Even if it will take some time before the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are presented, the prices for the next top cell phones are already set. But there won't be two new models, because a OnePlus 8 Lite is also being planned.
According to information from PhoneArena , the prices for the upcoming OnePlus 8 series have been fixed months before the actual release. According to this, the Pro version of the Chinese flagship in the USA should be available in the simplest configuration for $ 720, which currently corresponds to around € 650. For this price, there is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent storage. In the best configuration, the OnePlus 8 Pro should be available for $ 870, i.e. 785 euros. Then there is also 12 GB of RAM and an internal capacity of 256 GB.
With the OnePlus 8 standard version, customers should be able to choose between three variants. The cheapest version with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM should be available for the equivalent of 487 euros, while there will be twice as much storage space for a little less than 525 euros. The best-equipped version of the OnePlus 8 is said to be available in the United States for 560 euros, in this case there is 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of RAM. In Germany, however, the final prices are likely to be somewhat higher.
The OnePlus 8 Lite will be even cheaper, even if the hardware has to be cut back considerably. The Lite version of the OnePlus 8 is expected to start in the US from 430 US dollars, which currently corresponds to a little less than 390 euros. Despite the low price, the manufacturer wants to install 8 GB RAM and 128 GB hard disk in the simplest version. If you want 256 GB of memory, you are asked to pay a little more than 430 euros. However, it is not yet clear whether the OnePlus 8 Lite will be made available in all markets.
According to Leaks, all versions of the OnePlus 8 should be equipped with a four-way rear camera. In the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8, the main sensor should allow images with up to 64 MP, while the OnePlus 8 Lite has to be satisfied with 48 MP. There are also clear differences in the processor: While in the OnePlus 8 (Pro) the fast Snapdragon 865 is likely to set the pace, the Lite version of the Dimension 1000 from MediaTek is used.
Differences between the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 can be found, among other things, in the display and battery. The OL version of the Pro version is said to have a diagonal of 6.7 inches, while the OnePlus 8 comes to 6.5 inches. Both displays are said to have a 120 Hertz mode . The battery of the OnePlus 8 Pro with a capacity of 4,500 mAh is 500 mAh stronger and can be charged with 50 watts instead of 30 watts.
OnePlus could launch the new line of cell phones earlier this year than expected. A release in May 2020 is no longer expected. Instead, the OnePlus 8 series could already be waiting for us in March or April 2020.
