The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are hot topics for smartphone enthusiasts these days. Coming to the world in less than a week, these next-generation OnePlus phones have a lot to offer, based on what OnePlus has teased and what the leaks have portrayed. More than just offering the Snapdragon 865 at a lower price, these OnePlus 8 series devices are expected to define a benchmark for premium Android phones this year, like always. Before the launch happens, some new leaks have emerged, giving us more about these phones.
Do you recall the colour variants of the OnePlus 8 that were leaked a few weeks ago? The fanciest of them all, the Interstellar Glow, had strong reflective hues that seemed to be inspired from the Samsung Note 10 Plus. Well, renowned tipster Roland Quandt has now shared new images of the OnePlus 8 Interstellar Glow and these have completely different hues. The new renders show lighter shades dominated by pink and blue hues.
Compared to the older set of renders, this one seems more befitting of the name Interstellar Glow. Maybe OnePlus was testing out different shades of the Interstellar Glow and finalised on the one with the lighter hues. Whatever be the case, this light shade of the Interstellar Glow is worth drooling.
On the other hand, what's also worth drooling are the specifications. WinFuture has managed to grab hold of the official specifications and it turns out that the OnePlus phones of this will be highly sought after by enthusiasts. The new list confirms the previous highlights but also fills in the details that were missed.
