OnePlus 8 Pro: full camera specs & new features leak out, along with more color options
Some existing reports have pointed to upgraded quadruple rear cameras in the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro premium smartphone. They are thought to be made up of 48+48+5+8MP sensors; now, a fresh leak purports to outline what each of them does and what they may offer the user.
This new tip, allegedly obtained by Ishan Agarwal and published through PriceBaba, states that the 8 Pro's new main shooter will be the IMX689. This is the novel f/1.78 Sony sensor that debuted "exclusively" in the OPPO Find X2 flagship series. It is paired to the also-48MP IMX586, which had the role of primary lens in this upcoming OnePlus' predecessor.
In the newer phone, it will apparently take on an ultra-wide role instead, with a new 120-degree field of view and a 2.2 f-stop. The remaining sensors are allegedly for "Color Filter" (5MP) and telephoto (f/2.44 8MP, with 3X optical & 30X digital zoom capabilities) purposes.
This set-up reportedly comes with new features, each with a novel marketing name. They include a "Night Portrait Mode", along with "Cinematic Effects". OnePlus may have also developed something called "3-HDR Video" for the 8 Pro, not to mention improved OIS.
These new abilities have already been rumored to come packaged in a chassis that has not diverged greatly from the previous generation in terms of design. On the other hand, the 8 series is said to offer new colors: Green, Black and a more mysterious-sounding "Glow". The blog WinFuture now claims to have discovered what this last term means: an innovative gradient in which an almost Thunder-like purple transitions to a gold-orange sunset effect.
Otherwise, the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to offer the Snapdragon 865 SoC, a possibly next-gen form of Warp Charge and to introduce wireless charging by this OEM. However, all these potential details are still waiting on its launch event for their confirmation.
