OnePlus 8 Pro Announced: A Phone Truly Worthy of the “Pro” Title!

OnePlus finally revealed the OnePlus 8 series after a long battle with prolonged launch dates. The duo – OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro were launched just yesterday in an online event alongside the company’s OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless dock and Bullets Wireless Z earphones. Unlike earlier, it will certainly take a long time for these devices to make it all the way to Nepal.

We don’t have in-depth details on the launch scenarios but what we do have is a full list of confirmed specifications. This particular article is centered around the OnePlus 8 Pro. The OnePlus 8, is an ideal phone in itself. So, what makes the “Pro” variant any special? Well, let’s find out in this quick overview.

OnePlus 8 Pro Overview

The OnePlus 8 Pro, as the name implies is yet another OnePlus 8 but with a few razzle-dazzles. Since it’s part of the same family, most attributes are bound to be similar. The design is one such borrowed aspect that the OnePlus 8 Pro flaunts. Other than the augmentation of a flash module and extra sensor in the rear, there’s no differentiation in the external framework.

Speaking of borrowed, the display attribute is a lot similar to its brother except for three modifications: size, resolution and refresh rate. Extending the size to 6.78”, resolutions to QHD+ and refresh rate to 120Hz, OnePlus 8 Pro is just phenomenal.

I don’t think I have to mention this but the OnePlus 8 Pro still has the best internals in the business. Octa-Core Snapdragon 865 paired with LPDDR5 8/12GB internal setup are the basic standards for OnePlus 8 Pro. Moreover, there a huge 128/256GB internal embedded inside that’s based upon UFS 3.0. As a cherry on top, OnePlus has Oxygen OS 10.0; which is still as smooth as ever.
