The OnePlus 8 Series is finally here.

OnePlus today introduced the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, its newest flagship smartphones. The OnePlus 8 Pro features a 6.78-inch 3168×1440 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The 8 Pro also includes an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. That’s notable because while past OnePlus phones may have been able to stand up to splashes, the 8 Pro is the first OnePlus phone with an official IP rating to stand up to water.

Another first for the OnePlus 8 Pro is wireless charging support. The 8 Pro is the first OnePlus phone to include wireless charging, and its Warp Charge 30 Wireless promises up to 30W of wireless charging speeds. It also supports reverse wireless charging, meaning you can use the 8 Pro to wirelessly charge other devices.

Around on the back of the OnePlus 8 Pro is a quad camera array. The main cam is a 48MP snapper with a Sony IMX689 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, and optical image stabilization. There’s also a 48MP ultra wide cam that uses a Sony IMX586 sensor and f/2.2 aperture as well as a an 8MP 3x telephoto cam and a 5MP color filter camera.

Inside, the OnePlus 8 Pro has the kind of specs that you’d expect from a flagship phone in 2020. It’s packing a Snapdragon 865 processor, up to 12GB of fast LPDDR5 RAM, and 5G support. There’s up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage included, too, along with Wi-Fi 6 support and dual stereo speakers.

The battery powering the OnePlus 8 Pro is a 4510mAh pack. As mentioned before, the 8 Pro includes wireless charging support, but there’s also Warp Charge 30T wired fast charging available that can get you from 0 to 60% in half an hour of charging.

Also announced today is the OnePlus 8. This is meant to be the more compact flagship, offering a 6.55-inch 2400×1080 AMOLED display that OnePlus says has slimmer bezels to help it fit better in your hand. This display also includes a 90Hz refresh rate and an in-display fingerprint reader.

Another difference between the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are the rear cameras. The regular OnePlus 8 features three rear cams, including a 48MP main camera with Sony IMX586 sensor with OIS. There’s a 16MP ultra wide camera with 116-degree field of view, too, as well as a 2MP macro cam for close-up photos.

When it comes to internals, the OnePlus 8 is packing the same Snapdragon 865 as the Pro model as well as support for up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. There’s Wi-Fi 6 and stereo speakers just like the 8 Pro, too.

The battery on the OnePlus 8 is a bit smaller than the 8 Pro’s, coming in at 4300mAh. You get fast Warp Charge 30T charging here, but there’s no wireless charging support like on the 8 Pro. The OnePlus 8 is lacking the official IP rating of its Pro sibling as well.

    Gimmie gimmie! Ready to give up my 7 pro for the 8 Pro!

    • leslie cruz

      At 999.00 doesn’t make a lot of sense

      • djurlegit

        actually it does. The 8 Pro is not just a major upgrade such as, bigger display, narrower for one hand grip, added wireless charging, can be dunk in water with that piece of mind, and of course the usual spec bumps. It is also a true flagship and phones like that can cost around 1200+ before tax. The 8 Pro doesn’t just have wireless charging, it has one of the fastest. Compared to the 7 Pro, the 8 Pro is a step to the next level in every category. Gow are the days that you worry water might kinda have got into the popup camera gap, gone are the days wireless charging wasn’t possible when you came home drunk in the dark, gone are rhe days camera quality were questionable, and with the added 120hz, gaming and video will look even better than before. Especially with the feature to turn a 24 or 30FPS video to 60 FPS. No phones can do that, not even the Oneplus 7 Pro.

        Free wireless charging cradle and wireless buds makes sense to me

  • George Salcedo

    Will stick with the V60 for now, don’t think pricing on this device will be as low as previous models.

  • Christian Flores

    So no One plus 8 pro for TMobile?

    • Waboo

      Yeah, bad decision not to carry both. Not surprised.

  • No One plus 8 pro for Tmobile? Surprised it also does not have mmwave band support

  • Waboo

    Hi Alex, You might not have correct pricing for the One Plus 8. Other sites show $699 and $799. You’re $100 high.

  • jralphroman

    8 pro won’t be sold at T-Mobile but could be picked up at OnePlus website along with free accessories, earbuds and wireless charger.

    • why not? They did carry the Oneplus 7t Pro Mclaren – doesnt make sense…

    • the martian ambassador

      It looks like the 8 Pro on the OnePlus site supports band 71, so it should work well on T-Mobile’s network. You have to read the fine print on non-T-Mobile branded phones because many unlocked devices do not have that band activated.

  • TenEightyPeePee

    Remember when OnePlus came in and offered flagship specs for half the price? Yeah… that is not them anymore…

    • Iphart

      $800/900 for this. Joke.
      Samsung galaxy S20 5G has already dropped to $799 unlocked, and still nobody wants it.

      • Bklynman

        Because everyone is sick of new phones coming out every 6 months!! All phones makers should go back to every 2 yrs!! Have the tech really change that much in 6 months?

    • leslie cruz

      they got greedy after everyone saying was cheap and good

      • none

        They’re still 40% less expensive than an equivalent Samsung or iPhone…

    • Mike

      To keep up with being a top tier phone parts are driving the price up. Find a phone with the same specs as the One 8 for cheaper from a reliable phone manufacturer.

  • Empty camera promises – fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a thrid time? No thanks.
