Both the smartphones will have the same Snapdragon 865 SoC processor. When it comes to display the OnePlus 8 supports a 6.55-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display, while the OnePlus 8 Pro comes with slightly bigger 6.78-inch QHD+ Super Fluid AMOLED.

Now for the cameras which have been one of the major highlights of the OnePlus devices, the OnePlus 8 is reportedly having a triple-camera setup with one 48MP primary sensor, a 16MP secondary sensor as well as a 2MP sensor. The more expensive alternative OnePlus 8 Pro has a quad-camera setup with two 48 MP sensors, one of which is for ultra-wide shots, an 8MP secondary sensor which comes with a 5MP sensor as well. On the front, the device has a 16MP selfie camera with A.I. features and lot many modes to capture images in.

Coming to the battery life, the OnePlus 8 comes with 4,300 mAh capacity as opposed to the 4510 mAh battery the OnePlus 8 Pro houses. Both the smartphones will also be capable of using the 30W Warp Charge 30T technology of the company. It has been claimed by OnePlus that the wireless charger will be able to charge the phone from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. Now that is really impressive.

Both these devices fit in really well in their own categories. The OnePlus 8 has all of the things one can expect from an OnePlus device such as a flawless screen, noteworthy performance, great battery life. However, its camera could stand to be a little better.

However, OnePlus 8 Pro which comes at a hefty price tag of $999, OnePlus could not have risked having a missing feature or two. It is fast, elegant, and does everything one expects a flagship model to do. Many reviewers and tech enthusiasts now believe that the device’s main competition is quite undoubtedly the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus.

No matter whatever we or any device reviewers say, eventually it’s customers who are going to judge the device to understand if it’s a real value for money. We will keep you updated on all future updates.
