OnePlus has officially launched its truly flagship smartphone in 2020. There are two models; the standard OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus 8 Pro
The OnePlus 8 Pro sports a bigger dual-curved side 6.78-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate up to 120Hz. It features a hole-punch notch on the top left that houses 16-megapixels SONY IMX471 camera sensor.

It packed with 4,510 mAh battery that supports OnePlus Warp Charge 30T wired and as well as 30W Warp Wireless Charge.
