    You forget the 8 will be 5G. That adds about €100.

    This is my take. OnePlus are supposedly offering 3 phones in the 8 series. The regular 8, the pro model and I'm sure iv read, but could be wrong a lite model. If guess the regular 8 will follow OnePlus strategy of flagship specs but a lower price. However it'll be missing a few flagship bits and pieces such as wireless chargimg, official ip rating, smaller screen, HD oy with a 90 instead of 120hz screen . Then the lite model might be more in line with the regular model we had last year. Then the pro model is the all singing, all dancing model
    Now I can remember people whinging and moaning last year that OnePlus phones didn't have wireless charging or official IP rating etc etc. So they've added it this year like people wanted. Well all this costs! I suppose we can't expect the price not to go up. Plus that damn snapdragon 865 chip is super expensive this year as well as the 5g antennas etc. So the extra 200 is probably about right as much as I hate to admit it. I don't know whether OnePlus are big enough or established enough yet though to be at the top end of the marker. We will have to wait and see I guess.

    one plus has evolved a long way. From introducing a killer phone ages back in the form of one plus one to launching the futuristic one plus 8.

    All the best for the launch of a very high end premium phone !!!

    And to think that I paid 390e for OP7 8/256GB. Those prices are way too high and 5G is totally not needed this year. OP8 is going to be a marginal upgrade from OP7T and downgrade against OP7T Pro which is the same price! Looking at Xiaomi's prices that skyrocketed this year, no wonder others are doing the same. Unfortunately timing is really bad so I don't predict huge sales just as it was with Samsung S20. Additionally they made 8Pro even bigger/longer so definitely no buy for me

    A lot of the additional cost with the one ple 8 Pro is the inclusion of wireless charging, an official IP rating, 5g antenna and that snapdragon 865 chip whixh is very expensive this year. Tbh if have not been bothered with the wireless charging or IP rating. But OnePlus in fairness to them are only giving what Tons of people were complaining about not having. If saybthe additional 200 is probably on par with the additions they've added.
    It's not good, I don't like it, it goes against what OnePlus used to stand for. But it is what it is.
    IV complained and threathened not to get one. But the more I thought about it the more I thought well its still cheaper than Samsung and apple. Iv sold my galaxy S20 ultra which I was totally underwhelmed with. I'm lucky that iv made enough to get the pro model.
    But I guess, we, the community have to shoulder some of the blame for the increased price for demanding unnecessary extras like wireless charging that all costs.
