Chinese phone maker OnePlus launched its latest flagships, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro at an online-only event yesterday. While the event was one worthy of a flagship product launch, it did lack the glitz and glam that we’ve come to associate with OnePlus launches in the past.
However, the same cannot be said of the two phones, both of which bring a refined design and feature set to easily make them the most premium OnePlus smartphones to have been created to date. But as we have seen in the past, truly premium flagships don’t come cheap — something that also looks true for the OnePlus 8 series of phones too.
OnePlus 8 Pricing
The company has announced the OnePlus 8 will start at a price of $699 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, with the higher end 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant priced at $799. On the other hand, the OnePlus 8 Pro’s entry variant with 8GB RAM+128GB storage starts retail at $899.
The premium variant of the device with 12GB RAM and 256GB has been priced at $999.
This makes the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro the most expensive OnePlus phones to have been launched to date, with the $999 price point even placing the OnePlus 8 Pro’s top-end variant in the same league as expensive flagships from Samsung and Apple.
