The OnePlus 8(₹ 44999 at flipkart) and 8 Pro support Warp Charge 30T, letting users juice up the device from zero to about 70% battery in 30 minutes. If you thought that's fast, we say, think again. An even faster-charging technology that employs 65W fast charging is already available in the market. In fact, a number of devices including the Oppo Find X 2 Pro and the Oppo Reno Ace have already embraced 65W fast charging. Other devices like the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro support 50W fast charging as well. 

Fast charging as a technology has been instrumental in getting smartphones to charge faster when plugged in. The OnePlus 8 Pro also supports fast wireless charging as well, but the OnePlus 8 does not support wireless charging. 

It was the OnePlus 3 and 3T that introduced fast charging to OnePlus devices via dash charge. This supported 20W fast charging. With the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus moved to Warp charge, claiming the smartphone could charge 50% in 20 min. 

The weakest link in a smartphone is the battery. However, a lot of innovation has been done to optimize the use of the battery in a smartphone. From apps not working in the background, to the power draw from the chipset and even display technology, all have contributed to optimize battery consumption. The battery capacity in smartphones too has increased, crossing the 5000mAh bark in some cases. 

If you are looking to pick up the OnePlus 8, then know that the smartphone will go on sale on May 11. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro launched via an online event in April. The phones are priced quite aggressively in the Indian market as compared to the US.

The OnePlus 8 base variant with 6GB+128GB storage starts at Rs 41,999. The mid-variant of the OnePlus 8 with 8GB RAM+128GB storage is priced at Rs 44,999 while the top variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage is priced at Rs 49,999. The OnePlus 8 Pro with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage starts at Rs 54,999 while the top variant with 12GB RAM + 256GB storage starts Rs 59,999.
