UPDATE: Ishan Agarwal has paired up with PriceBaba to share the full OnePlus 8 Pro camera specifications. The updated story continues below:


The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro may look quite similar to the OnePlus 7T Pro on the outside, but new information published by Ishan Agarwal shows the company is still planning a wide range of internal upgrades for the smartphones.

The OnePlus 8 Pro chipset, storage, and 5G

The highlight of OnePlus’ most expensive flagship model is undoubtedly the high-end Snapdragon 865 chipset. It is used inside the Galaxy S20 Ultra and LG V60 ThinQ, among other devices, and should offer an extremely impressive level of performance.

As standard the OnePlus 8 Pro reportedly ships with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. MicroSD cards won’t be supported, unfortunately, but a pricier variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is reportedly in the works too.

This is all combined with the Snapdragon X55 modem, which will guarantee 5G network support as standard and, in turn, ensure all users can make the most of their flagship smartphone in areas such as cloud gaming and streaming.

The OnePlus 8 Pro display, battery, and charging tech

Sitting alongside the internal hardware looks set to be an amazing display. OnePlus introduced 120Hz display technology back in January and Ishan Agarwal today says it will indeed be present on the OnePlus 8 Pro.

Specifically, the flagship will arrive equipped with a 6.78-inch Fluid AMOLED display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate and a QHD+ (3120 x 1440p) resolution. Minimal bezels, curved edges, and a punch-hole in the top-left corner for the 16-megapixel selfie camera are also expected.

Keeping the lights on is going to be a 4,510mAh battery. It isn’t quite as big as the 5,000mAh cells found inside recent Samsung and LG flagships, but it should certainly produce some decent battery life results.

If you ever run out of juice, it shouldn’t take you that long to recharge the OnePlus 8 Pro because it reportedly supports 30W Warp Charge 30T fast charging and, for the first time ever, 30W wireless charging with 3W reverse wireless charging.

Another feature that has never been offered on a OnePlus phone is an official IP water and dust resistance rating, something that changes with the OnePlus 8 Pro because it apparently boasts an IP68 water and dust resistance rating.

The OnePlus 8 Pro camera system

The OnePlus 8 Pro reportedly uses a 48-megapixel main camera that offers an f/1.78 aperture. The sensor is made by Sony (IMX689) and was most recently used on the premium Oppo Find X2 Pro, which means there should be a noticeable improvement over the OnePlus 7T Pro.

Speaking on the previous-gen model, Agarwal claims OnePlus is reusing its 48-megapixel main camera (Sony IMX586) as the ultra-wide-angle shooter on the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro. It offers an f/2.2 aperture and supports a 120-degree field-of-view.

There is also an 8-megapixel telephoto lens (f/2.44) that, as expected, supports 3x optical zoom. To better compete with rival smartphones, though, OnePlus is also introducing support for up to 30x digital zoom. 

All of this will be combined with a 5-megapixel 'color filter' camera and improved camera features including an all-new Night Portrait Mode, cinematic effects, improved OIS and EIS, and a new feature called '3-HDR' video.

The standard OnePlus 8

Although physically similar to the Pro-branded model, the regular OnePlus 8 is quite a bit different. For example, the display has been downsized to 6.55-inches and now supports a 90Hz refresh rate alongside a Full-HD+ (2400 x 1080p) resolution.

Some pretty significant changes have also been made in the camera department. The depth sensor is now gone and has been replaced with what could be a 2-megapixel macro camera, for example, and the telephoto is nowhere to be seen.

The ultra-wide-angle shooter has also been downgraded to a 16-megapixel sensor.

Other changes include a smaller 4,300mAh battery, no wireless or reverse wireless charging support, no official IP water and dust resistance rating, and slower LPDDR4X RAM instead of LPDDR5 chips.
