Finally, after all, bells and whistle, OnePlus 8 series are launched on April 14, 2020, despite the spread of COVID-19 virus. Ditching their tag of flagship killer, they have come up with a flagship device, “OnePlus 8 Pro”. The 8 Pro has finally inherited the left out specs like camera, wireless charging and IP rating. But if you don’t feel like spending more budget you can have a glance at OnePlus 8. The information on which will be provided in another post.

You can see a lot of changes in OnePlus 8 pro, compared to its earlier model; with a block lettered text “ONEPLUS” at the back of the device with a change in the size of the logo. Although the design remains the same, they have added wireless charging along with IP68 rating, making it water and dust resistant. These two features were the most requested features by the users.

Display

OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a display of 6.78 inches Fluid AMOLED QHD+ panel with a fluid 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate, with HDR10+ support. But comparing it with the S20 series, this device is equipped with the same 120 Hz refresh rate on the highest resolution, which is an additional feature of this device. Standing out from the crowd OnePlus has included the MEMC (Motion Estimate Motion Compensation) chip on their devices, which helps to upscale low fps content to adapt to the phone’s 120fps or 60fps. Since the display is curved, it is more prone to accidental touch.

Finally an OnePlus device with a quad-camera setup, Sony IMX689 48 MP sensor (Wide), IMX586 48 MP (Ultrawide), 8 MP (Telephoto), 5MP (Color Filter camera).
