OnePlus 8 overview, Younger sibling of 8 Pro

OnePlus 8 non Pro version

Last year OnePlus introduced two variants OP7 Pro and OP7, like many other manufacturers. This year, nothing changed too. OnePlus announced 8 Pro’s younger sibling with some cuts in spec sheet from 8 Pro. Let’s take a look at the features of OnePlus 8.


OnePlus 8 has a 6.55″ fluid AMOLED display with resolution of (2400 x 1080 px) with refresh rate of 90Hz and aspect ratio of (20:9). It also got rating of A+ from DisplayMate and supports HDR10. Unlike OnePlus 7 &7T’s notch design, now OP8 has a puch-hole display like its elder brother, that punch-hole holds a 16MP IMX471 sensor with f/2.45.

SoC & Memory

OP8 is also powered by the flagship of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip along with 5G connectivity and 8/12GB of LPDDR4X RAM not the new LPDDR5 one which the Pro version has. It has same two Storage options like 8 Pro 128/256GB of UFS 3.0. It runs on Oxygen OS 10 which is based on Android 10.

More Features:

  • Optical in-display fingerprint
  • WiFi 6
  • Bluetooth 5.1
  • Stereo Speakers
  • Optical in=display fingerprint scanner
  • Dual Nano Sim
  • New Vibration Haptic


OP8 only has three cameras on the back, company has dropped the Telephoto lens which is a bummer in 2020 at this price from OnePlus. Main camera is a 48MP with f/1.7 and sensor size is 1/2.0″ which is smaller than OP8 Pro, Ultra-wide is a 16MP f/2.2 sensor with 116 degree field of view and the third one is a dedicated macro 2MP f/2.4 sensor. It can shoot 4K 60fps and 1080p @ 240fps with HDR capability.


OnePlus 8 has a 4300mAh battery which is a bit smaller than 8 Pro’s 4510mAh but it shouldn’t hurt battery timing as OP8 has only a Full HD+ display. It only has wired Warp Charge 30T capability which can charge upto 1 to 50% in just 22 minutes.
