EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ONEPLUS 8 AND 8 PRO

Last year Oneplus launched four smartphones (Oneplus 7 and 7pro and later the Oneplus 7t and 7t pro) which new and high-end specs like 90hz and others. This we hope for a bump up in all areas of the smartphone.

New leaks about the Oneplus 8 and 8 pro keeps arriving and now there is a screenshot of the “About Phone” of the upcoming handset that has been posted online along with TPU case designs.

Release date and price

Oneplus typically announces four phones in a year but in 2020 looks like they are stepping up the pace, expected to announce the Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro as a Lite version of their phone. The phone is supposed to be released in May 2020. Last year the Oneplus 7t was retailed around £549 and the Pro version also starting at £699. We expect the prices of the Oneplus 8 series to be in that price range.

Display

  • Oneplus 8: 6.4inch Oled display at 2400 by 1080. 120hz or 90hz
  • Oneplus 8 Pro: 6.7inch Oled display at 3140 by 1440, 120hz
  • And an in-display fingerprint sensor

Oneplus said it’s not going back to 60hz display, meaning you might get 90hz on the Oneplus 8 and 120hz on the Oneplus 8 Pro. That 120hz display has been shown off by Oneplus so there’s a high possibility the upcoming Oneplus phone might be rocking it.

Also, the 120hz display will make the phone feel very fast and the video would be much smoother. We are expecting both the 8 and 8 Pro to have a curved display just like the Oneplus 7 Pro and &t Pro from last year, but the Lite version will have a flat display.

Design

Both phones might spot a full-screen Punch-hole camera and also come with some sort of water resistance. A leaked spec suggested an alloy frame with glass back using gorilla glass 6. Also, the Oneplus 8 might have an IP53 and the 8 Pro an IP68 water-resistant rating.

Hardware

  • Snapdragon 865
  • 5G capabilities
  • 8GB RAM and 128 Storage or 12GB RAM and 256 storage
  • 4000/4500 mah battery with wireless charging

Thanks to the screenshot of the About Phone, we know it’s rocking a snapdragon 865 which will have 5G capability, 8GB RAM and 128 Storage or 12GB RAM and 256 storage.

The Oneplus 8 will have a 4000mah battery with support for 30watt warp charge and the Pro version will have 4500mah battery with 50watt super warp charge. There might be also wireless charging.

Cameras

  • Triple camera setup on both Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro
  • Front Time of Flight sensor (ToF) on 8 Pro

Early leaks suggest that there will be a single camera on the Oneplus 8 and double cameras on the 8 Pro that is the normal camera and a “Time of Flight” Sensor which will be used for 3D face recognition. The front cameras of both phones might come with a 32-megapixel sensor.

Both phones might have a 64-megapixel f/1.7 main camera, 20-megapixel f/2.2 ultrawide camera, and 12-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto camera.

Software

Both the Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro will launch on Android 10 out of the box.
