How to buy the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus has announced two new phones, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. They both have fast refreshing displays, and in the case of the OnePlus 8 Pro, you’ll be getting the first OnePlus phone that supports wireless charging. Both Verizon and T-Mobile will also sell the OnePlus 8 in stores and online. You’ll be able to purchase this model and the OnePlus 8 Pro through Amazon (links are not live just yet) and OnePlus.com.

If you want to learn more about each phone, The Verge’s Dieter Bohn and Jon Porter have published full reviews for both devices and you can read them through the links above. If you’re ready to buy, head below to see how and when you can get your hands on the OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro.

HOW TO BUY THE ONEPLUS 8
As mentioned above, the OnePlus 8 is being sold through Verizon for the first time, as well as at T-Mobile. Each carrier offers exclusive colors.

For those who don’t want the OnePlus 8 through a carrier, OnePlus.com and Amazon will sell the phone starting on Wednesday, April 29th. Both retailers offer the same two configurations:

The glacial green model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $699 (OnePlus.com)
The interstellar glow model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $799 (OnePlus.com)
Verizon will start selling the OnePlus 8 on April 29th, offering the onyx black version of the phone, as well as a Verizon-exclusive polar silver-colored option. It’s calling this phone the “OnePlus 8 5G UW,” so it will work on Verizon’s ultra wideband 5G network. It’s offering this model for $33.33 per month for 24 months. This monthly price will net you the model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

T-Mobile will sell the OnePlus 8 starting April 29th, as well. The interstellar glow color is a carrier-exclusive option only available at T-Mobile. It hasn’t announced pricing just yet. Also, like Verizon, it’s adding 5G to the name.

HOW TO BUY THE ONEPLUS 8 PRO
The OnePlus 8 Pro will work on T-Mobile and Verizon, though the carriers aren’t selling this one. This high-end version will be sold only through OnePlus.com and Amazon, and directly through OnePlus, you can get it a week ahead of the cheaper OnePlus 8.

Starting on Wednesday, April 22nd, OnePlus.com will offer the OnePlus 8 Pro in three colors: glacial green, onyx black, and ultramarine blue. All three colors will be available in two configurations: 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage for $899 or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $999.

Amazon will begin selling the phone the following Wednesday, April 29th. Currently, only the glacial green model will be available in the $899 configuration with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The other two will cost $999.
