The leaked specs of OnePlus 8 Lite are rather interesting as it is rumored to be powered by a MediaTek processor.

As evident, OnePlus 8 Lite boasts some high-profile features and also has a sweet price point if the rumored specs are true. Yes, the MediaTek processor is a downgrade but other specifications make it a feature-packed device.

Another leak that makes the OnePlus 8 series an exciting release is the IP rating. A notable leakster on Twitter tweeted a photo that looks like OnePlus 8 and has water written on it.

It points towards the OnePlus 8 series featuring water resistance with the IP68 rating. It is one of the features that OnePlus fans expected in OnePlus 7 series but the company didn’t fulfill the expectations.
