OnePlus has a new phone coming. The company has already taken to teasing its next device on Twitter and Instagram, with CEO Pete Lau posting on Tuesday that the phone will arrive first in Europe and India. Now, we have some more details on the front cameras, with a new report indicating the forthcoming phone will have two selfie cameras. 

According to Android Central, quoting an "insider source," the next OnePlus phone will have dual 32- and 8-megapixel cameras on the front, a first for a OnePlus device. The cameras, the site notes, will be located in a cutout in the top-left corner with the 32-megapixel camera the main shooter and the 8-megapixel sensor a wide-angle lens.

The company's current  OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro each have a single, 16-megapixel front camera. 

OnePlus declined to comment.
