What’s New in Oneplus 8:
Screen up to 120Hz, wireless fast charge and 5G OnePlus 8 does not appear to be concerned about the coronavirus. Its strategy in India will be entirely online and its new flagship can only be acquired through Internet sales. The Chinese company has presented its new high range of mobile phones in full quarantine and via streaming to continue in the elite of smartphones and fight with the ’premium’ of iPhone, Samsung or Huawei. The One Plus 8 and the PRO version (both bet on 5G connectivity) have the aesthetics of those of Cupertino, it is close to the specifications of the South Korean giant, and its price is already close to its Shenzhen counterpart.
The technology industry was one of the first to notice the effects of Covid-19 with the cancellation of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in the middle of February. A month and a half later, despite the worldwide drop in the sale of mobile phones, according to several specialized consultancies, the figures have decreased at rates ranging from 14%, in the best case, to 38%, the sector It may be one of the first to recover once normalcy has recovered in China, as restrictions in the country have relaxed.

OnePlus 8 does not have the advertising muscle of the competition, but the Chinese company has an excellent word of mouth among users and technology lovers that have attracted the Chinese company to buyers of iPhone, Samsung or Huawei smartphones for its value for money. Currently the company operates in 38 regions of the world and boasts sales (without saying numbers) of the OnePlus 7. ”The response has been very good,” said the head of OnePlus in India, a few months ago. According to the latest available data, from 2017 to 2018, sales of Chinese brand smarphones increased by 45% worldwide. Much of the company’s success lies in the way it conceives its phones. The company’s offices in India explain that its growth responds to two keys, such as community and product focus. The Asian takes advantage of the forums to have a fluid conversation with users – her community numbers more than 5 million active members – and to know what the needs are, the points to improve and what they should look to design the new models.
”Our goal has never been to be good at making cheap phones, we just wanted to make the best phone possible.” They are statements by Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, during a recent interview.
A ’Winning Horse’ Processor:
Among the specifications of the new terminals, the curved screen of the OnePlus 8 (6.55 inches) and 8 Pro (6.78 inches) will be AMOLED and its refresh rate will be 90 Hz and 120 Hz, respectively (the fastest figure we see right now on mobiles, as is the case with this ’Android iPhone’, it could reach a maximum of 1,300 nits of brightness, so it would play in the same competition as those of the bitten apple logo.

They have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, which always means betting on the winning horse in terms of performance. RAM and internal storage configurations up to 12GB and 256GB, respectively. As for the cameras, the main novelty is that the company has opted to eliminate the removable pop-up format from the front with which it tested on the previous model; now it becomes integrated into a hole in the upper left corner.
The OnePlus 8 Pro has a 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera, a 48MP wide-angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 5MP depth camera. At the front, it has a 16MP camera.
