The new One Plus 8 series has officially released the India pricing. The One Plus 8 will be sold for a starting price of Rs 41,999, while the more premium One Plus 8 Pro will be available at a starting price of Rs 54,999. The new One Plus 8 is the spiritual successor to the One Plus 7T. It is a huge update, and the company has made some difficult decisions to keep the price lower than the Pro variant.
The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 855+ processor, which is a slightly improved version of the Snapdragon 855 and get up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. In the camera, a triple camera setup in a horizontal arrangement in a round module. The primary camera includes a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with OIS. The second camera is a 12-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel sensor. The front camera includes a 16-megapixel sensor. The camera also brings in a macro mode.
The new One Plus 8 comes with the new and more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. One Plus is offering a high-end 12GB RAM this time apart from the 8GB RAM version. Notably, this will be the LPDDR4X memory, unlike the LPDDR5 RAM being offered on the Pro variant, which doesn’t necessarily make it slow by any means. Storage options include 128GB and 256GB UFS 3.0 dual-lane.
Probably the most important upgrade is the battery. While the One Plus 7T had a 3,800mAh battery, the One Plus 8 offers a 4,300mAh battery. According to the company, the large battery provides 13% more battery capacity compared to the 7T. Of course, there is Warp Charge 30T, which is claimed to charge from 1% to 50% in 22 minutes. There is sadly no wireless charging like the One Plus 8 Pro.
Other important features including an in-display fingerprint scanner, face unlock, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support, USB-C 3.1, NFC, and so on. The handset will be offered in three colors- Onyx Black, Interstellar, Glow, and Glacial Green.
