OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro pre-orders sold out at OnePlus within minutes which means the new flagships will be hard to find for a few days.
Earlier today, OnePlus put its highly anticipated flagships, the new OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, up for pre-order on its website. The company offered a very enticing launch day bundle with a free pair of $50 headphones and a Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger which normally retails for $70.
Apparently the phones, and bundle, were hard to resist as the company sold out of its entire “limited” launch stock just minutes after orders went live.
As of right now, all OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro models are sold out (that includes all colors and storage options) through the company’s website and we don’t anticipate them returning until their release dates later this month.
It’s unclear how much stock OnePlus had on hand for these limited pre-orders, but it’s clear there’s quite a bit of demand for these phones so we could see stock issues plague these devices later on this month.
If you missed out this morning and you want to pickup a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro in April, you’ll have a few options at your disposal and we want to run all of those down in this guide.
How to Find the OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro in Stock
OnePlus plans to launch the OnePlus 8 Pro first. The company says it plans to release the OnePlus 8 Pro on its store starting Wednesday April 22nd. Again, we don’t know how much stock it will have on hand.
We do know that it will sell all three colors (glacial green, onyx black, and ultramarine blue) in both configurations (8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage for $899 and 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $999).
As for the cheaper OnePlus 8, OnePlus and Amazon will start selling it on April 29th. Both OnePlus and Amazon will sell the phone in same two configurations: Glacial green with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for $699 and Interstellar glow with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $799.
If you want to be notified when OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro stock is available on OnePlus’ website, you’ll want to head to the landing page for the model you want and click the big red “Notify Me” button in the bottom right corner. From there, you’ll need to input your email address.
When the product you’ve selected is available for immediate shipping, you should get an email from OnePlus.
Verizon & T-Mobile
Again, while the OnePlus 8 Pro will work on T-Mobile and Verizon, the carriers won’t sell it. However, they will both sell the OnePlus 8.
Verizon says it will start selling the OnePlus 8 on April 29th. It will offer the onyx black version of the phone and Verizon-exclusive: a polar silver-colored option.
Note that Verizon calls the phone OnePlus 8 5G UW. UW stands for “Ultra Wideband” which means it will work on the carrier’s ultra wideband 5G network
As for T-Mobile, it will also start selling the phone on April 29th. It has the exclusive on the device’s interstellar glow color.
If you plan to purchase the OnePlus 8 through T-Mobile or Verizon, and you want your new phone ASAP, we recommend ordering as soon as the device goes live.
That said, a lot of listings will likely require you to pay a premium so choose wisely.
Pre-Order to Get the iPhone SE 2 ASAP
If you've been waiting for Apple to announce a new iPhone SE and you're sold on the upgrades the company's made to the budget iPhone, you'll want to put in an order in the near future.
We might not see every single iPhone SE 2 model sell out before the official release date, but we could see some shipping times slip across the board as the pre-order period progresses. Shipping times have already been pushed back into May at Apple.
If you put in an order ASAP you can expect your delivery on Friday, April 24th. If you wait, you might not get your phone until May.
If you buy your iPhone SE 2 via Apple, shipping is free.
