If I am being honest, I never thought to look at or check out the OnePlus phone brands before now. But after seeing this phone, among others, I am now a big fan of their amazing work. Their latest phone (which blew my mind) is the OnePlus 8T, which is not available here in Nigeria yet, but today I want to look into the OnePlus 8 Pro.
The OnePlus 8 Pro alongside its brother, the OnePlus 8 were unveiled on 14 April, 2020 and became available for purchase on 29 April, 2020. This phone has so many exciting and impressive features that I just had to talk about it. It’s just such a well rounded phone that has a little bit of everything at it’s best.
- Compatible Networks: 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G
- Dimensions: 165.3 mm × 74.4 mm × 8.5 mm
Large and slick as you like, the OnePlus 8 Pro is large enough for your favourite activities and slick/thin for a comfortable and satisfying feel.
- Mass: 199g
- Operating system: OxygenOS 11 (based on Android 11)
- System on chip: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
Another reason why I love the phone so much, is because of its gaming capabilities. This phone right here is possibly one of the best phones to use for gaming. The speed and amazing performance of that snapdragon will give you the best experience all round.
- CPU:Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 585 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 585 & 4×1.80 GHz Kryo 585)
- GPU:Qualcomm Adreno 650
When you have these kind of processors (especially the Adreno 650) you know you are all set. With graphics that are as clear as they get and as fast in processing as any other, the OnePlus 8 Pro makes sure you get nothing but the best. And this is not even the half of it.
- Memory: 8 or 12 GB LPDDR5
- Storage: 128 or 256 GB UFS 3.0
- Battery: 4,510mAh
- Warp charge 30 wireless.
The battery if the OnePlus 8 Pro is exceptional, with the new warp technology that is being tediously studied and enhanced by the OnePlus company. The charging is so fast it gets you to 50% in twenty minutes and a full charge in just under an hour. Battery charging speed is something that OnePlus is trying to take to the next level, and I think they’re doing an amazing job so far.
- Data Inputs: Fingerprint scanner (optical)
- Display: 6.78″ QHD+ display, 3168 × 1440 1440p, fully AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, with 120 hz refresh rate, 1B colors.
Looking at this display of the OnePlus 8 Pro gets me in so much anxiety and excitement. In case you missed it, it has 120 hz refresh rate! Yes, 120 hz! It is one of the few high end phones to possess this feature. It also has 1 billion vibrant and beautiful display colors. Now, that’s what I like to call top class display.
Gaming will be such a rush on this phone. I personally need to see how top games play on this crazy phone.
- Rear camera:48 MP, f/1.75, 25mm, 1/1.43″, 1.12 µm (wide) + 48 MP, f/2.2, 14 mm, 1/2″, 0.8µm (ultrawide) + 8 MP, f/2.44, 1.0 µm (telephoto) + 5 MP, f/2.4 (depth), 3x optical zoom, omnidirectional PDAF, Laser AF
- OIS, gyro-EIS, dual-LED flash, Auto HDR,
4K@30/60 fps, 1080p@30/60/240 fps, 720p@480 fps
- Front camera:16 MP, f/2.45, 1/3″, 1.0 µm
1080p@30 fps, Auto-HDR, gyro-EIS
I am sure you remember when I said “a well rounded phone”? I meant it in every sense. This camera right here is a thing to behold. With clear, vivid, bright and beautiful pictures that only few high-end phone’s can compete with. OnePlus did their homework on these cameras.
- Sound:Dolby Atmos Dual stereo speakers with active noise cancellation
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6
- A2DP, LE, aptX HD
The Wi-Fi 6 implemented in the OnePlus 8 Pro is next gen level. With up to 270%* faster data transfer speeds than previous generations, streaming games and watching shows has never been more exciting and smoother. This simply means no loading or waiting time between viewing.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is a next level phone that puts you ahead and braces you for whatever activity you want to take part in. By the current exchange rate, it should cost you N440,000 and can be found on online platforms for purchase.
