L.O.R.D, 20 Apr 2020All these people in Western regions complaining about price difference. Guys y'all have averag... moreI can't buy It, my price range Rs 15000-20000 max. Even I have that kinda cash for a phone, I would buy a phone like Poco X2 and spend the rest on my Gaming Rig.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020I think I will just buy the Indian Pro 12gb variant then IF the hardware specs or the same or ... moreAll Indian phones are in English by default, I've never used Hindi in a smartphone or feature phone. There are millions of people in India who do not speak English but use the phone in English. Hindi wasn't even an option on an android phone a few years ago. When Hindi and Regional Languages came to Android it was a nice and useful thing for the people who don't know English, like in rural areas or people who do not get enough education.
So you can buy an Indian variant if possible, it'll be the same as Global variant, just check the 4g/5g bands.
Mr PubgMobile, 20 Apr 2020I live in Canada and I agree with you....Ya... What if ask u about iphone.. we been paying 25% to 35% more for that.... iphone then u

OwnFix3, 19 Apr 2020SE isn't launched yet. The pricing was just an organic estimate.Nope...its not an estimate...Apple published Indian prices of iPhone SE on the same day when the phone was launched on their website apple.in...!
OwnFix3, 19 Apr 2020SE isn't launched yet. The pricing was just an organic estimate.42000 is the official price announced by apple.
You have no idea what you talking about do you?
More expensive in the US? Lmao at that price point people are going to get iPhones instead. As a matter of fact i've never seen any one using Oneplus devices over here in Canada its about 87% iPhones, 6% shitsung 5% xiaomi and 2% Huawei.
All these people in Western regions complaining about price difference. Guys y'all have average incomes and purchasing capacity far higher than most Indians. The phones are slightly cheaper there but I bet a lot of people there still can't afford it because of the time it takes for them to make that amount of money versus how quickly you guys do. It's not a direct comparison.
I envy the those prices.... really happy for you guys, here in Canada, i'll give you direct conversions, These are before tax prices, so depending what province we live in Canada, the prices will be higher.
Oneplus 8 Pro 12GB 256GB is $1549.00 = 84,405 inr
Oneplus 8 Pro 8GB 128GB is $1399.00 = 76,231 inr
Oneplus 8 12GB 256GB is $1249.00 = 68,058 inr
Oneplus 8 8GB 128GB is $1099.00 = 59,884 inr
Good price though there is no OP official release in my country so I have to rely on resellers here. Wonder how much they will jack up the price for this.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020Is it 5G though or typical LTE?All SD865 based phones are 5G, and 5G only. You have no options to make a pure 4G phone based on SD865.
Easy recommendation over the S20 Plus which costs around 250 dollars more for the base variant.
I though the 8 pro would be above 65k for base variant.
OnePlus really hitting a home run here.
Regular OnePlus 8 is just a bad sell at that price. Better phones available at that price range.
.alpha, 20 Apr 2020How to order phone from India and ship to US?If you are in US, I think you should wait for deals offered by your carriers. There will be deals that are better than the Indian price, especially if you are interested in more than one phone, e.g., Buy one Get one deals, etc. You get better post-sale service that way.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2020India, china and europe should ban apple by your logic then.... iPhone Se is 399 in US and 550... moreI second that. People makimg noise for them being cheaper in India but they don't realize how expensive are Iphones here. The case for the newest IPhone SE is the latest proof
I wonder whether the OnePlus 8 Series phones destined for India actually has a 5G receiver. Considering the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) in India has only recently earmarked 300 MHz in the mid-band spectrum of the 3.3 to 3.6 GHz range for 5G.
It may very well be that the reduction in the retail price of the 8 series in India is due to the simpler manufacture of 4G phones without the complexity of the 5G internal antenna.
Note this is not a stated fact, but rather my postulation to account for the significant price differential in India as compared to the US/UK/EU.
