OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro have gone up for pre-orders in India. The two phones went up for pre-order starting midnight April 28 hours after the company revealed the price of its wireless charging dock in India.
Interestingly, there’s no clarity on when the phones will start shipping to buyers in the country. While the expectation is the deliveries should start in the next few days, but there really isn’t any guarantee considering the country is in the midst of an unprecedented lockdown to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
To remind our readers, the prices of the OnePlus 8 series phones start from Rs 41,999 in India which will be for OnePlus 8’s 6+128 RAM and storage variant. The 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the OnePlus 8 is available in Onyx Black and Glacial Green colours. The variant has been priced at Rs 44,999 and will be up for purchase from all online and offline channels.
The highest-end variant of the OnePlus 8 — 12GB RAM and 256GB storage — has been priced at Rs 49,999 and will be available in three colours, Onyx Black, Glacial Green and Interstellar Glow. This variant too will be available across online and offline channels.

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.
Of the two, it is the OnePlus 8 Pro that gets the more powerful cameras.
