OnePlus 8 Pro Overview
OnePlus 8 Pro carries the design language of older OnePlus’s phone. It’s simple and elegant. The rear panel is made of glass with satin finish and it’s protected by Gorilla Glass 5. There’s quad-camera setup on the rear and on the front, there’s a hole-punch and an under-display optical fingerprint sensor.
The glass back is curved along the edges where it meets the body-colored aluminum frame. OnePlus 8 Pro looks really premium to be fair.
OnePlus has upgraded the display to a 120Hz refresh rate compared to 90Hz on the OnePlus 7T Pro. The 6.78 inches display is a Fluid AMOLED panel with a screen resolution of 1440 x 3168. And, it is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 as well.
The bezels are quite thin so it should be great for media content. On top of that, it supports HDR10+ so you can easily watch HDR content on the OnePlus 8 Pro too. Plus, it supports 120Hz at full resolution unlike the S20 series.
OnePlus has been pushing Fast and Smooth tagline for their phones. And, the hardware certainly allows that with the Snapdragon 865 chipset. It’s a 7nm chipset with Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 585 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 585 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 585) chipset and Adreno 650 GPU. Furthermore, it also supports 5G ready.
Then it comes with 128GB/256GB UFS 3.0 storage and 8GB/12GB RAM.
OnePlus 8 Pro is one of the fastest phones out there. Though it is not rocking the latest 865+ chipset, there’s not much difference among the Snapdragon 865 and the 865+.
This is where OnePlus used to lack behind other flagships and that’s why they have tried to reduce the deficit. OnePlus 8 Pro rocks a 48MP main camera with omnidirectional PDAF, Laser AF, and OIS.
Then it has an 8MP telephoto lens that enables up to 3X optical zoom, a 48MP ultrawide angle camera with 116-degree FOV, and a controversial 5MP color filter camera.
The main sensor is the Sony IMX 689 sensor which was specifically designed for Oppo. It is the third-largest image sensor behind the ones used on the Samsung S20 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro. Then the 48MP ultrawide angle camera is the Sony IMX 586 sensor which was the main camera on the OnePlus 7T/7T Pro. And at last, there’s a 5MP color filter sensor.
On the front, it has a 16MP sensor for selfies.
Underneath, OnePlus 8 Pro uses 4510 mAh battery which should last for more than a day even with a 120Hz refresh rate. Then, to juice up its battery it comes with 30W Fast Charging which claims 50% charge in 23 min. It also includes a very fast 30W wireless charging.
Then, it runs on Oxygen OS 10 on top of Android 10. It should be getting the Oxygen Os 11 update very soon.
OnePlus 8 Pro Price in Nepal and Availability
OnePlus 8 Pro price in Nepal is Rs. 1,10,000 (8/128GB) and Rs. 1,25,000 (12/256GB).
Its price starts at USD 899 and goes up to USD 999. So, if we convert the prices directly from USD to NPR. There’s about NPR 1900 and NPR 5000 difference in the US and Nepal prices. I think it’s fine given the current situation. Yeah, it’s cheaper in India and there’s a reason for that which we will not delve into right now.

OnePlus 8 Pro is a top-notch flagship with everything being as good as it can be. The camera has improved and it manages a similar result as the S20+ which has helped it rank 10th on DXOMARK. There are no more compromises on these new devices. It even has an IP68 rating finally.
Furthermore, it’s better than S20+ in terms of performance as well. And, that’s because you get the Exynos variant of S20 series in Nepal. So, it makes OnePlus 8 Pro the best Android flagship in Nepal. Doesn’t it?
