OnePlus 8 phones can be expensive, but they will certainly be popular – CEO Pete Lau announced that all 8 editions have been sold in China. Demand exceeds company expectations.
Even OnePlus 8 Pro, priced at CNY 6,000 (almost $ 800), is gone. The Pro model with 8/128 GB of memory turned out to be the most requested version, not that we would be surprised. Even though OnePlus 8 is less attractive, it has proven to be very popular and has also been sold.
“Thank you for your support and understanding. We will continue selling and shipping as soon as possible,” Lau said.
He added that OnePlus will focus on meeting domestic demand by shifting its production capacity from units intended for international sales to phones that go to Chinese retailers.
However, this will not affect the presence of the western market. We just checked it out and the OnePlus Europe subpage reports delivery times around 3-4 days. In addition, the start in North America is scheduled for the 29th, which takes place next Wednesday (initially Pro will begin on April 22).
