What you need to know
- The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are set to be announced today at a streamed event.
- The phone has already gone on sale in some parts of the world, confirming specs and pricing.
- In the UK, the OnePlus 8 family will run you from £599 all the way to £899 for the highest specced Pro.
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are to be announced today in just a short number of hours, but they're already on sale on some parts of the word. The UK retailer John Lewis listed the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro as available for sale on now pulled pages. It'll be selling them in two configurations each, an Onyx Black base version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and a Glacier Green variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. All will ship with 5G built-in.
The OnePlus 8 will start at £599 for the base version, with increments of £100 for each tier up. In other words, you'll pay £699 for the OnePlus 8 with 12GB of RAM, £799 for the base OnePlus 8 Pro, and £899 for the OnePlus 8 Pro with 12GB of RAM.
Other than that, both devices are broadly similar. The Pro has a larger and better 6.78-inch 120Hz display, while the regular 8 has a smaller but still smooth 6.55-inch 90Hz display. Their RAM and processors are more or less the same, and OnePlus has equipped both with large cameras (albeit with a quad-camera system for the pro and a triple for the regular.)
Spec sheets don't always tell the full story. It's likely still worth watching the event to see how OnePlus positions these devices.

How does Samsung's S Pen work so damn well?
There are other reasons to want a Galaxy Note, but if you want a good stylus experience, it's really the only phone that has one. That's because Samsung has made the S Pen part of the phone through both hardware and software.
Your OnePlus 8 Pro deserves only the best screen protectors
We love the OnePlus 8 Pro, especially its 120Hz AMOLED display. A screen protector is installed on the phone out of the box, but if you find yourself needing a new one, here's what we recommend buying.
