OnePlus 8 Pro renders show off new Ultramarine Blue color and Case options
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks, OnePlus is about to launch new smartphones. After the highly successful OnePlus 7 series and OnePlus 7T series last year, the company is looking for another hit, and that will come in the form of the new OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. We’ve been covering the leaks and rumors for a while: we’ve had a vague idea of how these phones will look, and we’ve even gotten new renders of the smaller model, the OnePlus 8. Now, we’re getting new official renders for the OnePlus 8 Pro, the most noteworthy device from the family.
These new device renders come from renowned German leaker Ronald Quandt, who also broke the first OnePlus 8 renders just a few days ago. From initial inspection, we have a device that looks pretty similar to the regular OnePlus 8, although we already knew that. The front looks seemingly identical to the regular model as OnePlus did away with the motorized camera we saw with the OnePlus 7 Pro/7T Pro. Instead, we have a hole-punch camera to the left corner of the display, which seems to be surprisingly unobtrusive, at least judging by the renders.
The back panel features a quad camera setup (a first for an OnePlus device) with the main module holding 3 sensors and the fourth one offset to the left with the flash module. The display itself also seems to be markedly less curved than the one in the OnePlus 7 Pro, at least from leaked pics.

As for the colors, the OnePlus 8 Pro will come in an “Ultramarine Blue” option, which is a deep, strong, eye-catching blue hue. We saw an “Interstellar Glow” color of the OnePlus 8 a few days back with an Instagram-like multicolored gradient, but it seems that will be exclusive to the regular variant and will not come to the Pro (then again, we’re talking about leaks, not official information, and sometimes there’s some stuff that doesn’t leak). We do have Glacial Green and Onyx Black variants, which have previously leaked for the OnePlus 8 as well, so at least two variants will be available for both models.
We also got to know some of the case options for both the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, courtesy of Evan Blass, who shared them on his private Patreon page. We have the usual cases which include the “Karbon” carbon fiber-themed case for both phones as well as a Nylon case for the OnePlus 8. We also have 3 cases with OnePlus’ signature “sandstone” texture, including a black one for the Pro, a cyan one for both variants, and a purple one for the OnePlus 8. Judging by the images it is possible the smaller OnePlus 8 could have more case variants, but as I mentioned before, sometimes there’s stuff that doesn’t leak, so we may as well see all cases arrive at both variants.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is shaping up to be a very interesting device, and we can’t wait to know more about it come OnePlus’ announcement event.
