    A few weeks ago, we talked about the OnePlus 8 series in-depth and discussed everything that the leaks had to tell us. Going by the leaks, the OnePlus 8 Pro would change drastically over the OnePlus 7 Pro, especially when it comes to the display and design. It was suggested that the OnePlus 8 Pro would lose out on the pop-up camera and instead go for display with a punch-hole cutout for the front camera for unknown reasons. However, it seems that OnePlus has slightly different plans for the OnePlus 8 Pro.

    A few hours ago, OnePlus hosted an event in China where it talked about its upcoming display technology. The company’s CEO Pete Lau unveiled the next-generation display that comes with a smoother 120Hz refresh rate, which is much higher than the 90Hz display on the existing OnePlus 7T Pro. However, there’s more to the display than the higher refresh rate and a report from The Verge reveals a new image that gives us an idea of what the OnePlus 8 Pro could be.

    Hence, it makes sense to go over new information surrounding the OnePlus 8 Pro and here’s a complete list of everything we know about it now.

    A familiar design?

    Last year, the OnePlus 7 Pro showed a completely new design from the company and it seems to carry t over for this year with the OnePlus 8 series. The OnePlus 8 Pro will follow the footsteps of the OnePlus 7 Pro with a similar design, including the curved edges on the display and vertically aligned triple rear cameras. However, the leaks suggest that OnePlus could ditch the pop-up camera in favour of a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. That said, the official image from OnePlus suggests otherwise with a mechanical pop-up camera still present in the dummy design for the screen.

    Hence, chances are that OnePlus could stick to the pop-up camera from the OnePlus 7 Pro in order to maintain the notch-less display.

    The best display from OnePlus?

    OnePlus has just released a lot of information about the display. The 120Hz refresh rate isn’t new anymore but what’s surprising is the 240Hz touch sample rate. This means the display will respond faster to touches, similar to the ROG Phone 2. The screen will have Quad HD+ resolution and it scores a higher JNCD score of Impressive!

    The fastest OnePlus, right?

    All OnePlus phones are fast, beating every other phone in terms of performance. The OnePlus 8 Pro will perform even better and GeekBench scores already give proof. The phone will rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip, which will offer massive performance improvements over the Snapdragon 855 chip from last year. This will be accompanied by 12GB RAM, which again is expected out of a OnePlus device. Hence, you can expect top-grade performance and with Oxygen OS, it will offer a smoother user experience.

    The quickest charging OnePlus?

    We only have the leaks to rely on this information but it could be true. The OnePlus 8 Pro could thrive on a bigger 4500mAh battery and if you are worried about the 120Hz display taking a toll on the battery, a 50W fast-charging system is supposed to help with the power top-up. Chances are that the new Warp Charge system could essentially use Oppo’s SuperVOOC system on the OnePlus 8 Pro. However, a wireless charging system might still won’t make it to the phone.

     

    Best cameras in a OnePlus, ever?

    OnePlus uses the best camera hardware and this year, you can expect the OnePlus 8 Pro to use the 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor for the main camera. Other than that, there could be three more cameras at the back, comprising of a telephoto camera, wide-angle camera and a macro camera. Given that OnePlus now has dedicated camera labs in India and a couple of other countries, we can expect the OnePlus 8 Pro to do better than the existing OnePlus phones in terms of camera performance. The front camera can also see an upgrade depending on the type of the display- with a pop-up camera, expect a 32-megapixel camera whereas in case of a dual-punch-hole cutout, expect the same camera with a depth sensor.

    Most expensive OnePlus yet?

    No, that has to go to the OnePlus Concept One if it makes it to mass production right now. However, every generational upgrade sees OnePlus hike the prices and with two other models taking care of the lower end of the spectrum, expect OnePlus to price the OnePlus 8 Pro at a starting price of more than Rs 60,000. That will help it take on the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the iPhone 11.

    To help with that cause, OnePlus might also launch the OnePlus 8 series earlier than usual. Rumours suggest that OnePlus 8 series could debut in March just after Samsung’s Galaxy S20 goes on sale globally.
