OnePlus has released a new promo video for its latest flagship phone in Asia, starring actor Robert Downey Jr. The video showcases some of the phone's most impressive features, including the 120Hz display and 30W wireless charging.
OnePlus finally revealed India pricing for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, and both devices are launching at heavily discounted prices when seen against their U.S. counterparts. The OnePlus 8 starts off at just ₹41,999 ($550), and the OnePlus 8 Pro is available in the country for ₹54,999 ($720).
The very first software update for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro brings camera optimizations, fingerprint sensor enhancements, and a few new features. Unfortunately, however, the update doesn’t come with the latest April 2020 Android security patch.
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are now official in China, and both devices cost considerably less than their U.S. equivalents. The base variant of the OnePlus 8 starts off at the equivalent of $565, with the Pro version retailing for $765.
It's hard to have a conversation about the OnePlus 8 without discussing price. OnePlus should have done all it could to keep the price down, and the easiest move would've been to use a Snapdragon 765 instead.
