Features and specifications
True to the OnePlus heritage, the OnePlus 8 is every bit the challenger to the top flagship smartphones out there. Never one to settle, the new OnePlus 8 series packs killer hardware with refined design and craftmanship to boot.
OnePlus 8 Pro
The OnePlus 8 Pro rocks a 6.78-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display (3168×1440) 120Hz display with a 19.8:9 aspect ratio. The high-res display has HDR10+ support and received an A+ rating from DisplayMate.
Under the hood, it packs Qualcomm’s best silicon—the Snapdragon 865 chip, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
Keeping things juiced is a large 4,510mAh battery which supports 30W Warp Charge 30T fast charging (5V/6A) and 30W Warp Charge 30 wireless charging.
In terms of optics, it features a quad-camera system headlined by a 48MP main camera, and flanked by a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera (with 3cm macro), 8MP hybrid zoom camera (30x digital zoom with OIS), and a 5MP colour filter camera.
Selfies and video calls are via a 16MP punch-hole camera on the top left of the curved display.
The OnePlus 8 is the more affordable if more toned down model compared to the Pro. That doesn’t mean it isn’t deserving of the flagship title though.
It gets a more compact 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display (2400×1080) with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Under the hood, it is also sports the Snapdragon 865, paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
There’s a smaller 4,300mAh battery that also supports Warp Charge 30T fast charging technology. Sadly, wireless charging is absent from this model.
In the camera department, the OnePlus 8 has a more sensible triple-camera setup comprising a 48MP main shooter with OIS, 16MP ultra-wide camera and a macro camera.
The OnePlus features an identical 16MP selfie shooter as the Pro.
Both models run OxygenOS based on Android 10.
