You can get a OnePlus 8 for just $ 299 today

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8T are a bit old at this point as they both came out in 2020 and it’s almost 2022, but the phones are still fast by modern flagship standards. According to the rumor mill, the OnePlus 10 series is due out soon, which probably means OnePlus would like to dump its stock of older devices. Maybe that’s why the OnePlus 8 is on sale again for $ 299, which is the same discount we saw earlier this month.

The OnePlus 8 has a 6.55-inch 90Hz AMOLED display, three rear cameras (one main, one ultra-wide, and one macro), Snapdragon 865 chipset, 8 to 12 GB of RAM, 128 to 256 GB of storage, a 4,300 mAh battery and 30 W wired charging (or 15 W when using USB Power Delivery chargers). OnePlus initially promised only two major operating system updates, Android 11 and Android 12, but the company said in July that it would get one additional major operating system update (presumably Android 13 ). However, you might be expecting a bit from OxygenOS 12, given the current issues with the OnePlus 9 series update.

    This phone is a bit old, but its Snapdragon 865 and 90Hz display is still super smooth.

The main issue with this sale is that OnePlus only has the T-Mobile versions of the OnePlus 8T in stock, not the carrier unlocked models. This means that you must be a T-Mobile customer, or at least a T-Mobile customer long enough to request an unlock code. Both “Interstellar Glow” and “Onyx Black” models are in stock (at the time of writing), both in the entry-level 8GB RAM / 128GB storage configuration. Only the color “Ice Green” »Is not available and no options in the 12GB RAM / 256GB storage are in stock.
