OnePlus announced the OnePlus eight and OnePlus 8 Pro last week globally and in its home country of China a few days later. However, it failed to reveal the pricing details for India at the global launch event. The prices for the two phones were finally released today at 8 PM IST.
The OnePlus 8 will besoon available in three variants in India, unlike other countries where it is available in two variants. Below are the variants and their respective prices:
6GB + 128GB (Glacial Green only) = INR 41,999 (~$549)
8GB + 128GB (Glacial Green and Onyx Black) = INR 44,999 (~$588)
12GB + 256GB (Glacial Green, Interstellar Black, Onyx Black) = INR 49,999 (~$653)
The OnePlus 8 Pro, also on the other hand, will come in two variants:
8GB + 128GB (Glacial Green and Onyx Black) = INR 54,999 (~$718)
12GB + 256GB (Glacial Green, Onyx Black, and Ultramarine Blue) = INR 59,999 (~$784)
OnePlus has also revealed the price of the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z earphones. The Bluetooth earphones will sell for INR 1,999 (~$26) At this price, and with the features it offers, this should sell like hotcakes.
The OnePlus 8 & OnePlus 8 Pro are definitely cheaper than the price in the US. Take, for example, the 12GB version of the OnePlus 8 Pro, which is more than $200 cheaper than the selling price ($999) in the US.
The OnePlus 8 series sold in India is definitely manufactured in India, which means it should be cheaper than in countries where it is imported. However, phone manufacturers in India have been forced to increase prices recently based on the increase in GST tax on mobile phones. Nevertheless, OnePlus has been able to price its new flagships quite well.
OnePlus says the phones will be available for purchase next month but didn’t specify a date.
