The seamless immersive viewing experience provided by the OnePlus 8 Pro’s industry-leading 120Hz display, and the sleek design and compact form factor of the OnePlus 8, together deliver a burdenless, premium user experience like never before. Following the release of our first 5G device last year in Europe, and the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren in the US, we’re now launching our first full 5G lineup, allowing more users to be among the first to enjoy the unprecedented speeds of 5G technology. Today, with the launch of the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, featuring robust performance, 5G multi-gigabit connectivity, bold designs and an ultra-smooth display, we aim to further empower consumers across the globe through an enriched digital experience with premium flagship smartphones. OnePlus 8 Pro The OnePlus 8 Pro is the newest addition to OnePlus’ ultra-premium flagship lineup. From the industry-leading display, with a 120Hz refresh rate, to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, every aspect was carefully calibrated to meet the needs of the most discerning tech enthusiasts with a refined flagship experience. 120Hz Fluid Display, Boundless Beauty The OnePlus 8 Pro boasts the industry’s most advanced 6.78” QHD+ Fluid Display with an outstanding 120Hz refresh rate, but we didn’t stop there. This is our best and brightest display to date, having earned an A+ rating from DisplayMate, the professional display review institution, setting or matching 13 records thanks to a number of factors including the display’s unrivaled color accuracy. We’ve also included advanced motion estimation, motion compensation (MEMC) algorithms, so that you can enjoy an increased frame rate of up to 120fps on more content, for reduced motion blur and crisper clarity. Robust Performance The OnePlus 8 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem-RF System, which enables staggering multi-gigabit 5G connectivity and advanced Wi-Fi 6 performance. It also comes equipped with up to 12GB of cutting-edge LPDDR5 RAM for unparalleled transfer rates of 6,400Mbps and improved power efficiency by up to 20%. Full Camera Kit With a 48MP main camera featuring a custom-made Sony sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide lens, a telephoto lens with 3x hybrid and 30x digital zoom, and a distinctive color filter camera, the OnePlus 8 Pro features our first quad-camera system to cater to the needs of even the most demanding photographers and videographers. The 48 MP main camera comes with the 1/1.4” Sony IMX689 sensor, enabling you to capture more light for brighter, clearer photos even under dim light settings. The 48 MP ultra wide-angle is no slouch either. The Sony IMX586 sensor captures more details than ever before, even in low light. It also allows you to take detailed and crisp macro shots just 3cm away from your subject. The OnePlus 8 Pro also comes with more powerful video capability, thanks to its hybrid image stabilization. You may be happy to learn that Super Stable video mode is now available, for gimble-like stability at 4k resolution. And with 3-HDR technology, the OnePlus 8 Pro has higher dynamic range, giving backlight shots clearer, more colorful details in both shadows and well-lit areas.
