The OnePlus 8 rumors are starting to fly fast and furious, which means that new flagships from OnePlus are all but certain to arrive soon. But what can we expect from the upstart phone maker this time around?
OnePlus has already given us a hint of what's to come, showing off its Concept One concept phone in January. That device features a new electrochromic glass tech, a first for smartphones, that changes from opaque to transparent through the use of an electric current, concealing the rear cameras when they're not active. However, the Concept One is just that — a concept, and not slated for production.

As for the phones OnePlus will release this year, the company tends to take an iterative approach to design, improving its smartphones twice a year. There’s nothing to suggest the company is preparing a radical departure from the general design and feature set established in its current models, the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T.
Still, early OnePlus 8 renders hint at a change for the handsets’ front-facing camera arrays, as well as the addition of a fourth, time-of-flight depth-sensing lens on the back of the new Pro variant. A revamped 120Hz display will serve as one of the phones' headline features, according to early testing by DisplayMate.
