The proverbial Chinese diligence goes on, as OnePlus built some mind-blowing gadgets when it released the 8 and 8 Pro versions. Video recording in 4K and a minimum of 8 GB of RAM are just a few of the highlights. Both devices were released this year on the same day, April 21.
If you own either of the two OnePlus models, get ready for more security and performance improvements that come along with the August update.
OnePlus announces the August 2020 update
OnePlus itself made the big announcement, and the big update has already started rolling out for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones. Let’s focus on the most exciting changes:
- Fixed issues and improved system stability
- Updated the Android Security Patch to 2020.08
- Fixed the overlapping character display issue using Ambient display
- Optimized shooting effect for the front camera
OnePlus describes its 8 Pro model as following:
“Redefine what it means to be fast with the OnePlus 8 Pro. With a 120 Hz QHD+ AMOLED display, the OnePlus 8 Pro delivers your favorite shows and games with speed and smoothness. Top-of-the-line hardware matched with a burdenless software experience ensure this is the best flagship experience around. And you’ll never be without power long, thanks to Warp Charge 30 Wireless, which delivers wireless charging with unrivaled speed and convenience. “
There’s no wonder why OnePlus 8 Pro is presented as great for gaming. The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 (7 nm+) chipset, 8/12 GB of RAM, and two versions of storage: 128GB and 256GB. There’s enough space there to store the most demanding smartphone games available, and the experience can become even more fun once you connect a controller via Bluetooth.
The price for OnePlus 8 Pro revolves around the amount of $748, and you better consider buying yourself a piece if you’re willing to own a powerful flagship phone.
