A few weeks ago we talked extensively about the OnePlus 8 series and discussed everything the leaks had to tell us. Because of the leaks, the OnePlus 8 Pro would change drastically compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro, especially when it comes to the display and the design. It was suggested that the OnePlus 8 Pro would lose on the pop-up camera and instead go for display with a punch-hole recess in front of the front camera for unknown reasons. However, it seems that OnePlus has slightly different plans for the OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus 8 Pro Price and Specs
A few hours ago, OnePlus organized an event in China where it talked about its upcoming display technology. The CEO of the company, Pete Lau, unveiled the next generation display that comes with a smoother 120Hz refresh rate, which is much higher than the 90Hz display on the existing OnePlus 7T Pro. However, there is more to the display than the higher refresh rate and a report from The Verge reveals a new image that gives us an idea of what the OnePlus 8 Pro could be.
Therefore it makes sense to review new information about the OnePlus 8 Pro and here is a complete list of everything we now know about the OnePlus 8 Pro.
The fastest OnePlus, right?
All OnePlus phones are fast and beat any other phone in terms of performance. The OnePlus 8 Pro will perform even better, and GeekBench’s scores give all the evidence. The phone will rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, which will offer huge performance improvements over last year’s Snapdragon 855 chip. This will be accompanied by 12GB RAM, which is also expected from a OnePlus device. So you can expect top-quality performance and with Oxygen OS it will provide a smoother user experience.back to menu ↑
A familiar design?
Last year the OnePlus 7 Pro showed completely new design of the company and for this year it seems to switch to the OnePlus 8 series. The OnePlus 8 Pro follows the footsteps of the OnePlus 7 Pro with a similar design, including the curved edges on the display and vertically aligned triple rear cameras. However, the leaks suggest that OnePlus could dump the pop-up camera in favor of a punch-hole cut-out for the selfie camera. However, the official image of OnePlus suggests that a mechanical pop-up camera is still present in the dummy design for the screen.back to menu ↑
The fastest rechargeable OnePlus?
We only have the leaks to rely on this information, but it could be true. The OnePlus 8 Pro could thrive on a larger 4500mAh battery and if you are worried about the 120Hz display taking a toll on the battery, a 50W fast charge system is supposed to help to replenish the power. Chances are that the new Warp Charge system can essentially use Oppo’s SuperVOOC system on the OnePlus 8 Pro. However, it is possible that a wireless charging system may still not reach the phone.back to menu ↑
Best cameras in a OnePlus, ever?
OnePlus uses the best camera hardware and this year you can expect the OnePlus 8 Pro to use the 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor for the main camera. Furthermore, there may be three more cameras in the back, consisting of a phone camera, a wide-angle camera, and a macro camera. Considering the fact that OnePlus now has special camera labs in India and a number of other countries, we can expect the OnePlus 8 Pro to outperform the existing OnePlus phones in terms of camera performance. The front camera can also see an upgrade depending on the type of display – with a pop-up camera, expect a 32-megapixel camera while in case of a dual-punch-hole cut-out, the same camera with a depth sensor can be expected.back to menu ↑
The best display of OnePlus?
OnePlus has just released a lot of information on the screen. The 120Hz refresh rate is not new anymore, but what is surprising is the 240Hz touch sampling frequency. This means that the display responds faster to touch, similar to the ROG Phone 2. The display will have a Quad HD+ resolution and it scores a higher JNCD score of
