OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched earlier this week, but the company didn’t reveal Indian pricing at the launch event. With the OnePlus 8 starting off at $699 and the OnePlus 8 Pro debuting at $899, that led to a lot of consternation from Indian customers as to how costly the devices would end up being in India.
OnePlus tried to assuage fears with a tweet, and the launch of the OnePlus 8 series in China — with both devices retailing for $135 less than their phone which sales in the US — further cemented the fact that the phones will be Discount more in India.
Now we have official confirmation from OnePlus on the same. The OnePlus 8 will go on sale in India for ₹41,999 ($550), and the OnePlus 8 Pro will be available for ₹54,999 ($720). It’s $149 less than what the OnePlus 8 retails for in the U.S., and $179 less than the going rate for the OnePlus 8 Pro. Interestingly, the base variant of the OnePlus 8 in India comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, versus 8GB/128GB in other markers.
Here are the full details on OnePlus 8 pricing in India:
- OnePlus 8 6GB/128GB (Glacial Green): ₹41,999 ($550)
- OnePlus 8 8GB/128GB (Onyx Black, Glacial Green): ₹44,999 ($590)

- OnePlus 8 Pro 12GB/256GB (Onyx Black, Glacial Green, Ultramarine Blue): ₹59,999 ($785).
In fact, the high-end 12GB/256GB option of the OnePlus 8 Pro in India ends up being more affordable than the base variant of the same model in other markets. It’s obvious why OnePlus is offering its latest devices at a more affordable price point in India: the country accounts for over a third of OnePlus’ global sales, and with the company being the leading manufacturer in the high-end category, it needs to maintain its position.
