OnePlus has scheduled to launch its upcoming OnePlus 8 flagship series on April 14. The manufacturer has already begun hinting at the new smartphone officially. It also announced some of the significant features, but no details about a price label. But, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau, has some news about such a thing. He unveiled the estimated cost of the next smartphone series.
OnePlus 8 Price Details
OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau, discussed price details with Business Insider. He stated that the next OnePlus 8 would arrive with a price tag of $1,000, meaning approximately Rs. 76,400 for Indian users, according to the report. Lau didn’t unveil the precise cost of the device. However, this information indicates the the flagship OnePlus 8 might reach the $1,000 price label at some point.
And, if it turns out to be true, then the upcoming smartphone would be the first device from OnePlus to release at such a cost. The base version of the OnePlus 8, on the other hand, might be launched as a low-budget variant than the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G model ($999,99). The price point, though, appears to be far more expensive than any other predecessor.
The high cost of the 5G connectivity is the reason, according to Lau. The technical challenges that the devs encountered to bring the 5G network were enormous.
OnePlus 8 Specs
As for specs, so far, the company confirmed that the OnePlus 8 smartphone would arrive with 5G connectivity support as the main feature. Also, the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 SoC.
OnePlus 8 has been tested by DisplayMate ahead of the release event. The website awarded the smartphone with an A+ grade for its sleek display. Other features include a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with HDR 10+ support and a refresh rate for 120Hz. OnePlus 8 is rumored to arrive with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
