OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro India prices to be revealed soon, will be more aggressive than US pricing

The OnePlus 8 series prices go up to $999 (about Rs 75,000) in the US, but India prices should be relatively lower

Highlights
  • The OnePlus 8 prices are $699 and $799 for the 8GB+128GB and 12GB+128GB variants, respectively
  • OnePlus 8 Pro 8GB+128GB option will set you back by $899, while 12GB+256GB variant costs $999
  • OnePlus 8 series is expected to start at much lower prices in the Indian market compared to the US

OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones have finally been launched with flagship specifications and features such as the 5G connectivity, Snapdragon 865 SoC, Fluid AMOLED display, and much more. The company had revealed the prices and availability of both the phones in the US but is yet announce prices for the Indian market. The OnePlus 8 price for the 8GB + 128GB variant is $699, whereas $799 is the price tag for the 12GB + 128GB option. Similarly, the OnePlus 8 Pro sets you back by $899 and $999, respectively, for the same configurations. These prices clearly show OnePlus phones are no longer the budget flagships as they are inching towards the $1,000 price mark. Obviously, there are concerns that the OnePlus 8 series in India, at least the Pro mode, will firmly be in the flagship territory. 

Now, in a tweet, OnePlus India mentioned the OnePlus 8 prices in India will be revealed soon, with emphasis on the prices not being a conversation from the dollar prices. This could mean the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro prices may be aggressive compared to their US and UK prices. We should know more details going forward. With Amazon allowed to resume deliveries as early as April 21st and the OnePlus 8 series listed on Amazon India, the official reveal of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro prices in India should not be too far away.
