OnePlus8 Series: What should you expect

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro have dominated the rumor mill lately. Frankly, we don’t really expect anything different, until the April 14 official unveiling event finally takes place on Tuesday at 8.30pm IST. While all the leaks have brought a lot of information on the devices they have also resulted in a sort of overload, making it hard to get the full picture. Hence this more concise round-up of all the things we currently know, or at least think we know about the upcoming phones., up until this point. And mind you, there is actually very little left to uncover.

A massive leak from the other day helped us compile the nifty table below with rather detailed specs.

As you can see the screen is going to be one of the major differences with the vanilla OnePlus 8 getting a 6.55-inch 90Hz Fluid AMOLED to display if FullHD+ resolution, while the Pro will receive a 6.78-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED unit capable of 120Hz. 

 The camera department also has some notable variations. The OnePlus 8 will have a single 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera, alongside 16MP ultrawide and 2MP macro units. 

 The OnePlus 8 Pro gets a much larger 48MP sensor - Sony IMX689 for its main camera. Its ultrawide gets the smaller, but still pretty big Sony IMX586 48MP, complete with macro mode for shots from as close as 3cm. Then there is an 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom and OIS. The final 5MP unit is actually expected to function as a supplementary color sensor. 

Some less obvious aspects of the OnePlus 8 duo, worth pointing out, include a stereo speaker setup on both, plus an improved vibration/haptic motor. Both will boot Android 10, complete with OxegenOS and Dark Mode 2.0 with improved app support. It also seems like the higher memory skew of 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage won’t be available in all of the colors that the basic 8GB/128GB one will have. 

The design in the images you see here were confirmed by an official teaser video, released by OnePlus itself, so we don't expect any surprises when it comes to the look of the phones. Pricing, on the other hand, might come as a bit of a shock to long-time OnePlus fans that still remember the days the brand used to make affordability its top priority. The regular OnePlus 8, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, is expected to retail at €729. The 12/256GB, bumping things up to €835. For the OnePlus 8 Pro, we have €930 and €1,020, respectively, for the two skews. Sales for both are expected to kick-off on April 30. That applies to global markets.
