OnePlus has finally announced the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro flagship smartphones after series of leaks circulating the internet prior to its launch.

The OnePlus 8 Pro, finally, has two features most fans are asking for – IP68 water resistance and wireless charging. It is powered by the flagship Snapdragon 865 with 8 or 12GB RAM. Another new to this phone is the 48MP Sony IMX689 main camera at the rear backed up by three other cameras – another 48MP ultrawide, 8MP telephoto and a 5MP depth sensor. It also has the biggest screen on a OnePlus phone – 6.78-inches with 120Hz refresh rate. There is a 4,510 mAh battery with 30W wired and wireless charging support. Lastly it runs on Android 10.

The OnePlus 8 is cheaper option among the two. This one does not have proper IP rating for water resistance but OnePlus said it is still water and dust resistant. It also does not support wireless charging. We have a slightly smaller display here at 6.55-inches but it has 90Hz refresh rate. Then there are only three cameras at the back – a 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor, a 16MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera. The 4,300 mAh battery still supports 30W wired charging and it runs Android 10.
