OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro

Last year turned out to be very busy for OnePlus; it managed to officially enter

American market. Today, the manufacturer has officially announced OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, which can definitely make big strides in the market. First review of new products more…

Design and display

Last year's OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro were very differentapart: OnePlus 7 had a jagged design, while the larger OnePlus 7 Pro used a pop-up selfie camera, which helped it achieve an almost frameless design. This strategy has been confirmed by the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro, but the OnePlus 8 series represents a bold new direction ... because the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro use an identical design with offset holes. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro with the same thin bezels, frosted glass, curved edges of the screen and relatively lightweight cases look just as stylish.

OnePlus 8 5G

In terms of displays, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8Pro will be very different. The smaller OnePlus 8 features a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED HDR10+ display with FHD+ resolution of 1080×215;2400 pixels, 20:9 aspect ratio and the same 90Hz refresh rate that debuted with the OnePlus 7 Pro last year. There is a new Always On option that will allow you to view pending notifications and the time. Until now, OnePlus phones only had an Ambient Mode feature that briefly illuminated the display when there were incoming notifications.

OnePlus 8 Pro 5G

The top version of OnePlus 8 Pro usesThe 6.78-inch Fluid AMOLED display, which is also HDR10 + compatible, but uses a denser resolution of QHD + 1440 by 3168 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19.8: 9. More importantly, OnePlus 8 Pro also has a display refresh rate of 120 Hz, which brings it closer to the latest version of the Galaxy S20. Recall that the higher the refresh rate, the greater the impact on the battery, which is confirmed by the battery life of the Galaxy S20 when used at 120 Hz, but there is hope that the OnePlus 8 Pro battery will not suffer from the use of the new frequency update mode.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are available in colors: glacial green, black onyx and ultramarine blue.
