OnePlus has officially announced its latest flagship smartphones: OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
Looking at the spec sheet, the OnePlus 8 Pro is clearly the more premium phone, offering a 120Hz display and a telephoto camera. But the standard OnePlus 8 is cheaper and still brings powerhouse specs like 5G, a 90Hz display, and a top-of-the-line processor. If you’re interested in buying one of these devices when they go on sale in April (outside nepal), here’s everything you need to know.

Like the Samsung S20 lineup, the OnePlus 8 Pro is packed with specs, but the OnePlus 8 may be the best option for your budget and size. The primary difference between the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro is the display size and refresh rate and camera specs.
The OnePlus 8 has a 90hz refresh rate and a smaller frame with a 6.55″ display measured diagonally. The triple camera system lacks a few of the specs in the OnePlus 8 Pro. For instance, the OnePlus 8 Pro main rear camera has a 48MP Sony IMX689 sensor and a pixel size of 1.12 μm/48M; 2.24 μm [4 in 1] /12M. The OnePlus 8 has a Sony IMX586 sensor and pixel size of 0.8 μm. The OnePlus 8 Pro telephoto camera is 8 megapixels compared of 2 for the OnePlus 8. The ultra wide angle camera on OnePlus Pro 8 has 48 megapixels compared to 8 megapixels on the OnePlus 8.
You do notice that the OnePlus Pro 8 has sharper photos then its sibling due to the better camera specs, but the drop-off is more subtle than jarring. OnePlus 8 Pro does have a dazzling display, but the OnePlus 8 display is also strong.
WHAT COLOR AND STORAGE SIZES ARE AVAILABLE?
The OnePlus 8 will be available in glacial green, interstellar glow, and a Verizon-exclusive polar silver, while the OnePlus 8 Pro will come in glacial green, onyx black, and ultramarine blue. You can get either phone with 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage or 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage. There is no difference in price per color, but there is for more storage and RAM.
