The OnePlus 8 Pro will have a quad-camera setup at the rear, featuring the same Sony IMX689 primary sensor with an f/1.78 aperture lens as OPPO’s Find X2 Pro. Joining the 48MP primary sensor will be a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens boasting a 120-degree field-of-view. The 8MP telephoto lens will offer 3x optical zoom, along with 30x digital zoom. Additionally, the phone will also feature a 5MP “color filter.” Along with the upgraded camera hardware, Agarwal claims the upcoming flagship will come with a new night portrait mode, ‘3-HDR’ video, cinematic effects, and improved OIS.


The leaked renders shared by WinFuture give us a clear look at the stunning “Interstellar Glow” color variant of the OnePlus 8. For consumers who like to keep things understated, the standard OnePlus 8 will also be offered in “Onyx Black” and “Glacial Green.”

These are difficult times for us all, and I’ve been pained to see how the pandemic has unfolded and already hurt so many, both directly and indirectly (1/4)
