OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro UK pricing revealed hours ahead of launch

The OnePlus 8 lineup is unveiled today and we’re getting two phones – the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. We already defined what to expect, but there was a huge gap where the price should have been.

Well, over-eager UK retailer John Lewis listed the phones in Onyx Black or Glacial Green along with their memory combinations and price tags hours before the announcement to fill us in. The OnePlus 8 starts at £599, the base OnePlus 8 Pro model is £799.

OnePlus 8 OnePlus 8 Pro
8 GB of RAM + 128 GB of storage £599 £799
12 GB of RAM + 256 GB of storage £699 £899

Comparing the OnePlus 8 with its predecessor, we can see that the 8/128GB variant costs £50 more. The European market hasn’t been blessed with double the storage, but now that’s correcting itself – if you’re willing to pay the extra £100.

Comparing the OnePlus 8 Pro to the OnePlus 7T Pro is where the shock lies – the 8/128GB is £100 more expensive than its 8/256GB predecessor. Matching the storage would cost you £899, which is £200 more than the 7T Pro, although you’ll also get an additional 4GB of RAM.

It looks like OnePlus is done undermining the big dogs and is now ready to challenge them at the same price points. Here’s hoping its new lineup has what it takes to really set new benchmarks for the industry.

Thanks for the tip, Andrew Parnham.
