Before starting this comparison, let me tell you that if you are up to date and have OnePlus 7 Pro I hope it's because of it just curious and see what's the difference in the new generation of the OnePlus reference phone, and not because your idea is to convert your current phone to a new model. You really don't. The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the current smartphones, and the development that this new generation, though enticing, does not support the fact that eliminating a fantastic cellphone as the OnePlus 7 Pro is still, will cost you more than 900 euros for the new generation. Except that money doesn't really matter to you, of course.
That said, the truth is the changes introduced by the new model are interesting, and most of them come to fill – at least a few – the shortcomings of the previous generation.

The difference between the two models is obvious from the moment we compare them face to face for the first time. According to beauty statistics, The OnePlus 7 Pro is a wide and far-flung phone than the 8 Pro, its 6.78-inch screen with a average Too much height makes the new app longer and shorter. In addition, without using the same materials, we obtain a something simple than last year's model.
But I fear that all changes will not be equally welcomed. There will be those who like the totally clean in front of OnePlus 7 Pro, thanks to the introduction of the "pop-up" camera module in the new generation it is being replaced by a away from the screen which remains the same 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor. Also, in the case of this year's model wrapping the panel side is even more pronounced
Of course, instead of the OnePlus 8 Pro it must be said that, in the end, we have one IP68 Certificate which ensures water and dust resistance. Last year, OnePlus demanded that the 7 Pro already be able to tolerate bumps or dangerous gaps, but it does not help to have a certificate supporting this opposition.
Up to 120 Hz
Also, we're talking about the screen, as expected we are facing two parallel panels. Apart from the size difference – 6.67 inches in 7 Pro vs 6.78 inches in 8 Pro-, they share a few features, among them Quad HD + Optimization with Fluid AMOLED technology. However, this year OnePlus decided to make a jump on it 120 Hz, so the refresh rate rises by 30 Hz from last year's model. And even though it doesn't seem like a jump as the 60-120 Hz jump was, any extra fluidity is welcome.
Some of the details are already a fingerprint reader on the screen, faster and more accurate than the model released in the middle of last year.
The life-giving elements of the telephone have emerged: as usual, we now have one Qualcomm & # 39; s core processor, And RAM now uses LPDDR5 technology, which is faster and more efficient than the LPDDR4x technology used by 7 Pro. Which does not change storage, because 128 or 256 GB UFS 3.0 is stored.
And finally, wireless charging on OnePlus mobile
The big jump is on its battery. Not only in terms of capacity – and also, from 4,000 to 4,510 mAh, but also increasingly charging technology
For cable, we still have a Warp Charge 30T that allows you to charge the battery up to 50% in about 25 minutes. However, for the first time in product history, it was introduced Qi Wireless Charging, with a maximum allowable power of 30W allowing to charge up to 50% in half an hour using the official charger will be sold by OnePlus at its official store, at a price close to 80 euros. In this sense, moreover, replace the wireless charging which allows you to "share" the battery with other devices, whether cell phones or accessories, as long as they are compatible with wireless charging.
Extra camera and improved primary sensor
Another important change introduced by the new generation is related to its photographic category. Of three cameras of OnePlus 7 Pro we now have the four senses in the back.
The first one keeps the 48 megapixel resolution, even though we're currently talking about the Sony IMX689, with a larger size that offers detailed and light shooting even in low-light scenes. Nearby we find the 48-megapixel Sony IMX589 sensor – the one used by OnePlus 7 Pro as the main sensor -, which works in this new model Ultra Wide Angle Camera It can take up to 119 degrees.
Otherwise, it stays the same 8-megapixel "telephoto" with 3x optimized zoom, and an additional sensor is installed when OnePlus refers to it as a "color filter camera", which provides a series of artistic effects and filters in real time.
The differences between the two types are clear, and it cannot be denied OnePlus 8 Pro is a totally new phone than the 7 Pro, which ultimately has the power to stand out for the most expensive models in the market. Of course, all of these improvements are priced, of course 200 euros the difference from the basic model of OnePlus 7 Pro.
