Full specs of OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and OnePlus 8 Lite leaked
The OnePlus 8 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2020. Thanks to an accidental early post by eCommerce site Giztop, we now know what to expect from 2020’s “Flagship Killer.”
Perhaps the most surprising revelation is CPU powering the OnePlus 8 Lite, a cut-down version of the OnePlus 8. While the standard OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro boast the flagship-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, the OnePlus 8 Lite opts for the MediaTek MTK Dimensity 1000. Despite MediaTek’s history of underwhelming SoCs, the Dimensity 1000 has shown itself to perform better than the Snapdragon 855 Plus in some benchmarks, at least according to early leaks.
Both the Snapdragon 865 and Dimensity 1000 support 5G connectivity, though the leaks make no mention of 5G support. As such, it is still unknown whether or not the OnePlus 8 family will be 5G-ready, but given OnePlus’s penchant for manufacturing “flagship killer” smartphones, 5G connectivity is still a possibility.
Here are all the specs that leaked this week:

|Price (MSRP, USD)||$799||$549||$499|
While these specifications were taken directly from Giztop’s web store, they should still be taken with a grain of salt. We haven’t seen an official unveiling of the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, or OnePlus 8 Lite, so nothing here should be seen as final. However, these specs jive with prior leaks and rumors.
If these specs and prices are true, the OnePlus 8 family may indeed return the brand to its “flagship killer” status. In a world of ever-increasing smartphone price tags, a sub-$550 phone with premium specs will undoubtedly be a hit.
