After months of waiting, the OnePlus 8 flagship series had finally made its grand debut during an online launch event today. Once again, the company’s latest flagship series had proven to be one of the finest flagship series in the market with its groundbreaking technologies and an attractive price point.
OnePlus 8 Pro Specifications & Pricing
Let’s begin with the OnePlus 8 Pro. As its name suggests, this will be the most powerful and expensive model in the entire lineup. It goes without saying that the OnePlus 8 Pro’s front display is one of it’s main attraction.
The device has a gorgeous 6.78-inches AMOLED dual-curved display with an immersive QHD+ screen resolution. On top of that, it also has a buttery-smooth 120Hz screen refresh rate and a responsive touch sampling rate of 240Hz. This will be doubled up with up to 1,300 nits peak brightness and 10-bit color support.
Moving on, the hole-punched compartment of its front display is also home to a 16 megapixels selfie camera. An in-display fingerprint sensor will of course, be present as well.
Over on its flip-side, we will be greeted by a powerful quad-camera setup arranged in a vertical fashion. Its main camera will be a 48 megapixels Sony’s IMX689 sensor that comes with OIS support. This will be accompanied by a 48 megapixels IMX586 ultra-wide sensor which offers up to 120 degrees field of view and also serves as a macro camera.
Next up, there will also be an 8 megapixels telephoto lens which offer up to 3x optical zoom, and as much as 30x digital zoom. This will be completed with a brand new color filter camera.
Under the hood, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be driven by the latest Snapdragon 865 platform which allows the device to support both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G modes. It will be paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 flash storage.
To keep its lights on, there will be a massive 4,510mAh battery that comes with 30W Warp Charge 30T support capable of bringing the device from 0 to 50% within a short span of just 23 minutes. Moreover, the OnePlus 8 Pro also arrives with the 30W Warp Charge 30 Wireless charging and reverse charging support as well.
In terms of pricing, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be priced at US$899 (INR68,300/ S$1,270) and US$999 (INR75,900/ S$1,410) respectively for its 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB models.
OnePlus 8 Specifications
The OnePlus 8 on the other hand, features a smaller 6.55-inches AMOLED display which has a FHD+ screen resolution and a 90Hz screen refresh rate. It will maintain the same dual-curved, hole-punched display for its front panel which also has a 16 megapixels selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
At the back, we will see a toned-down camera system which has a total of three camera sensors including a 48 megapixels IMX586 main shooter, 16 megapixels ultra-wide lens, as well as a 2 megapixels macro camera. Most notably, the telephoto camera is absent on the OnePlus 8. As such, the device will miss out on those impressive zooming capabilities.
As expected, the OnePlus 8 will still be driven by the same Snapdragon 865 platform with 5G connectivity. It will also feature up to 12GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage space as well. However, it will be utilizing a LPDDR4X RAM instead of the LPDDR5 RAM which we saw on the “Pro” model.
The OnePlus 8 will be equipped with a watered-down 4,300mAh battery which also supports the same 30W Warp Charge 30T technology. Sad to say, it will not come with wireless charging support.
Finally, the OnePlus 8 will be priced at US$699 (INR53,100/ S$988) and US$799 (INR60,700/ S$1,130) respectively for its 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB models.
