the OnePlus 8 Lite to feature a dual camera setup at the back. However, a new image leaked on Slashleaks claims to show a dummy OnePlus 8 Lite phone with triple rear shooters. You can see the image above.
The suspected OnePlus 8 Lite dummy image was sourced from a video. We assume this video shows OnePlus staff talking about various OnePlus phones. The so-called OnePlus 8 Lite dummy is seen sitting quietly in a box, showing off its triple camera bump at the back.
Obviously, it’s hard to tell if this is indeed a OnePlus 8 Lite dummy or a prototype device. Nevertheless, tipster OnLeaks has also revised his render of the phone to include the additional third camera.
As a little Eye Candy, my #OnePlus8Lite leak updated accordingly, in order to match today’s prototype…

OnePlus 8 Lite camera specs
A leaked spec sheet had previously outed the camera specs of the OnePlus 8 Lite. The leak was spotted on Chinese social media website Weibo and we hadn’t really taken it into consideration until now.
It states that the OnePlus 8 Lite would get a 48MP main camera, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, and a 12MP telephoto shooter. We’d still advise readers to take these specs with a pinch of salt as none of the usual leak sources have jumped on these specs yet.
The OnePlus 8 Lite is expected to launch earlier than the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. If so, we’ll probably know more about the phone in the coming days.
