Last month, we had shared exclusively shared camera specifications of the OnePlus 8 Pro in collaboration with tipster Ishan Agarwal. With the launch just a few days away, and more specifications are still surfacing online. In the latest leak from Roland Quandt of Winfuture, we get a ton of details about the camera configuration on the OnePlus 8 series. It also corroborates our exclusive report. The Pro variant will sport a quad-camera setup while the standard model will come with triple cameras.
We know that the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera configuration comprises of a 48MP Sony IMX686 main sensor, another 48MP ultra-wide shooter featuring an IMX586 sensor, a 16MP telephoto zoom lens and lastly a 5MP colour filter camera. The telephoto lens will feature a hardware-based OIS allowing 3x hybrid zoom and 30x digital zoom. The OnePlus 8 Pro’s colour filter camera will offer artistic lighting effects and filters. The smartphone is said to offer a macro mode via the ultra-wide-angle camera as well.
Video recording on the OnePlus 8 Pro will be limited to 4K @ 60fps instead of 8K, even though the processor supports it. The reason for 4K recording is because the company will use its HDR technology that combines three 4K frames at a time to ensure good lighting in the videos. The smartphone will be equipped with optical and electronic image stabilisation for shake-free 4K video recording. The report says that the OnePlus 8 Pro will offer audio zoom function due to the three microphones present on the device. It will allow the user to zoom in on a subject and record the sound. The feature was previously seen on HTC and LG smartphones. The OnePlus 8 Pro will be equipped with a flicker sensor that prevents image flickering in videos from artificial light sources.
As for the standard OnePlus 8, the device is expected to be equipped with a 48MP Sony IMX586 main sensor accompanied by a 16MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro shooter. This one too will come with EIS and OIS with 4K video recording support. The OnePlus 8 series is expected to come with an improved Pro mode, RAW format and more. On the front, both the standard and Pro variants will feature a 16MP front-facing cameras with a slight difference in aperture.
The OnePlus 8 series is confirmed to come with a 120Hz AMOLED screen and Snapdragon 865 processor paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. Recently, the brand confirmed support for 30W wireless charging on the upcoming flagship smartphone.
