Revealed by the well-known Twitter leaker Ishan Agarwal who previously shared pictures and details of other such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, are the new OnePlus devices the continued company history with impressive technical data.
The OnePlus 8 Pro will feature a 6.78-inch QHD + AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz – a step towards the smooth 90 Hz displays of the 7 Pro, 7T and 7T Pro phones, that the company released last year – and run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor with configurations available with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB memory or 12 GB RAM and 256 GB memory. The phone also has a 4,510 mAh battery.
According to the leak, the Pro will also have 5G support, four rear-view cameras, including two with 48-megapixel sensors (probably the main and ultra-wide cameras), and 8-megapixel and 5-megapixel shooters.
There is a 16 megapixel camera for selfies on the front. In contrast to last year's 7 Pro and 7T Pro, which had a pop-up front camera, the new phone will have a section in the upper left corner of the screen, according to the illustrations released by OnLeaks and iGeeksBlog.
Also new for the 8 Pro: wired and wireless 30-watt quick charge, wireless 3-watt reverse charge for wireless switching on of other devices and official water resistance according to IP68. While water resistance and wireless charging on iPhones and Galaxys have been the be-all and end-all for years, OnePlus has refused to add them to its phones.
The OnePlus 8, a cheaper variant, will feature a 6.55-inch Full HD Plus display with 90 Hz refresh rate and three rear cameras with 48 megapixels, 16 megapixels and 2 megapixels. A 16 megapixel remains on the front, but the phone uses slower RAM and has a smaller 4,300 mAh battery.
The regular OnePlus 8 has no IP rating for water resistance or wireless charging, but runs on the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and supports 5G.
It is unclear when the new phones will arrive. OnePlus did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
