    Hi friends,

    We just finished our launch event for the OnePlus 8 series – the most powerful and beautiful flagship smartphone series we have ever created, and we couldn’t be more excited. 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.

    Warp Charge 30 Wireless
    The OnePlus 8 Pro is the first OnePlus device with the new and powerful Warp Charge 30 Wireless charging solution, allowing you to charge its 4510mAh battery to 50% power in just 30 minutes.

    The OnePlus 8 Pro comes in three color options: Onyx Black, Ultramarine Blue and Glacial Green. The Ultramarine Blue and Glacial Green options sport OnePlus’ new generation of matte-frosted glass with a higher degree of haze, giving it an unprecedented smooth and fine texture.


    OnePlus 8
    With a polished design, vibrant display, and 5G connectivity, the OnePlus 8 is the company’s newest compact flagship device, rocking the same Snapdragon 865 and the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, for a smooth experience with multi-gigabit 5G connectivity.

    90 Hz Fluid Display
    The OnePlus 8’s spacious 6.55” Fluid Display delivers a 20:9 cinematic viewing experience with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth viewing, while the display’s impressive color accuracy ensures that every last detail appears natural and true to life.

    Thanks to HDR 10 and 10+ support, photos and videos are sharper and more vibrant. The OnePlus 8 also received an exceptional A+ rating from DisplayMate, setting or matching 10 of their performance records.

    The OnePlus 8’s versatile camera system is comprised of three powerful cameras to capture every moment in splendid detail. The main camera features Sony’s 48MP IMX586 sensor for capturing images with superior clarity, while the 16MP ultra wide-angle lens can easily fit sweeping landscapes into the frame, thanks to its 116-degree expansive view.

    Weighing only 180 grams and just 8mm thin, the OnePlus 8 is one of the most compact and lightweight 5G phones in the industry.

    Similar to its Pro counterpart, the OnePlus 8 comes in Onyx Black and Glacial Green, as well as a brand-new color variant that captures a beautiful, wide array of colors—Interstellar Glow.


    Verizon Partnership
    To accelerate 5G popularization, we are working with North American telecom company Verizon to launch the OnePlus 8 5G UW – a device that operates exclusively on the Verizon 5G Ultra-Wide band network, providing an even better experience for our US fans.

    We can’t wait for you to be able to get your hands on the OnePlus 8 Series. For our fans in Europe, our exclusive online Pop-up boxes are now available on oneplus.com. For those in the US, you’ll have a chance to grab our Launch Day bundle tomorrow. And for our Indian friends, the OnePlus 8 series will be available this summer.

    Specs made me go woow!
    Price made me go ooof

    The phones are beautiful as hell (especially that glacial green), but are they worth the price?

    Looking forward to seeing the Indian pricing!

    Congrats on the launch!

    Year by year one plus is increasing their phone prices. It way to costly than all the one plus launched till now. Looking at the market going on right now due to corona virus they should have launched it at little lower price.

    A very beautiful looking phone, Indeed.
    However, a very confusing price. Looking forward to how the community is going to receive the series, especially the Indian community
