Even though the OnePlus 7T series was launched only last month and there are still months before we will see another OnePlus flagship, we have started to see leaks and reports about the latter. The latest leak features a couple of real-life photos of a smartphone claimed to be the OnePlus 8. The leak has been shared by Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD and it shows the device from the front as well as the back.
The first image of the alleged OnePlus 8 shows the back panel design. It has a vertically aligned camera setup with multiple camera sensors in the center. The alignment is similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro but it has all the camera sensors and LED flash within the single module. In other words, it is a design that OnePlus has not used on any of its existing smartphones. The camera setup is followed by the usual OnePlus logo and "OnePlus 5G" text branding at the bottom.
Now coming to the front panel, one can see that the rumored device has a curved display panel. It features full-display experience with negligible bezels and no notch. It is hard to make from the leaked shots but MKBHD tweet mentions that there is a dual punch-hole cutout meant for dual selfie cameras.

This is pretty much what the latest leak tells us about the OnePlus 8. One of the recent leaks talked about OnePlus' plans to offer a 120Hz refresh rate display with the next-gen flagship. It will be an improvement over the 90Hz display available on current generation OnePlus flagships except OnePlus 7.
