The company has already confirmed that both phones will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC, and there will be two memory and storage versions, 8GB and 12GB of LPDDR4X for OnePlus 8 and 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM for OnePlus 8 Pro, as well as either 128GB and or 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
Both phones will obviously share some specifications, including a similar design with center placed rear camera system and a front upper-right punch-hole selfie camera. Both will also feature a glass back and a glass front with an aluminum frame, but only the Pro version appears to be IP68 dust/water-resistant.
Both will also have the same connectivity as these share the same SoC, including 5G, 802.11ax WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and USB Type-C port. Both also have the same in-display fingerprint scanner and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.
Premium specifications reserved for the OnePlus 8 Pro
As expected, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be much more feature-packed compared to the standard OnePlus 8, including a better screen, IP68 resistance, better camera system, and a larger battery, but it will all come down to the price.
The OnePlus 8 Pro will end up slightly larger and heavier than the standard OnePlus 8, measuring at 165.3x74.4x8.5mm and weighing in at 199g. This is not a surprise since it is built around a larger 6.78-inch Fluid AMOLED screen with 3168x1440 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This leaves it with 513ppi of pixel density, which is quite impressive.
The quad-camera setup on the rear of the phone will be using the main 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 main sensor, sitting behind an f/1.78 lens with OIS and EIS. It also gets a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 ultrawide sensor behind an f/2.2 lens with 120-degree FoV, as well as an 8-megapixel telephoto (f/2.4, 3x optical, OIS), and 5MP color filter sensor(f/2.4 lens). It also has PDAF, laser AF, and dual-LED flesh.
The front camera is a 16-megapixel one with the Sony IMX471 sensor and f/2.4 lens with fixed focus and EIS.
As noted, the OnePlus 8 Pro will be heavier and thicker, mostly due to the larger battery as this one comes with 4,510 mAh with 30W Warp charger and 30W wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging.
The standard OnePlus 8 is slightly smaller at 160.2x72.9x8.0mm and weighs 180g. It will use a 6.55-inch 2400x1080 resolution Fluid AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, leaving it with 402ppi of pixel density.
It also comes with the triple rear camera setup, with 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 (F/1.75, OIS, EIS), 16-megapixel ultrawide (F/2.2, 116-degree FOV), and 2-megapixel macro sensor (F/2.4, 1.75μm pixel size), as well as PDAF and dual-LED flash.
The front camera is the same 16-megapixel one with Sony IMX471 (F/2.0, fixed focus, EIS).
The standard OnePlus 8 also gets a weaker 4,300mAh battery, has the same 30W wired charging, but lacks wireless charging, at least according to the leaked specification sheet.
Price will be high but you get a lot
The premium OnePlus 8 Pro should be starting at €930 for the 8GB/128GB and go up to €1,020 for the 12GB/256GB version, which is not half bad considering how much Xiaomi is asking for its Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro.
The standard OnePlus 8 will start at €729 for the 8GB/128GB version and go up to €835 for the 12GB/256GB version, which is a pretty good deal.
Hopefully, OnePlus will be left with a few new things to show at its launch event on April 14th but so far, details are leaking on all fronts.
Roland Quandt from Winfuture.de leaked the specifications and pictures and you can find all the specs over there.
