Press renders of the OnePlus eight were leaked a few days ago, revealing all the colour variants the phone will come in. One of the variants has a colour gradient similar to Instagram’s logo. Now, the same source has released press renders of the OnePlus 8 Pro, and it also provides a first look at a colour variant we have not seen before.
The OnePlus 8 pro will come in three colorways – Glacial Green, Onyx Black, and a new Ultramarine Blue.
The Ultramarine Blue has a much darker shade than the Really Blue first-gen Pixel. It is a nice colour and will be quite popular among buyers. OnePlus is being smart with its colour choices by not making both phones have the same colour variants all through.
The OnePlus 8 Pro will have a punch-hole display that measures 6.78-inches, has a QHD+ resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate. Just like its predecessor, the OnePlus 7 Pro, its screen is also curved at the sides. It is reported that it has a maximum brightness of up to 1300 nits and has HDR10+ support.
The phone will also come with the same Snapdragon 865 processor inside the standard version, up to 12GB of RAM & 256GB of UFS 3.0 memory storage. On the back are quad rear cameras – a 48MP primary camera, a 48MP ultrawide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera also with 3x optical zoom, and a 5MP colour sensor. The front camera is a 16MP sensor.
OnePlus will ship the phone with support for wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. We are really curious to know if OnePlus will launch its own wireless charger alongside the phone and have been on the lookout for details regarding the charger, but nothing has come up yet.
The OnePlus 8 series launches on April 14, 2020, and will be live-streamed.
It looks like OnePlus might be reserving the rather striking Interstellar Glow colorway for the vanilla OnePlus 8 instead. But we’ve still got several pleasant options here.
Otherwise, the new images generally line up with previously leaked renders. So that means we’ve got a quad rear camera, a punch-hole display, the volume rocker on the left-hand side, and the power button/alert slider combo on the right.
OnePlus also confirmed a few key specs this week, including a Snapdragon 865 processor, UFS 3.0 storage, and LPDDR5 RAM. The company says they’ve added a few features to improve storage performance as well. Otherwise, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also expected to pack a 120Hz screen.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is also tipped to offer IP68 water/dust resistance, 30W wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and a 4,510mAh battery.
The earlier leaks also had a possible specification for the new OnePlus phones: the OnePlus 8 Pro may as well have a 6.78-inch QHD+ display, a 120Hz refresh rate screen, LPDDR5 RAM, and a quadruple-camera setup, an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, a 4,510mAh battery, plus 30W wireless charging, and 3W reverse wireless charging. The smaller OnePlus eight may also have a 6.55-inch FHD+ display, a 90Hz refresh rate screen, a triple-camera setup, LPDDR4X RAM, a 4,300mAh battery, and no wireless charging or IP rating. Both phones may also have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 5G processor.
