The much talked and anticipated smartphones are finally official and the company kept its promise that its phones will cost less than $1,000. Indeed, the full-loaded Pro phone is $999 and the base configuration is $100 below that. The vanilla OnePlus 8 starts at $700. The two new models will be available on OnePlus.com starting on April 29 and will also sell through Amazon in the US as well as the major carriers.

The OnePlus 8 Pro is built around a new 6.78-inch Fluid AMOLED display, the largest for the company yet, and its first to have 120Hz refresh rate. The screen comes with 240Hz touch sampling rate to minimize input lag.

The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 865 chipset. Its performance is further enhanced by the switch to LPDDR5 RAM, which is 30% faster while using 20% less energy than the RAM on the OnePlus 7 series. The storage is of the UFS 3.0 variety.

No pop-up camera this time around like the previous Pro models as that has been replaced by a simple punch hole camera. The OnePlus 8 Pro is the first phone by the brand to feature an official IP68 rating.

The phone has two 48MP sensors plus a telephoto and an assistant module. The main cam uses the 1/1.4″-inch Sony IMX689 sensor with 1.12µm native pixels and 2.24µm binned pixels. It has omni-directional autofocus on all pixels.

The OnePlus 8 pro can record 4K video at 60fps using the new Single Shot 3-HDR feature, which captures three exposures at once, greatly enhancing the dynamic range. The camera uses a mix of Optical and Electronic image stabilization.

The other 48MP camera has a 120° ultrawide lens and also doubles as a macro camera taking snaps at 3cm distance.

The third camera is an 8MP telephoto module. The sensor has 1.0µm pixels and sits behind a lens with f/2.44 aperture and OIS. The fourth module is an all-new Color Filter camera, which will help with the rendering of various color effects.

For years OnePlus was saying that wireless charging tech isn’t ready – well, it finally is. Warp Charge 30 Wireless can charge the 8 Pro at up to 30W and can fill a flat battery to 50% in half an hour. Reverse wireless charging is supported as well.

Wired charging is still a bit faster, the 30W Warp Charge 30T goes from 0% to 50% battery charge in 23 minutes. Still, the OnePlus 8 Pro houses a larger 4,510mAh battery (up from 4,000mAh on the 7 Pro) and the new wireless charging is about as fast as the non-T Warp Charge 30.

The phone boasts 5G connectivity, of course, specifically the sub-6GHz flavor. Locally, there’s Wi-Fi 6 that tops out at 9.6Gbps – that’s faster than even the 5G modem (7.5Gbps on a mmWave connection).
