In addition to the OnePlus 8, the OnePlus 8 Pro has also been announced. As usual, the Pro version is packed with more features and hardware while still sharing key specifications with its sibling.
The new OnePlus 8 Pro carries a bigger form factor. Its screen spans 6.78 inches diagonally and comes equipped with a QHD+ Fluid Display panel. It has support for HDR10+ like the smaller OnePlus 8 although the Pro model boasts a faster refresh rate of 120Hz. Additionally, its 10-bit color display makes it capable of producing 60x more colors than other smartphone panels according to the company.
There are four rear cameras for the OnePlus 8 Pro. The main shooter is a 48-megapixel sensor while a 48-megapixel ultra-wide camera is also present. There’s an 8-megapixel telephoto lens to get closer to your subjects while an extra 5-megapixel color filter sensor rounds up the imaging department. Selfies are handled by a 16-megapixel front camera.
Just like the OnePlus 8, the 8 Pro’s main camera has EIS and OIS to better aid in making your shots blur-free. Plus, OnePlus said the additional color filter sensor makes it possible to use artistic lighting effects as well as filters to creatively add elements to your photos. The company further added a feature in its camera that enhances dynamic range making it able to properly expose shots.
As for the rest of the specs, it’s powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 as the OnePlus 8 with either 8GB or 12GB RAM and storage options of 128GB/256GB. The company’s Warp Charge 30T is also here promising 23 minutes of charging from 0-50%. And to top it off, the Warp Charge 30 Wireless makes its debut for the OnePlus 8 Pro and offers wireless charging to top up its battery or use its reverse wireless charging to power other supported devices.
With these offerings, the OnePlus 8 Pro is understandably priced higher than the OnePlus 8. It will be available with a price tag of US$ 899 (approx. PhP46K) for the 8GB/128GB version and US$ 999 (approx. PhP 51k) for the 12GB/256GB storage option.
