OnePlus 8 series is one of the heavily leaked smartphones so far this year, so we already know quite a lot about the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. However, while the OnePlus CEO clarified that OnePlus 8 would be under the $1,000 price bracket, the CEO didn’t reveal the exact price point of the duo.
Today, UK retailer John Lewis has leaked all the pricing details of OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Both the smartphones will be available in two different variants — 8GB/128 and 12GB/256GB.
The price of the upcoming OnePlus 8 series will be higher than its predecessors, as OnePlus CEO Pete Lau had already said in an interview. The most affordable OnePlus 8 with 5G, 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will cost 599 GBP (699 USD in the US), while the 12GB/256GB model will be priced at 699 GBP (779 USD in the US).
The OnePlus 8 Pro will cost 100 GBP more than the price of the OnePlus 8. The Pro model with 8GB RAM and 128 storage will be available at a price point of 799 GBP (899 USD in the US), while the 12GB/256GB model will cost 899 GBP (999 USD in the US).
- OnePlus 8 8GB / 128GB: approx. 599 GBP (699 USD in the US)
- OnePlus 8 12GB / 256GB: approx. 699 GBP (799 USD in the US)

For the sake of comparison, last year’s OnePlus 7T is currently priced at £549 (~$681) in the UK, while the 7T Pro is selling at £699 (~$868). OnePlus CEO Pete Lau attributed the increase in price to the introduction of 5G technology in the OnePlus 8 series.
