OnePlus 8 price leak reveals it would cost more than the OnePlus 7T. The launch date for OnePlus 8 is near (it is scheduled for April 14) and reliable leaks are coming in, including a new source claiming to know how much it will cost.
Although the inside of the phones has been revealed by plenty of leaked information, the latest price leak indicates the current handsets would be considerably more costly than the predecessors.
The leaked prices come our way through WinFuture obtained from a Czech retailer Alza who put up the model’s specifications and costs. They have since been removed but some eyes on the internet were not prevented from finding them.
OnePlus 8 price leak reveals it would cost more than the OnePlus 7T
According to the report, the OnePlus 8 base model (8GB RAM, 128GB storage) is going to cost € 729 (around £ 640, $800, AU$1,250, often Rs. 133,999 PKR). The OnePlus 7T, by contrast, cost € 579 ($599/ £ 549/around Rs. 105,000 PKR).
However, the OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to go even higher with the above source saying the phone would cost €929 for the base 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage configuration (about £ 800, $1,000, AU$1,600, often Rs. 169,999 PKR).
This does not come as a major surprise given that OnePlus last year has successively raised the prices of the newest models. This is also likely to be the first time that OnePlus has offered 5 G on its entire range of apps, so the price rise may also be triggered.
Considering the jump, these are probably some of the most affordable 5 G phones on the market, especially compared to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the Oppo Find X2 starting nearly € 1,000.
Even if the original price matches the leaks, in some markets, such as India, we expect the upcoming OnePlus phones to be priced lower than this. But nothing is known yet, and we will have to wait until April 14 to find out the official information.
