It’s been more than a month since Digital Walker shared the prices of OnePlus’ latest flagship series in the Philippines. But the availability? We were left hanging.
Now, we finally have an update from the smartphone brand’s exclusive distributor in the country.
According to Digital Walker, the wait is almost over; they are expecting to sell the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro around mid-June 2020.
The original plan was to join the worldwide launch of the handsets, but because of the lockdown measures implemented in the Philippines to prevent the spread of COVID-19, they were not able to do so.
“We had the option of bringing in the [OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro] without having the proper documentation and certifications, but that would have been a disservice to the OnePlus community,” Digital Walker explained.
You can read their full statement below.
At least we can look forward to the special preorder bundles any moment now. For those of you who missed the local-price announcement in April, here’s a recap:
- OnePlus 8
- 8GB RAM (LPDDR4X)/128GB storage, Glacial Green color: P35,990 ($709)
- OnePlus 8 Pro
- 8GB RAM (LPDDR5)/128GB storage, Glacial Green color: P45,990 ($906)
- 12GB RAM (LPDDR5)/256GB storage, Onyx Black and Ultramarine Blue colors: P48,990 ($965)
