It is this Tuesday at 5 p.m. that OnePlus has planned to present its new range of smartphones, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. As is often the case in recent weeks, the event will only take place on the Internet, with the conference broadcast live on YouTube.
DISCOVER THE ONEPLUS 8 WITH US
START OF PRESENTATION
- It’s 5 p.m. It’s time to find out what OnePlus has in store for us!
HERE IS THE ONEPLUS 8 PRO
- And we start with the OnePlus 8 Pro, the “most successful product designed by OnePlus”. It is both beautiful and pleasant to hold in your hand. So that you feel like you’re holding a piece of art.
- Three colors are announced, black, blue and green. And IP68 certification is there!
The 6.78 ″ OLED screen is well drilled with a 3.8 mm diameter punch. A screen that OnePlus is really proud of. QHD +, 120 Hz, 10-bit, HDR10 +, 1300 nits, color accuracy… On paper, everything is there.
THE BEST ONEPLUS CAMERA
The OnePlus 8 Pro is the first in its series to take advantage of 4 photo sensors with:
- a 48 MP sensor
- an ultra wide-angle of 48 MP
- a x3 telephoto
- a dedicated color sensor
The color calibration has been designed so that all the sensors transcribe the same colorimetry.
The photo part goes up in 4K to 60 frames per second with an HDR mode to work even against the light, and the most faithful sound capture possible.
For performance, we find in broad outline the same thing as on the OP8 Pro, namely:
- SoC Snapdragon 865
- Up to 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage
- USB 3.1
- WiFi 6
- “2.0” haptic motor
And for autonomy, it is a 4300 mAh battery with a charge (wired) of 30 We allowing to recharge 60% in 30 minutes.
Obviously, both smartphones are 5G compatible, both NSA and SA thanks to Qualcomm’s X55 modem, supporting not only sub-6 GHz waves, but also millimeter waves.
ONEPLUS BULLETS WIRELESS Z
In addition to the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, the brand announces the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z. We don’t know much about them except that 10 minutes of charging gives them 10 hours of use.
Their price is $49.95.
Here are the prices of the OnePlus 8:
- OnePlus 8, 8 + 128 GB: 699 dollars / 699 euros
- OnePlus 8, 12 + 256 GB: 799 dollars / 799 euros
- OnePlus 8 Pro 8 + 128 GB: 899 dollars / 899 euros
- OnePlus 8 Pro 12 + 256 GB: 999 dollars / 999 euros
Pre-orders begin now for sale on April 21.
FIND OUR TESTS
The conference is over, you can find the summary of the announcements in our presentation article, as well as the tests of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro directly on Frandroid.
The main innovation expected on its new OnePlus smartphones is the arrival of wireless charging. While the manufacturer has so far refused to adopt this technology, considered still too immature, he finally decided to integrate it into its new range. In addition, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro should both benefit from the new Snapdragon 865 chip.
PRICES THAT MAY INCREASE
Another unknown, the price of the devices. Indeed, OnePlus has accustomed us in its last years to gradually increase the price of its smartphones. The OnePlus 7T Pro was thus launched from 759 euros last October, while the OnePlus 7T was offered at 599 euros at launch. We logically expect a small price increase on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, especially since competitors, like Xiaomi on its Mi 10, have also increased their prices considerably.
Until the official presentation of the new OnePlus 8 range, you can find our complete file to learn all about the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
