Images, renders and videos of upcoming smartphones are nearly always leaking.
All of these leaks are often difficult to follow, so we’ve compiled a list of this past week’s hottest rumours. Specifically, any smartphone leak that has occurred from March 7th to March 13th.
With the OnePlus 8 and Pixel 4a series approaching, we’re about to see plenty of leaks about these smartphones.
OnePlus’ upcoming handsets, the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, will focus on 5G technology, according to the company’s CEO Pete Lau.

Robert Downey Jr., the Iron Man himself, was spotted holding onto a device that might be the OnePlus 8 Pro. The famous actor and OnePlus brand ambassador, was holding the phone while shooting an ad for the company.
While we can’t be sure that this is precisely the OnePlus 8 Pro, it seems to match previous leaked renders of the handset.

There was also a sketchy leak of the Pixel 4a handset that showcased the handset in a fabric case. This leak, unfortunately, did not offer as much detail as the video.

Apple’s next iPhone might feature a rear depth-sensing camera. This would push Apple to match the multiple Android devices that launched within the last year that feature the 3D time-of-flight sensors.

Apple filed a patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademarks office that describes an interesting folding device.
To be clear, the patent describes not a phone with a foldable screen, but two independent displays that when unfolded, operate like a single screen. This seems similar to Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Neo device.
