OnePlus 8 Pro: Specifications and features:
While these are definitely the most expensive smartphones from OnePlus to date, they also are the most powerful, and might we add, feature-rich too. And the biggest proof of this is the flagship of the line-up, the OnePlus 8 Pro.
At the heart of the OnePlus 8 Pro is Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset to date, the Snapdragon 865 SoC which the company has paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage depending on your variant of choice. The phone is 5G ready and has been announced to support the same in all regions where the device can find a relevant network to latch on to.
On the outside, the phone will come with a body that features glass as the primary material of choice. The phone will also flaunt a massive Fluid AMOLED panel that’s 6.78-inches in size and can churn up to QHD+ resolutions at 120Hz. The panel is also rated for a pixel density of 513ppi and an aspect ratio of 19.8:9. There’s also support for vivid HDR10+ support for improving visual experience while watching movies and playing games.
For cameras, the phone is claimed to have been equipped with OnePlus’ most advanced camera system to date which can capture “remarkably clear photos and videos”. While we’re not sure of what to make of these claims, the set-up — on paper at least — looks to be quite promising. At the core of the set-up is a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 primary lens sat next to another 48-megapixel ultra-wide lens which boasts of a 120-degree field of view. The two have been paired with an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 5-megapixel colour filter lens. At the front, we have a Sony IMX471 lens with a sensor size of 16-megapixels.
