Rated R Miami

Iron Man just leaked the OnePlus 8 Pro in the wild, confirming quad camera system – PhoneArena

Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist… smartphone leaker?! We’ve known for a long time about the many talents of Robert Downey Jr., including an inability to age like a normal 54 year-old man, but we had no idea the Oscar-nominated actor was thinking of pivoting from a hugely successful Hollywood career to the occasionally satisfying but largely unglamorous work of a mobile industry rumormonger.

Of course, the likes of Evan Blass, Steve Hemmerstoffer, and Max Weinbach probably don’t need to worry about facing steady competition from Iron Man himself, as we’re pretty sure his OnePlus 8 Pro exposé will prove to be a one-time thing. Besides, RDJ almost certainly didn’t mean to “leak” the unreleased handset, simply being photographed holding the device during a break from shooting… a new OnePlus ad.

That essentially debunks our conspiracy theory, but either way, we’re happy to see the beautiful OnePlus 8 Pro in the flesh. While we’re only provided a partial view of the phone’s rear cover, that’s enough to tell this is an unreleased and unannounced OnePlus device with a grand total of four cameras slapped on its back.

 

The OnePlus 8 lineup will include three main variants

Unlike every single OnePlus handset released so far, the 8 Pro is essentially guaranteed to withstand water immersion and support wireless charging functionality. However, the key selling point might be a silky smooth 6.7-inch 120Hz display, a feature expected to be shared with the smaller 6.5-inch non-Pro OnePlus 8. The OnePlus 8 Lite could be slightly smaller than that, at 6.4 inches, as well as curveless, while supporting a humbler 90Hz refresh rate that would still be pretty impressive by mid-end standards.

As for the three “conventional” rear cameras of both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, these are tipped to come with 64, 20, and 12 megapixel counts, combining a main shooter with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a telephoto sensor equipped with 10x “hybrid” zoom capabilities. Last but certainly not least, the OnePlus 8 Pro should pack a massive 4,500mAh battery supporting state-of-the-art fast charging technology that could allow the phone to go from 0 to 100 percent capacity in a little over half an hour. 

Oh, and let’s not forget about 5G connectivity, which all but guarantees these bad boys won’t come cheap.
