So the OnePlus 8 seems to be a pretty solid upgrade over the OnePlus 7T. Snapdragon 865 Processor with 5G, 8GB or 12GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.0 Storage.

OnePlus 8 Camera
As far as the cameras go, OnePlus is not going the 64MP route. They seem to be sticking with a 48MP Primary camera with a 16MP Ultra Wide Camera and a 2MP macro sensor. The selfie camera would be a 16MP shooter.
OnePlus 8 Battery and Charging
As far as the batter goes, OnePlus is gonna come with a 4300mAh Battery with 30W Warp Charge 30T which basically means 30W Fast charging.
OnePlus 8 won’t be getting wireless charging or an IP Rating as this device is going to be more budget friendly. It is still going to cost a lot more than OnePlus 7T because of the Snapdragon 865 Processor. Snapdragon 865 is an expensive processor.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro Price
So the leaks suggest that the OnePlus 8 will come at a starting price of about ₹45,000 – ₹48,000(~USD 599) which is a huge jump from the ₹38,000 price at which OnePlus 7T was launched. Snapdragon 865 is a pretty expensive chipset and that’s one of the main reasons why these phones are going to be expensive.
OnePlus 8 Pro is supposed to start at around ₹62,000 – ₹65,000(~USD 849) which is insane. These new OnePlus phones will no longer be budget friendly devices. They are premium smartphones with a premium price and that is pretty clear. So these new OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will directly compete with the flagships from Apple, Samsung and Google.
