- The OnePlus 8 series is said to come with a starting price of around Rs 60,000

- The handsets are likely to come with a new version of OxygenOS running atop Android 10
OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are all set to launch at an online-only event on April 14th globally and in India. With the specifications of the phones already been confirmed and leaked, all eyes are now on the prices. It now seems that too has leaked out ahead of the launch event as a Slovakian retailer has revealed the alleged OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro prices. The retailer listed the OnePlus 8 phones along with their price and detailed specifications on its shopping platform. While those listings have since been removed, they were up long enough for us to get a good look at what each variant may cost in European markets.
OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro price
As per the listings, the OnePlus 8 price will start at EUR 729, which roughly translates to Rs 60,451, for the base 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model. The phone will also come with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage option, which is said to cost EUR 835 (~Rs 69,241). The OnePlus 8 Pro, meanwhile, will reportedly cost EUR 930 (~Rs 77,532) for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, while the top spec’d 12GB RAM and 256GB storage model will go for EUR 1,020 (~Rs 84,582).
Even if the company tries to launch the OnePlus 8 series in India at a competitive price, we are looking at prices above Rs 50,000.
Do note that these are European prices, which may not be indicative of how OnePlus will price the devices in India. OnePlus is known for pricing its phones competitively in a price-sensitive market like India. That being said, even if the company tries to launch the OnePlus 8 series in the country aggressively, we are looking at prices above Rs 50,000.

The chipset is expected to be paired with 8GB/ 12GB of RAM and 128GB/ 256GB storage options. The latest leak suggests that the 256GB storage variants of the phones will not be available in all colour options. The handsets will run Android 10 OS out of the box, but it’s likely to have a new OxygenOS version running atop with dark mode support for more apps.
