One Plus entered the mobile market by introducing the One Plus 1 in the market at very reasonable price. The coming year may mark a return of OnePlus-branded mid-range phones after nearly four years of inactivity, according to a new leak.
Rumoured One Plus 8 lite Design
The rectangular bump houses a pair of cameras and an LED flash, while a ToF sensor is placed on the side. The OnePlus 8 Lite is said to be 8.6mm thick, possibly excluding the raised camera lenses, and will include a USB-C port, though a headphone jack is nowhere to be found. It’ll use a 6.4 or 6.5-inch OLED panel with the 90Hz refresh rate.
The catching up of competitors
The Chinese smartphone vendor has challenged rivals with lower prices for flagship phones, but its competitors have started to catch up. While OnePlus was forced to raise prices on some of its most recent phones, companies including Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, and others beefed up their mid-range phones, making them even more appealing to buyers. In fact, some of those affordable offerings match the power of 2019 flagships.

What might OnePlus be preparing to unveil? The fact that the company is making TV sets indicates it may be willing to try other products, which wouldn’t be surprising for a Chinese smartphone maker. Just look at what Xiaomi has been doing in the past few years.
