The OnePlus 8 Pro was subjected to JerryRigsEverything's suite of endurance test and even went through a full teardown revealing secrets about the OnePlus 8 Pro's durability and the hardware inside.
The OnePlus 8 Pro(₹ 48999 at amazon) has endured the torture chamber on the JerryRigsEverything YouTube channel. Teardown expert Zack Nelson from JerryRigsEverything performed his suite of endurance tests and took the OnePlus 8 Pro apart, revealing more details about its durability, repairing and the underlying hardware inside the flagship smartphone. Nelson’s tests are brutal (and dare I say it, pretty ASMR), but reveals just how far can you push the OnePlus 8 Pro through wear and tear.
He starts off with the scratch test on the 6.78-inch QHD+ display. The screen gets scratches on level 6 on the moh scale and deep gashes on level 7. The colour finish on the edges of the smartphone was also quite peel off in the test. He notes the rubber caps on the SIM card tray to prevent water getting in, and checks the back panel for scratches. The fingerprint sensor worked after the scratch test, which is notable.
On the burn test, the OnePlus 8 Pro survives with a white-yellow burn mark on the 10-bit screen while in the bend test, the phone does flex but doesn’t crack open or change shape.
In another video, Nelson takes the OnePlus 8 Pro apart, opening the rear glass panel to reveal the wireless charging coil, the camera setup and more, revealing as Nelson notes, “the best looking phone guts we have seen in a while”.
The teardown reveals the Sony IMX 689 48MP sensor is almost as large as the 108MP sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It also notes that the copper coils used for wireless charging are far denser and has more windings than the on on the S20 Ultra. There’s also a heat pipe to draw heat away from the processor.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is the brand’s first true flagship succeeding the OnePlus 7T Pro. It’s price starts from $899 in the US and will be available in India after the lockdown lifts. As expected, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC, along with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage. There’s a large 4,510mAh battery that tops up with 30W of wired and wireless charging, and offers a quad camera setup at the back. That includes two 48MP sensors, an 8MP telephoto lens and a colour filter lens. The OnePlus 8 Pro also rocks a 10-bit 6.78-inch AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Quite an interesting pacakge, this.
The price and availability of the OnePlus 8 Pro are not out yet. The smartphone is listed on Amazon India and OnePlus has said it will be revealing the price on Sunday, April 19 exclusively to Red Cable Club members.
