The prices of OnePlus phones have crept up over the years, but the same can be said of competing flagships. The latest generation is the most expensive yet, however, the company has kept them all under $1,000, even for the Pro version with 256GB storage.
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be available on open sale in the US starting on April 29. You will be able to get one from OnePlus.com, Amazon and from carriers Verizon and T-Mobile.
Note that Verizon has exclusivity on a OnePlus 8 version with mmWave 5G and Polar Silver color. Verizon wont offer the 8 Pro, only the vanilla model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Its not clear if unlocked OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones will work on its LTE network, let alone its 5G network.
