As OnePlus mobile phones have gradually moved up the price ladder, buyers have become less forgiving to many premium features that the company conveniently skips – including a proper IP rating and wireless charging. Both of these tender points will be addressed with OnePlus’s upcoming 8-series, according to India-based tipster Ishan Agarwal, who also detailed some of the key specifications in the lineup earlier this month.
Agarwal tweeted a pair of spec sheets for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro that give away new information about the two long-awaited phones. Apparently, only the Pro model gets the IP68 rating and supports 30W wireless and 3W reverse wireless charging. The Standard OnePlus 8 will be much closer to the current 7T. The higher phone will also use a 120Hz to 90Hz panel of 8, along with the newer LPDDR5 RAM standard. Both also start with 8 GB of RAM.
Exclusive: They are coming! Here is the complete specification list for # OnePlus8 & 8 Pro. Looks like # OnePlus8Pro will be a beast with 6.78 “120hz QHD + screen and 48 + 48 + 8 + 5MP camera setting. Has 30W wireless charging and IP68 rating as well. I’m so excited! # OnePlus8Series pic.twitter.com/j1AAo19q4J

Both phones will come with the same 30-watt Warp Charge brick that came with the 2019 models and will use the older UFS 3.0 memory ship. The newer 3.1 standard offers improved writing speeds. In addition, the spec sheet suggests four rear cameras for the Pro, including two with a 48MP sensor. The non-Pro unit gets three rear cameras. Both phones will reportedly see a jump of nearly 500 mAh in battery capacity compared to their respective predecessors. They will be delivered in a new green shade, which separately leaked earlier today. Popular Doctor Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) released an alleged press release of OnePlus 8 Pro in a refreshing green hue. Other than the color, there is nothing new in this picture – McFly also leaked similar representations of the Pro back in October. They look identical, with the exception of the new OnePlus brand.
OnePlus was also expected to launch a Lite model in 2020, but some previous reports indicate that the phone is delayed. Last time we heard about the availability of the OnePlus 8 series, reports suggested that the Chinese company could reveal them around mid-April.
Some more details about OnePlus 8 Pro have leaked. PriceBaba (working with leaker Ishan Agarwal) revealed that the phone’s camera system will have two 48MP main sensors, one of which uses the Sony IMX689 (f / 1.78) sensor found on the Oppo Find X2 Pro, while the other uses the same Sony IMX586 which OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro main cameras. The later 48MP camera will act as the ultra-wide lens, with a 120-degree FOV and an f / 2.2 aperture.
8MP telephoto lenses will reportedly offer 3x optical zoom (with 30x digital zoom, which I can hardly resemble a photo), and the 5MP sensor only works as a color filter. OnePlus is reportedly also working on a brand new night portrait mode, ‘3-HDR’ video and improved image stabilization.
Ultramarine blue variant
WinFuture gives us a glimpse of another new OnePlus 8 Pro color variant called “Ultramarine Blue.” It is a deep, saturated shade of blue that is quite similar to the “really blue” original Google Pixel. If the leak proves to be correct, OnePlus will certainly offer a wide selection of attractive colors this time.
More information about confirmation and video recording
WinFuture confirms the previously leaked hardware specifications with permission from Ishan Agarwal. The German outlet further adds that both OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro should support 4K 60fps filming, as well as a 720p 480fps super slow-motion mode. Both handsets also have NFC and dual-nano SIM support on board.
