OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2020 and are set to launch on April 14 globally. While most of the key specifications are already out in the open courtesy of a steady flow of leaks, pricing is something that one can’t confirm till it’s officially announced.
However, looks like Czech e-tailer Alza jumped the gun with the listing of the two phones on its website that was subsequently spotted by WinFuture. According to the listing that seems to have been taken down since the OnePlus 8 will be offered at a starting price of 719 Euros for the base variant. It roughly translates to Rs 59,000 upon direct conversion, but a lot of factors play a part in the pricing of a phone for a particular region.
Similarly, the OnePlus 8 variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage could be priced at 819 Euros, while the OnePlus 8 Pro starts at 919 Euros for the base variant and 1009 Euros for the maxed-out version with 12GB RAM.
In comparison, the OnePlus 7T was priced starting at 579 Euros and a price increase of almost 200 Euros for the OnePlus 8 is rather exorbitant. Then again, the phone is powered by a top-of-the-line chipset with 5G support, but whether these features justify its price tag will be interesting to see.
Previously, CEO Pete Lau has reportedly said that the price of its flagship phone won’t exceed beyond $1,000, but the leaked pricing suggests otherwise. Having said that, the official launch of the OnePlus 8 series is just a week away and we’ll know for sure by then.
