- OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro are the latest smartphones from the company
- The two smartphones bring industry leading specs and features
- Of the two, OnePlus 8 Pro is the true flagship
OnePlus 8 series of phones were launched earlier this week, with higher prices than ever before. However, as per the latest reports, this hasn't deterred fans from going for the phone with news coming in that the phones have done really well in their very first sale.
According to a report published by 9to5Google, all models of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro went out of stock within 10 minutes of OnePlus starting to take orders for the device. However, it is to be noted that this was a limited stock sale, with the devices going on a wider sale later this month on April 29 in the US.
But even so, the fact that the phones sold out so soon is quite interesting and shows there remains a lot of demand for the new OnePlus phones in the market.
To remind our readers, the OnePlus 8 series phones are the most expensive from the company to date. To begin with, the OnePlus 8 has been announced to start at a price of $699 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, with the higher end 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant priced at $799. Both the variants will be available in three colours, Onyx Black, Interstellar Glow, and Glacial Green.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is also coming with a more expensive price tag than the OnePlus 7T Pro, with the entry 8GB RAM+128GB storage starts retail at $899. The premium variant of the device with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will retail for $999. These variants will be available in three colours -- Onyx Black, Glacial Green and Ultramarine Blue.
For the price, both the phones get some really impressive specs, including Qualcomm's most powerful chipset to date, the Snapdragon 865 SoC which the company has paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage depending on your model and variant of choice. Both the phones are 5G ready and have been announced to support the same in all regions where the device can find a relevant network to latch on to.
