(OnePlus 8 Pro Review)
Release Date and Prices of OnePlus 8 Pro & OnePlus 8 Pro Review:
After many months of “warming up,” substantial portions of insiders and renderings, OnePlus presented its new product at its April 14 online presentation. Interestingly, in 2019, the seventh generation was shown a month later – in May.
Smartphone sales will begin in the same month – April 21 in Europe, and on the 29th, it will go to retailers in the United States. The device will get to Russia, most likely it will happen in May-June.
OnePlus has long moved away from the concept of low-cost “flagship killers.” And the cost of OnePlus 8 Pro came to the psychologically important mark of $ 1000 (73.2 thousand rubles at the exchange rate on April 14, 2020).
That is how much they will ask for the maximum version of 12/256 GB. The basic version of 8/128 GB is slightly cheaper – $ 899 (66 thousand rubles).

OnePlus 8 Pro Review received one of the most advanced displays in smartphones today. It is a 6.78-inch screen with sloping edges and a resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels.
The matrix, called Fluid AMOLED, is capable of updating the image at 120 Hz and has a huge brightness of 1300 nits. By the way, unlike the predecessors with a front-facing camera leaving the case, a selfie camera embedded in the screen is used here, the eye of which is located in the upper left corner. According to the manufacturer, the area of the screened fingerprint sensor has become larger, and the accuracy of operation is higher.
But so far, it has been made all using the same optical technology and not ultrasound.
The flagship case of one of the most famous brands in the world is made at the highest level? The front and back panels are made of Gorilla Glass, and between them is an aluminum frame.
The smartphone is protected against water and dust according to the IP68 standard (1.5-meter immersion for half an hour). Outwardly, the eighth generation has changed little compared to the “sevens” – a slightly different design of the central camera unit can be added to the “eye” of the front camera mentioned above.
Fortunately for fans of the brand, OnePlus did not copy the clumsy square platform for photosensors, the fashion for which was launched in Apple in the fall of 2019. It is still the same vertical “column,” only the flash from the bottom moved sideways.
By the way, the vibration of the OnePlus 8 Pro case will become even more “noble,” after all, the new Haptic Vibration 2.0 Vibro motor is used here. The smartphone will be available in three colors: Glacial Green, Ultramarine Blue, Onyx Black.
OnePlus 8 Pro Review about CPU, memory, communications:
Like most flagships in the first half of 2020, the OnePlus 8 Pro Review is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. The octa-core processor, made using the 7-nm process technology, runs at a maximum clock speed of 2.84 GHz.
The Adreno 650 video accelerator is responsible for the graphics. There is Enough memory in the smartphone, but there could be more for the flagship of the 20th.
The basic version is equipped with 8 GB of RAM (the chip is made using advanced LPDDR5 technology) and 128 GB of permanent memory (fast UFS 3.0). The extended and maximum options are 12 and 256 GB, respectively. Traditionally, there is no support for memory cards (you need a card – go to the relative Realme), but there is a slot for two Nano-SIMs.
Camera: OnePlus 8 Pro Review
The creators of 8 Pro worked on the cameras of the smartphone because it was precisely the lag in this part that OnePlus smartphones were criticized last year.
So there are four sensors. The main 48 megapixel (Sony IMX689) has a larger optical format of 1 / 1.4 inches with optical stabilization. The wide-angle is a 48MP Sony IMX586 with a lens that can take photos and videos at 120 degrees.
The OnePlus 8 Pro Review telephoto camera is 8 megapixels with an optical stub and a triple optical zoom. If the magnification is small, then there is a 30x digital zoom. Finally, the fourth sensor is a 5MP depth sensor.
Smartphone tightened image quality in the dark thanks to the Nightscape 3.0 mode. Seriously should grow and the ability to record video. An interesting feature is Audio Zoom, thanks to which three microphones of a smartphone can “zoom in” or “zoom-out” certain sounds when recording video.
The latter, by the way, can be written in the expanded HDR color range.
The 16 MP front camera (Sony IMX471) has fixed autofocus and, for some reason, only writes video in 1080p.
Battery: OnePlus 8 Pro Review
The battery of the OnePlus 8 Pro Review has grown to 4510 mAh. But that is not the point. Finally, the flagship OnePlus received wireless charging.
Yes, what – at 30 watts! Warp Charge can charge your smartphone by 50% in 30 minutes. Interestingly, the power of fast wired charging is also 30 watts. There is also a 3-W reversible wireless charging of external devices.
OnePlus 8 Pro Release Date:
OnePlus 8 Pro will be presented at one event along with the “eight.” Insiders say that it will be held this spring. It can be assumed that, by analogy with previous generations, the presentation will take place in May.
The smartphone is unlikely to get to the official Russian retail, and the “transporters” will begin selling closer to the summer.
Price OnePlus 8 Pro:
There is no information on the cost of the 2020 Pro version yet, but it is unlikely to be very different from what we saw in the case of the 7T Pro. So, at the start of sales, this model was offered in China for 6400 yuan (58 thousand rubles). Not cheap, but the specs of the OnePlus 8 Pro should be worth the price.
