OnePlus is upping its prices by £50 to £200. Thanks to UK retailer listings that went live early, we know that the OnePlus 8 will start at £599, £50 more than the OnePlus 7T. Want 256 GB with your OnePlus 8 Pro? Well, that'll cost you £899, £200 more than it did for the OnePlus 7T Pro.

The OnePlus 8 series is but hours away from its official launch, but one UK retailer has published its listings early. Brought to our attention by GSMArena, the OnePlus 8 series is live on John Lewis, confirming UK pricing for several SKUs.

While we are expecting OnePlus to sell the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro in three colours, John Lewis is currently offering just Onyx Black and Glacial Green for both devices. According to the listings, the OnePlus 8 will start at £599, £50 more expensive than the OnePlus 7T. The Pro series has received a £100 hike though, with the cheapest OnePlus 8 Pro coming in at £799.

However, that is not the full story. OnePlus will also be selling a 256 GB version of its cheaper handset, which will cost £699. On the one hand, this means that the OnePlus 8 can cost as much as the OnePlus 7T Pro. On the other hand, it means that you will not be paying any more for a new OnePlus smartphone with 256 GB of storage than you would have done previously.

The entry-level Pro model now only comes with 128 GB of storage though, despite costing £100 more than the OnePlus 7T Pro. A 256 GB Pro model will set you back £899, £200 more than it would have done previously.

OnePlus remains more affordable than its competitors, with a 128 GB Galaxy S20 Plus retailing for £999. Upping your prices from between £50 to £200 in six months is quite the jump though, whichever way you look at it.
