OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are official: 5G-ready and the company’s most powerful phones yet

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro Launch

After months of teasers and leaks, OnePlus has just unveiled its new flagship phone, called the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, in an online launch event. Both are powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 SoC, but it’s the larger 8 Pro that comes with big display and camera improvements.

As leaks have suggested, the OnePlus 8 Pro drops last year’s pop-up selfie camera mechanism for a punch-hole notch, a design choice that’s been made quite popular last year and seemingly the standard for 2020 smartphones. Additionally, the screen has noticeable curvature on the edges.

The OnePlus 8 features a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED HDR10+ Display with an FHD+ resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, and the same 90Hz refresh rate that debuted with the OnePlus 7 Pro last year.

On the back, you’ll find a triple-camera setup, although not in the circular module as we saw on the OnePlus 7T. Three cameras are present on the back: a 48-megapixel main sensor, 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel macro shooter.
