OxygenOS 10.5.5 brings several camera improvements to the OnePlus 8

That is pretty much everything that OxygenOS 10.5.5 brings to the OnePlus 8. The OnePlus 8 Pro actually received a very similar update, but with a different marking. It is called OxygenOS 10.5.6 in the case of the OnePlus 8 Pro.

They both offer curved displays, and vertically-aligned cameras on the back. The OnePlus 8 Pro is a bit larger than its sibling, though, and has a number of advantages.
The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a more powerful camera setup, and it also offers an official IP certification. The device comes with newer and faster RAM, and it also supports 30W wireless charging. The OnePlus 8 does not support wireless charging at all.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is quite a bit more expensive than its sibling, though. Both devices are more expensive than consumers expected, mainly because of 5G.
