The OnePlus 8 is the hero of the pair, coming with four cameras. There’s a standard zoom, a super-wide angle, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera and a 5-megapixel “color filter” camera, which seems to allow you to take images with infrared-style effects. It’s one camera more than last year’s range, which lacked the color filter but were otherwise functionally similar. The front-facing camera is found in a cut-out in the display, rather than in a slide-out unit housed in the top edge. (Some may see this as a step backward.) Its 16-megapixel resolution remains unchanged however.
Both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro pack the latest Qualcomm 865 chips, both are available with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Both support fast charging. The 8 Pro adds fast wireless charging to the mix and it’s the first OnePlus phone to come with an IP68 rating, meaning it’s better protected against water and dust.
