Talks of the upcoming series of OnePlus devices have been on the table. A while ago, we saw a bunch of claims that the device would be announced on the 15th of April, this year. Even OnePlus hinted on this fact a while ago. While many sources confirm this case, the hype goes on as a couple of photos surfaced today. These are taken from the set of the actual device being shot for. As the photos suggest, the device is going to be promoted by none other than Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr.

According to the article from 9to5Google, the shots were uploaded by a photographer and then immediately taken down from social media. Before moving forward, here are the photos below, to actually analyze them properly.
As we can see, there is Robert Downey Jr in the photos. Additionally, he is holding, what seems to be, the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro. In the coloured photo, we can see that the device would feature a new colour. While the shade isn’t quite clear from the photo, it seems to be some new copper colour. Now, given that the Oppo Find X2 (a sister company) featured a leather back, this may just as well. This would be similar to the OnePlus McLaren Edition.
So we have two things to look forward to. Not only will the once flagship killer feature a whole new colour, but we’d also see an announcement pretty soon. Additionally, considering the trend OnePlus follows, the device would be released a couple of weeks after the announcement. Now, given that the Covid-19 issue is spreading, Apple also made the move to shift WWDC 2020 to be solely online. Perhaps, OnePlus would do the same for the release of its upcoming series of devices.
