OnePlus 8 Lite Leak Shows Off More Cameras Than We Expected

By Tom Pritchard on at

Despite the fact that OnePlus didn't seem able to properly differentiate between the four phones it released last year, it seems the company is pushing on releasing three phones at once early next year. The OnePlus 8 Lite has been leaked before, but now new imagery suggests it'll have more cameras than everyone expected.

Existing leaks all suggested that the OnePlus 8 Lite would come with two rear camera lenses, rather than the three expected on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.But another leaked image suggests that there will actually be three on there after all, which means you can never believe what you see on the internet.

This box of phones was spotted at an event attended by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, and right at the front you can see an unannounced phone with three camera lenses. It's not the concept currently being shown off at CES, because as we've seen that's got a central camera array. Likewise the difference in lens placement suggests it won't be the 8 or 8 Pro, both of which are likely to have camera designs similar to those found on the 7T and 7T Pro.

Then again this could be a random prototype, because images of those do leak from time to time. But it seems a bit odd that the OnePlus CEO would be carrying around a box of unfinished phones.

We're just going to have to wait and see what happens, though this is a good reminder to stay sceptical of everything we see. [TechRadar]
