OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro could launch in a new green colour option, according to a new leak. In a tweet, tipster Ishan Agarwal said that there will be a new green colour variant for both the phones. He has also revealed that the new OnePlus 8 phones could launch sooner than expected in late March or April.
OnePlus typically launches new phones in May, which was the case with OnePlus 6 as well as last year’s OnePlus 7. However, the latest information seems to suggest OnePlus could release its new flagship series sooner. It is unclear if OnePlus 8 Lite will launch alongside the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro at the same event or later.
For those unaware, OnePlus 8 Lite is a rumoured affordable device that OnePlus could launch in its OnePlus 8 series. It is said to be priced lower than the standard OnePlus 8 and top-end OnePlus 8 Pro. OnePlus 8 Lite could compete with the likes of Redmi K20 Pro and Realme X2 Pro in the sub-Rs 30,000 price segment.
