OnePlus launches the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, some smartphone companies aren’t slacking off. This is the case of OnePlus. The company just launched two new flagship devices OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. And compared to their predecessors of these two new flagship devices from OnePlus, the price seems to have hiked up in a way that might displease consumers.

OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro

These two devices come in a period where the economy of many countries around the globe is being shaken by the coronavirus pandemic, yet the price for the OnePlus 8 pro seems pretty high when compared to that of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Both devices are almost the same, except for the fact that the OnePlus 8 Pro has a little big larger screen resolution(6.55 Inches for the OnePlus 8 and 6.78 Inches for the OnePlus 8 Pro). And the OnePlus 8 Pro’s new screen comes with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Also, the devices have inherited the vertical camera alignment from the OnePlus 7 Pro. Behind the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro we have a tripple camera.

In terms of the colours, we have new colours. The Onyx Black, Glacial Green, and Interstellar Glow for the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro comes in Onyx Black, Glacial Green, and Ultramarine Blue.

5G Support

With the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 used on both devices, they have support for the 5G network speed.
