OnePlus is known for offering excellent smartphones at affordable prices. The new OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro continue that tradition. Both newly introduced phones will go on sale on April 29 and if you're wondering how to order the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, you've come to the right place. 

The OnePlus 8 (from $699) will be sold through Verizon and T-Mobile, whereas its bigger sibling the OnePlus 8 Pro (from $899) will only be sold unlocked. It's worth noting that only the Verizon OnePlus 8 will support millimeter-wave 5G. All other models will be limited to sub-6GHz. As a result, the Verizon model will cost $799. 

In addition to OnePlus' online store, shoppers will also be able to buy the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro from Amazon. (We expect to see some Amazon promotions as we get closer to the phone's release date). 

How to order the OnePlus 8 at Verizon

The OnePlus 8 5G Ultra Wideband is a customized version of the OnePlus 8 that's built to run on Verizon's 5G network. The phone supports Verizon's ultra-fast millimeter wave (mmW) data speeds, with speeds that can surpass 1 Gbps. As a result, the phone will cost $100 more, so you'll pay $799 for the base model. (The unlocked OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro models will not support Verizon's 5G network). 

Fortunately, Verizon is already offering a deal. Switch to a Verizon Unlimited plan and save up to $700 when you upgrade to a OnePlus 8 5G UW and trade-in your existing phone. (This deal is only valid for customers switching from a competing network). You'll also get a free Amazon Echo Dot, free smart plug, and free Stream TV. T

his is the first time that Verizon has offered a OnePlus device. Verizon will  offer the phone in Onyx Black or an exclusive Polar Silver.
