OnePlus 8 and 8 ProSource: Daniel Bader / Android Central

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are now official, and they're packing a lot of exciting new features. The OnePlus 8 Pro in particular has a host of new upgrades, including 30W wireless charging, IP68 water resistance, and a 120Hz AMOLED panel at QHD+ resolution.

The caveat here is that all the exciting new features are limited to the OnePlus 8 Pro. The regular OnePlus 8 is instead an upgraded variant of the OnePlus 7T: you get a 90Hz panel with upgraded internals, 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM as standard. The phone has the same 48MP camera at the back, but comes with a larger 4300mAh battery.

There's no wireless charging or IP68 dust and water resistance on the regular unlocked version of the OnePlus 8. That said, you will find a few carrier models of the device that offer an IP68 rating, but if you want wireless charging, you'll have to pick up the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's the full breakdown of the hardware on offer:

Both models in the OnePlus 8 series offer 5G connectivity, but they won't work on all networks. The unlocked models are limited to Sub-6 connectivity, so they will only work on T-Mobile and Sprint's 5G networks. Verizon, meanwhile, is selling a carrier model of the regular OnePlus 8 that has mmWave connectivity, but it isn't offering the OnePlus 8 Pro in the same configuration.

The OnePlus 8 starts off at $700, and the OnePlus 8 Pro is set to retail for $900. Interested in learning more? Hit up our detailed reviews for more on each device.
