Camera/Optics

OnePlus 8

OnePlus 8 Series - Detailed Specification Overview, and Everything you need to know. 22

OnePlus 8 has a Triple Camera Setup
48 MP, f/1.8(Wide Lens) OIS, PDAF+CAF {Sony IMX586}
16 MP, f/2.2(Ultrawide Lens)
2 MP, f/2.4(Macro Lens)

OnePlus 8 has a well-balanced Camera setup, with all the sensors which are mostly used in day to day usage, But if we compare it with the One Plus 7T then it is kind of a downgrade as One Plus 7T has the same 48MP sensor and the same 16MP ultrawide lens but has a much needed 12MP telephoto lens if we compare the Main and ultrawide shots then the difference is there between the 7T and 8, but it is not that huge, Overall the One Plus 7T has a much better camera setup

Video Recording options include 2160P @30/60FPS, 1080P @30/60/240FPS
For Selfies, we have a 16MP{Sony IMX471} selfie camera

OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus 8 Series - Detailed Specification Overview, and Everything you need to know. 23

8 Pro has a Quad Camera Setup, {The First Quad Camera Setup from One Plus}
48 MP, f/1.8 (Wide Lens) OIS, PDAF+CAF {Sony IMX689}
8 MP, f/2.4(Telephoto Lens) OIS, 3x optical zoom
48 MP, f/2.2 (Ultrawide Lens){Sony IMX 586}
5 MP, f/2.4, (Color Filter Sensor)

8 Pro also has a great camera setup, the main sensor can easily compete with the likes of iPhone 11 pro and Galaxy S20 ultra, the Ultrawide Shots are also amazing, can easily be the best ultrawide shots, also the telephoto shots are good, but it would have been better if it had more pixels, still, the telephoto shots are great, even at 30X zoom the shots are usable, but one thing I am not able to understand is the 5MP color filter sensor, it would be better if it is a Macro sensor, that would be much better, but we will look into the Color Filter sensor in more detail in the full review.

Video Recording options include 2160P @30/60FPS, 1080P @30/60/240FPS
For Selfies, we have a 16MP{Sony IMX471} selfie camera

Conclusion

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus is no longer the Flagship killer it has come into the flagship territory, and the price jump from OnePlus 7T to 8 is also something to look at, the One Plus 7T for the 8 GB Model Was priced somewhere around 36000INR, and the 8 is starting at around 50000INR, well the price increase is something inevitable, but it should not be something like it(~14000INR), if we look at the Performance, there is a better processor, but the same LPDDR4X RAM, same UFS3.0 Storage, the Same Sony IMX586 Sensor, better audio, increased Battery Capacity and 5G Support. Also, the One Plus 7T’s Camera Setup is still better than the 8’s Camera Setup.

Paying 14000INR, for a better processor can be a good option for those who want a performance-oriented phone, but then there are cheaper phones with the same Chipset.
But Paying 14000INR more for the Same RAM, Same Storage type, Same Camera sensor, a tad bit better audio, and increased battery capacity is not a good option.

I don’t think the price increase is justifiable for this increase in specs,
But OnePlus has said that don’t go by dollar essentially meaning that in India it could have aggressive pricing.
If it is Priced around 41-42K INR then it would be a much better option to go for.
But for proper performance reports, we will have to wait until the review comes out.

OnePlus 8 Pro

8 Pro is a Full-Fledged Flagship, and coming from the previous OnePlus 7T Pro, the price jump is also somewhat acceptable(~10000INR), we are getting a better Processor, LPDDR5 RAM, Sony IMX689 Sensor, better audio Increased Battery Capacity, Wireless Charging Support, 5G Support, and IP 68 Rating.
The Upgrade form the 7T Pro to 8 Pro is Great.
Also, the 8 Pro is now a phone which can go toe to toe against the likes of Pixel 4, iPhone 11 pro and Galaxy S20 Ultra, in almost all the aspects, whether it is camera, performance, build quality or features.

As it stands now, OnePlus 8 Pro can easily be the Cheapest True Flagship. Also, there is a Chance of the 8 Pro being cheaper in India. If the 8 Pro is priced at around 55-60K INR then it would be great bang for the buck

Final Verdict
