The European OnePlus 8T prices have been leaked and are sure to disappoint fans.
By the shovel (via GSM Arena) the OnePlus 8T costs € 799 for the base model with 8 GB and 128 GB.
The variant with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of native memory is expected to cost 899 euros.
In contrast, the OnePlus 7T started at 599 euros. The OnePlus 8 was introduced with a base price of € 699.
OnePlus has steadily increased the price of its smartphones. With the OnePlus 8, we were able to record the largest price increase in the company’s history. The OnePlus 8 was a € 100 increase over the OnePlus 7T, and at € 899, the OnePlus 8 Pro was € 140 more than the OnePlus 7T Pro.
In defense of the company, the OnePlus 8 duo is powered by the Snapdragon 865 and offers 5G connectivity. The Pro model has a 120Hz display and is also the company’s first handset to offer wireless charging, as well as the first IP68 waterproof phone. And even after the price hike, it didn’t cost as much as similarly specified phones from Huawei and Samsung.
While the leak doesn’t mention that OnePlus 8T Pro, we can assume a similar price increase. If you look at the rumored specs, the OnePlus 8T Pro doesn’t look as much like an upgrade over the OnePlus 8 Pro as the 8 Pro over its predecessor, and this makes it a little harder to digest the rumored price tag. This also means that the beefiest model is likely to break the $ 1,000 mark.
The OnePlus 8T is expected to keep the same Snapdragon 865 chip and 48MP main sensor as OnePlus 8. Rumor has it that a slightly larger battery changes with it 65W fast charge and a 120Hz screen.
The OnePlus 8T Pro will likely be powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus and may have a new one 64MP main camera.
The leaker has full faith in its source, so we hesitate to write this off as a sketchy rumor.
