The craze of making mid-range smartphones finally caught the prominent company that is known as the flagship killer. Yes, I am talking about One Plus. All of us know One Plus for typically one reason. And that is to make flagship smartphones that compete with the league leaders in the market. But little did we know that the phone which we are buying today is basically mid-rangers. Almost 82 percent of the new consumers are opting to buy phones within the 300 Dollars range. In this article, we will show you One plus 8 lite specs?
All these years, they were just targeting the top-line market? When Marques Brownie asked Carl, one of the founding members of the One Plus team, about not targeting the ‘commoners’ market, Carl simply answered it like a pro. He said One Plus is waiting for the technology that can uphold its tag in the market. That is why they have released Nord and Z.
But somewhere in the buzz where the rumors were hidden that One Plus might do something that is typically not One Plus! Yes, you read it right. So, they thought, why not give Mediate a chance to enrich a one Plus product. This is the time when the One Plus 8 Lite comes into play.
One Plus 8 and One Plus 8 Pro
Those are two brilliant phones which are now cruising the market. But those are, after all, the flagship phones! Moreover, they are faster, smoother, and fatter in terms of price tags.
But people like us, we don’t have the luxury to buy One Plus 8 lite flagship phones. That is why, despite being a wonderful company and a renowned brand, One Plus is still unable to penetrate the market deeply.
But as the winds are changing, companies are moving towards more into the mid-range market where the main potential is hidden. Just a couple of years back, the mid-range market was heavily dominated by the Chinese market. But now, big companies like Samsung have realized the hidden potential and launched their market champs, the A-series, and the M series. However, the A-series are the competitors of the mid-range, and the M series is the raiders in the lower mid-range.
So, having all this in the account, will the rumored one plus 8 lite specs be able to compete in the market? Or it will perish underneath the storm of mid-ranger? We will see that.
Good for us, we have some confirmed leaks and rumors on which we can judge the capability of the phone. So, based on the leaks of the specs, we will be dividing those into the categories mentioned below:
- Sensors and Other Features
- Water Resistance
So, without any further discussion, let us move into the main discussion, which is the design of One Plus 8 Lite.
Design of the One Plus 8 Lite
As far as the rumors are concerned, the built quality will be glass and aluminum. That means the frames will be of aluminum, finished by a glass front and back. However, there are no viable leaks on the protection of the front and the back. There will be a triple camera setup on the back with a dual-LED flash. The phone is reported to have a dimension that is pretty much the standard One. Firstly, the length will be of 159.2 mm. That means it is slightly shorter than its elder brothers.
Moreover, the width of the phone will be 74 mm. This is about the perfect side compared to the market. So, the thickness will be the usual 8.6 mm. By far, we only have the blue color option leaked. But there are more chances that the other color variants will come along the final release.
The attributes will remain the same as a typical One Plus phone. But I am a bit concerned about the fact that the phone will be lacking the punch in the speakers. Other than that, there will be a traditional USB Type C up for grabs. So, the buttons will be clicky and durable. The haptic feedback will be identical to the other One Plus 8 and One Plus 8 Pro. The main difference in the design will be the shorted height and the overall weight balance.
As the final product is still yet to be launched
We cannot give you the exact numbers as for the weight. But rest assured, One Plus is one of the few companies who spend endless days before finalizing the design and the user experience regarding it.
Overall, until now, the leaks and the rumors suggest that this phone will have a solid design that is capable of winning many hearts. So, now let us move on to the next segment, which is the display of the upcoming One Plus 8 Lite.
One Plus 8 Lite Specs
|Dimensions (mm)||159.20 x 74.00 x 8.60|
|Battery capacity (mAh)||4000|
|Screen size (inches)||6.40|
|Ambient light sensor||Yes|
Display of the One Plus 8 Lite
The most detailed info which we got is about the display of the upcoming One Plus 8 Lite. The display will be a fluid AMOLED Display. It will be a 6.4 inches screen. The screen will have a punch hole cut out as you have guessed it earlier.
