It also has a 16-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. OnePlus 8 Pro is equally good when it comes to camera.

It also comes with an 8-megapixel telephoto camera that has 3x optical zoom and can zoom up to 30x digitally. Plus, it has a 5-megapixel new image sensor called the color filter lens , which supports lighting effects and filters for photography. A common feature in both the variants is the 16-megapixel front facing camera.
OnePlus has always maintained its reputation when it comes to battery life. The 8 variant comes with a 4,300-mAh battery, which is bigger than the 3,800-mAh battery in OnePlus 7T, while the 8 Pro comes with a 4,510-mAh battery. This is the biggest OnePlus has ever put in a handset. If your eyes are on the 8 Pro, the good news is OnePlus has finally added wireless charging support to this variant with the new Warp Charge 30.

The 8 Pro too has a Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with a Snapdragon X55 modem for 5G connectivity. However, the 8 Pro offers better performance and is faster as compared to the 8 variant.
