OnePlus finally launched its latest flagship smartphones – OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro through an online-only event last night. Traditionally, OnePlus hosts pop-up events across the world after its launches, which allows fans to get their hands on the new smartphones along with several OnePlus goodies. However, with the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing social distancing protocols in various countries, the brand has decided to conduct its pop-up events online. This will allow fans to get their hands on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro before it goes on sale, along with several new accessories in the box. The pop-up events are restricted to Europe as of now, but we wouldn’t be surprised if OnePlus brings them to India as well. If you’re wondering what you get inside the OnePlus 8 series pop-up box, here are all the details.
OnePlus 8 series Pop-up Box contents
The Pop-up Boxes are available for both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, in both 8GB + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB configurations. As for the colour variants on offer, only the Onyx Black and Glacial Green options have been listed on OnePlus’ UK site. The all-new Interstellar Glow and Ultramarine Blue colour variants don’t seem to be part of the Pop-up Box, but this could change for other markets. Apart from your choice of device, OnePlus is offering the latest OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z earphones and a couple of protective cases. While both phones come with a new Sandstone case in a Cyan paint job, the OnePlus 8 comes with an additional Nylon Bumper case, while the 8 Pro features a Karbon Bumper case. Other box contents remain the same as regular retail units, including a transparent case with Never Settle branding, Warp Charge 30 power adapter and Type-C cable.
