120 Hz AMOLED display

High-resolution 120Hz AMOLED display

OnePlus teased the new 120 Hz display back in January. High display refresh rates are all the rage and do not guarantee a pure marketing blah. The difference between a 60 Hz display and a> 90 Hz display is clearly visible. The high refresh rate is not only interesting for gamers. The fluid display of all content, regardless of whether it is scrolling, swiping or streaming (MEMC), improves the visual experience immensely. Speaking of scrolling and swiping. Inputs are captured with an extremely high sampling rate of 240 Hz.

OnePlus 8 Pro Display Specifications

The OnePlus 8 Pro uses a high-resolution 6.78 inch AMOLED panel (Samsung) with a resolution of 3168 x 1440 pixels so that the content is not only displayed smoothly, but also razor-sharp. You can adjust to particularly strong colors and an outstanding black level. The display of the OnePlus 8 Pro is calibrated to the DCI-P3 color space ex works. Support for HDR and 10-bit color depth enables 1.07 billion colors to be displayed. With a maximum brightness of over 1.300 cd / m², the display remains legible even in strong sunshine.

Fast Snapdragon 865

As befits a current flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 8 Pro is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 system-on-chip (SoC). The currently most powerful Qualcomm mobile processor combines a fast "Prime Core" (2.84 GHz) and three additional Cortex-A77 cores (2.42 GHz) into a performance cluster. Four additional Cortex-A55 cores (1.8 GHz) form the power-saving cluster.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

The Snapdragon 865 is considered future-proof and will continue to provide enough performance in the coming months. The SoC's Adreno 660 GPU is up to all current mobile games. Further components of the system-on-chip are the WiFi 6 compatible WLAN FastConnect 6800 module and the X55 5G modem, with which the smartphone can also find its way in the 5G network. Bluetooth is available in version 5.1. NFC for contactless payment is of course also available.

OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS Android 10

The rest of the hardware data is also impressive. OnePlus relies on fast LPDDR5 memory and UFS3.0 data storage. Depending on the memory configuration, 8GB or 12GB main memory and 128GB or 256GB data storage are available. The data memory cannot be expanded using a microSD memory card. The operating system is OxygenOS based on Android 10

Quadruple camera with 30x zoom

OnePlus 8 Pro 48MP quad camera

The vertically arranged quadruple camera is located on the back. The following sensors are installed:

  •  48MP Sony IMX689 main sensor with f / 1.7 aperture
  •  48MP Sony IMX586 ultra wide angle camera with a field of view of 120 degrees and f / 2.2 aperture
  •  8MP telephoto zoom camera with f / 2.4 aperture
  •  5MP ColorFilter camera 

A special feature of the main camera is the size of the Sony IMX689 sensor. The 1 / 1.4 inch sensor is able to capture more light, which in turn reduces the image noise and expands the dynamic range. At the same time, the sensor supports dual native ISO, which significantly increases the low-light performance.

The telephoto zoom camera supports a 3x hybrid zoom and a 30x digital zoom. So that the enlargement does not end in blurred images, the telephoto zoom camera is also equipped with optical image stabilization. If you like to play with color effects and filters, you will definitely like the ColorFilter camera. Recordings can thus be staged in a particularly artistic way.

Stereo sound

Of course, the OnePlus 8 Pro also has numerous AI functions on board. One is the 3-HDR mode. Not only images from a bracketing series, but also videos are combined to form one recording. The main camera records videos in a maximum of 4K. The stabilization takes place optically and electronically (OIS + EIS), which ensures smooth videos with a cinematic touch. The sound is recorded by 3 microphones in the best stereo quality. The 16 MP front camera is housed in the best punch-hole fashion, in the top left of the display.

30 watt wireless warp charge

OnePlus 8 Pro Warp Charge 30 Wireless

At last! The OnePlus 8 Pro can be charged wirelessly! The wireless charging solution Warp Charge 30 Wireless charges the 4510 mAh battery to 30 percent in 50 minutes.

Warp Charge 30T brings the battery to 23 percent in just 50 minutes.

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus 8 is the cheaper model in the series. The differences between the Pro and the standard model are somewhat clearer with the OnePlus 8 Series than with other manufacturers. Starting with the display, the OnePlus 8 offers a 6.55 inch AMOLED panel with “only” 90 Hz refresh rate. Instead of the fast LPDDR5 memory, the slightly slower LPDDR4X RAM is used.
