The launch of OnePlus‘ new flagship smartphones usher in a time that the company is pushing itself to be an average premium brand. Not average quality-wise, as OnePlus devices are generally solid, but average in terms of price.

(Update, April 20: We have the local pricing! Read Philippine prices of OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro revealed.)

Take a look at how much each OnePlus 8 series model costs:

Are they worth the money, though? Looks like it, at least on paper. The phones are powerful as high-end handsets come. Think 5G support and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. Think punch-hole displays with high refresh rates — 90Hz for the regular unit and 120Hz for the bigger, more-beefed-up Pro. We’re not surprised that the screens got an A+ rating from DisplayMate. just like the OnePlus 7 Pro‘s panel.

Wireless charging and water resistance are finally offered on a OnePlus smartphone. The OnePlus 8 Pro supports 30-watt wireless charging, the same speed as its wired-charging capability — though you have to buy the official Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger for $69.95 (P3,549) to maximize that feature. It also gets an IP68 rating.

Both are equipped with the new 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor used by the OPPO Find X2 Pro. But the Pro variant comes with three other sensors, one of them is another 48-megapixel one, but a Sony IMX586 this time. The OnePlus 8, on the other hand, has three cameras on the back.
