OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8 Pro globally on 14 April, with sales starting from 29 April around the world. And now, after 4 months, it’s finally up for pre-orders in Nepal via Oliz Store with sales starting as of 11 August 2020. Here’s a brief overview of the device followed by the price in Nepal.
The OnePlus 8 Pro brings the goodness of high refresh rate screen in the form of a 6.78-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display, the largest on any OnePlus device yet, and also the first to come with 120Hz refresh rate. The touch sampling rate of the device maxes out to 240Hz to decrease input lag.
The display, calibrated at the factory level, achieves a record-breaking color accuracy. Besides, it’s a 10-bit panel with HDR 10+ support as well as an HDR Boost feature to take the previous 8-bit content and further enhance it. The device also has MEMC converting 24fps videos to 120fps, which can be a ‘polarizing’ feature, however, OnePlus has stated the software level optimization looks after whether or not the interface runs smoothly at 120fps with no hiccups.
At the top, the device comes with a punch-hole cutout replacing the pop-up mechanism from the predecessor to house the selfie snapper. And it comes with an official IP68 rating, the first of its kind on an OnePlus device.
An additional new feature is the wireless charging tech, which OnePlus said was not ready — and looks like, it finally is. Warp Charge 30 Wireless, as the company calls, can charge the device at up to 30W and can juice up the battery from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. Surprisingly, there’s support for reverse wireless charging as well.
Wired charging, though, is still tad bit faster. The 30W Warp Charge 30T fills up 50% of the battery in 23 minutes. Nonetheless, a larger 4,510mAh battery on the 8 Pro (from 4,000mAh on the 7 Pro), will make sure that you won’t have to charge the device until bedtime, but even if you have to, the wireless charging is as fast as the non-T Warp Charge 30.
As for the optics, the OnePlus 8 Pro gets two 48MP sensors as well as a telephoto and an assistant module. The first primary camera uses a bigger 1/14″ Sony IMX689 sensor with 1.12µm native pixel size and 2.24µm binned pixel size. Also, the omnidirectional autofocus support on all pixels should provide more clarity to pictures.
It can shoot 4K videos at 60fps by making use of the new Single Shot 3-HDR feature that lets you capture three exposures at once, dramatically enhancing the dynamic range. The camera uses varying of Optical and Electronic Image Stabilization.
The second 48MP camera has a 120-degree ultrawide lens and also acts as a macro camera capable of taking snaps at 3cm distance.
At the third is an 8MP telephoto shooter with 1.0µm pixels, f/2.44 aperture as well as OIS. The fourth module is an all-new Color Filter camera, which can be helpful while rendering various color effects.
Under the helm is a Snapdragon 865 chipset accompanied by LPDDR5 RAM — 30% faster as well as 20% more energy efficient than the RAM on the previous version. It still uses the UFS 3.0 storage.
The phone supports sub-6GHz 5G connectivity, whilst there’s WiFi 6 as well that supports speed up to 9.6Gbps — faster than the 5G modem with 7.5Gbps on a mmWave connection.
