New leaked information about OnePlus' next flagship shows that it may be in a really smooth sea foam green shade, and that it may be the first OnePlus phone to be charged wirelessly (via Android Police).
The new green color for the new device, which is likely to be referred to as OnePlus 8 Pro, was revealed today in what appeared to be leaked press renderings shared by @OnLeaks and iGeeksBlog.

These plots also show that OnePlus apparently dropped the OnePlus 7 Pro's pop-up selfie camera in favor of a hole-punch display, a change that was already rumored in October.
And yesterday, the Leaker Ishan Agarwal announced obvious specifications for both the OnePlus 8 Pro and the smaller standard OnePlus 8. The OnePlus 8 Pro may have a 6.78-inch QHD + display, a 120 Hz refresh rate screen, LPDDR5 RAM and quad camera setup, IP68 water and dust resistance, a 4,510 mAh -Battery, 30 W wireless charging and 3 W reverse wireless charging. The OnePlus 8 may have a 6.55-inch FHD + display, a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a triple camera setup, LPDDR4X-RAM, a 4,300 mAh battery and no wireless charging or IP protection . Both phones may also have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 5G processor.
Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, told The Verge in January that his next phone would have a 120 Hz display. It is therefore not surprising that the OnePlus 8 Pro leaks seem to confirm this. A 120 Hz display would be an improvement over the OnePlus 7 Pro's 90 Hz screen, although it appears that the standard OnePlus 8 remains at this lower refresh rate.
It is also not surprising that the OnePlus 8 Pro can be charged wirelessly. In January, the company joined the Wireless Power Consortium, the group that manages the Qi standard for wireless charging.
