The new OnePlus 8 Pro has been unveiled, it is one of the fastest Android phones on the market – starting at a respectable £799


The OnePlus 8 Pro is available in three striking colour variants: Ultramarine blue, glacial green and oynx black.

The size of this phone may put some people off, it has a 6.78-inch screen and only a small amount of people will be able to use it one handed. However, this is not a problem for people who prefer bigger phones.

For the first time, OnePlus phones come with an official water resistance rating. The OnepPlus 8 Pro is backed by an IP68 rating.


The OnePlus 8 Pro packs a brilliant 6.78-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, giving you a smooth and effortless scrolling experience. A 10-bit colour display features 64 times more colours than previous versions, this means it can deliver ultra-high colour accuracy for a true-to-life viewing experience. HDR boosts shadow and highlight details while gaming or watching videos.

The display is bright even in sunlight, it reaches 1300 nits. This means you should have no trouble in seeing onscreen content. The addition of the polarised display helps to reduce glare and reflections. The display has been rated an A+ from DisplayMate and an SGS Eye Care Display Certification.

5G capability

The OnePlus 8 Pro is shipped 5G ready. It also has the ability to switch between 5G and non-5G networks to help extend battery life.

Fast Charging

The device can be charged with Warp Charge 30 Wireless or Warp Charge 30T. Both of these technologies ensure your phone charges fast enough you wont be waiting around.

Warp Charge 30 Wireless can charge from 1% to 50% in half an hour. The OnePlus 8 Pro can also share its charge with reverse wireless charging. However you will need to buy the OnePlus wireless charging pad for this to work, normal Qi chargers will charge this device much slower.