Firstly the plus point of this phone, even all the One Plus phones, is that the display will have a higher refresh rate. I am guessing a 90 Hz refresh rate. But the main factor of the screen is that it is a high definition screen. So, that means one plus 8 lite will have a screen resolution of 1080 into 2400 pixels. The aspect ratio will be the usual 19:5:9. Also, the screen to body ratio will be close to 83.94 percent. The screen will have a Corning Gorilla Glass as the protection. But the version is still unknown. But overall, the display will be brilliant. The PPI Count is almost 411 PPI.
The screen will be very bright and will be very much visible in bright light conditions. Also, the high refresh rate will add a huge benefit in the transitions and screen resolutions.
So, that was the screen. Now, we will be looking at the performance of the upcoming One Plus 8 Lite.

Performance of the One Plus 8 Lite
Perhaps, the boldest decision which will be taken by One Plus in this particular phone is the chipset that they are choosing. From the very beginning, One Plus has been settled with the Qualcomm wonders. They have been efficiently using the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets with immense pride.
But this time, they will be doing the unthinkable. Even a couple of months earlier, if someone would have said that one plus 8 lite specs will be partnering with Mediatek for a particular product, I will laugh at him, hard. But now, even I scratched my head when I first heard the news.
But when I looked into it further, I was satisfied. Let us face it. Mediatek is also a prominent silicon company that is known to build powerful chipsets. Firstly, one of their warrior from the arsenal is the all-new MediaTek MT6889. However, this is a powerful Octa-Core Processor, which has a clock speed of 2.6 GHz for the first four Cortex-A 77 cores. And for the remaining Cortex-A 55 cores, it is clocked at 2.0 GHz. So, as you can see, this processor is also powerful as well. I think this will be a worthy successor of the One Plus 8 Lite.
The graphics processing unit is the Mali G77 MC9. The RAM is rumored to be 8 GB, and the internal storage will be 128 GB. But there are confirmed reports that this phone will not have an additional Micro SD Card Slot. So, even if you want, you cannot have the privilege to expand the storage.
This phone will come with the latest Android version, which is Android Version 10. This particular phone has no reports of being capable of withstanding any further updates. But the main agenda should be user experience. As we all know, One Plus Phones are one of the best phones which have the best and optimized user experience.
So, as we can see, the performance is going to be a strong one, indeed. The One Plus 8 Lite is coming to set some new benchmarks. As for MediaTek, it is a new window of opportunity for the silicon company.
So, we will be looking inside the cameras of the One Plus 8 Lite.
The camera of the One Plus 8 Lite
The primary camera of the One Plus, 8 Lite specs, has a triple camera setup. The primary camera is a 48 MegaPixel camera. It is a full angle camera which has a focal length of 26 mm. The aperture count is going to be around f/1.7 and f/1.8. However, the second camera is an ultra, full angle camera. Judging by the recent market, the ultra-wide camera usually has a 119 degrees viewing angle. So, the Ultra-wide camera is of 16 Mega Pixels. The third camera is a 12 Mega Pixels Telephoto camera. Thus, the selfie camera is a 16 MegaPixel camera.
The camera performance won’t be like the flagship mark. But it will undoubtedly be a top-notch one as far as the mid-rangers are a concern. So, the videography will most likely have the ability to shoot 4k video at a frame rate of 60 frames per second. From the front cam, we will be able to pull a beautiful and crisp 1080p videos with a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
So, we will be looking at the battery and the power management unit of the upcoming One Plus 8 Lite.

The battery of the One Plus 8 Lite
The battery will be a solid 4000 mAh battery. In other words, judging by the fact and the market, 4000 mAh will be sufficient for day-long battery life. To be the cherry on the top. So, the phone will be equipped with Wrap charging. The Wrap charging will be of 30 Watts. However, this will be able to charge the phone up to 60 percent in the first 30 minutes. So, there are confirmed reports that this phone will not have any type of wireless charging.
Sensors and Other Features
The fingerprint will be an in-display fingerprint sensor. The other sensors, like the proximity, accelerometer, gyro, and compass, will also be included in the device.
One Plus 8 Lite Specs: Water Resistance
Firstly, one Plus has always been a company that thinks that phones are not meant to be dumped inside the water. But recently, judging the market and the upcoming competitors, they had to include water resistance in the latest One Plus 8 and One Plus 8 Pro. But as this phone is set to be a mid-ranger, then it is most unlikely to have any sort of water resistance to it.
