    OnePlus says it is because of the pandemic, which I am sure is the reason why they are taking forever to restock. The supply chains is majorly constrained for parts. But that does not explain why the 8 has been in stock basically every where and 8 Pro is out of stock every where.

    That indicates they made wayyyy more standard 8 than the 8 Pro because they thought for the OnePlus enthusiast community would want to buy the standard 8 more cause it was the "flagship killer" price.

    Boy were they so very wrong. Most of the OnePlus enthusiast community wants the 8 pro. They clearly don't know their user base very well.

    OnePlus aren't stupid they would have done their research before launching selling the 8 series. They didn't make way more regular OnePlus 8 as you say, they anticipated that the OnePlus 8 Pro would sell more.

    But at the same time OnePlus didn't expect the demand for the more expensive OnePlus 8 Pro to be so high during this unforseen global pandemic with the economy going downhill.

    Tons of people have lost jobs or had their income reduced greatly so OnePlus aren't going to manufacture too many phones in bulk. Until the economy gets back on its feet and the demand for smartphones rises to previous levels.

    Question to the Staff-Members:
    Will the Black 8 Pro come to Europe in the 12GB version?

    @David S.
    Ultramarine Blue is considered a limited Edition and will be making a special appearance for the first Flash Sale this Thursday 28th of May in all markets where it initially launched.
    it is already out of stock, any plans to include it again in future Flash Sales ?

    "Throughout the U.K. and U.S. green is thought to be somewhat of an unlucky color. Records of this superstition go back as late as the 1700s. It’s said that to wear the color green is to bring about death"

    There's a reason there's so few green phones ever produced for sale in the UK in the past. I can't think of any electronic item, or even household item which has sold well in green in the UK, hence it's a strange choice to only sell the Pro 8 256GB in green.[/QUOTE]🤷 I love it because it's the colour of my football team. V happy OP only sells the green version here [e]1f601[/e][e]1f601[/e].

    Yes, next week more!

    We can't control what Amazon shows, we don't have a 6GB version for any of the OnePlus 8 Series in Europe.

    Is there any information about US restock for the 8 pro? If there isn't would I be able to buy a UK/ Europe model and have it shipped over or will I run into service/ carrier problems?

    I would imagine the shipping costs ordering the OnePlus 8 Pro on Amazon UK & European store's would be quite high to America. Plus the UK/European models have different 4G and 5G bands so you might not get good carrier speeds.

    Heres the UK/European OnePlus 8 Pro LTE 4G & NR 5G bands -

    And here's the USA OnePlus 8 Pro LTE 4G & NR 5G bands -

    I would suggest doing thorough research before committing to that sort of thing. I did the other way round when they first came out (bought a blue 8 pro from the US in the launch event and had it shipped to the UK). It initially appeared to work fine but then for some reason didn't make and receive calls reliably so I ended up having to ship it back. The whole thing ended up quite pricey for the two sets of shipping (entirely my fault of course).

    How can they do their research? They have never released both a Pro and Standard version at the same time in the same country. At least not in the United States or Canada before.

    There is some UK versions for sale on eBay. So yes they do ship over here from eBay sellers but you will be paying a premium. You will be missing a couple bands if you get the UK version, as someone already demonstrated from posting the list of bands.
