Thanks to a series of leaks and rumors we had a fair idea of what to expect from OnePlus 8 series. The company has finally pulled the wraps from OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro at an online-only event. The new devices from OnePlus arrive with a series of improvements and new features and the list includes 5G support.
OnePlus 8 Pro Features, Specifications
OnePlus 8 Pro comes with all the bells and whistles that one would expect from a flagship device. It features a 6.78-inch SAMOLED HDR10+ QHD+ display that offers a 120Hz refresh rate. The 120Hz refresh rate means the OnePlus 8 Pro will feel notably smoother than almost every other smartphone with displays that offer a lesser refresh rate. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 coupled with 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. On the storage front, the OnePlus 8 Pro can be had in 128GB/256GB UFS 3.0 storage variant.
Camera options on the OnePlus 8 Pro include a quad-rear camera setup. It consists of 48MP IMX 689 sensor with OIS, 48MP Ultra-Wide-Angle sensor, 8MP Telephoto lens, and a 5MP color sensor. The front camera shapes up in the form of a 16MP sensor. Most importantly, the OnePlus 8 Pro gets an IP68 rating, a feature that was sorely missed on its predecessor. It is also worth noting that OnePlus 8 Pro comes with an in-screen selfie camera cutout as opposed to the mechanical front camera. Furthermore, the custom sensor will help in gaining ISO levels with the help of dual gain converters.
Connectivity features on the OnePlus 8 Pro include 5G, 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.1LE, NFC, GPS, USB Type-C and NanoSIM+eSIM slot. The device is backed by a 4510mAh battery that supports up to 30W Fast Charging (both wired and wireless) and runs Oxygen OS based on Android 10.
