OnePlus 8 5G UW Highlights and Overview

The OnePlus 8 5G UW is a Verizon version of the vanilla OnePlus 8. If you’re buying a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro from Amazon or from OnePlus dot com, you’ll get a device with an X55 5G modem. That modem has support for sub-6 5G connectivity, both low and mid-band coverage, worldwide. That’s the more general everyone-uses-it sort of 5G connectivity.

If you get the Verizon OnePlus 8 5G UW, you’re getting a device that has the low, mid, and high-band coverage in one device. That’s all sub-6 and mmWave 5G, all in one device. There is currently no such coverage in a OnePlus 8 Pro device, only the non-pro from Verizon.

This version of the device looks basically the same as the standard OnePlus 8, but it has a Verizon-branded 5G logo on its back. Also, in the right conditions, it’ll go very fast.

Verizon’s version of the device is available in Onyx Black and Verizon-exclusive Polar Silver. These devices will be available for order from Verizon starting on April 29, 2020, for $33.33 a month for 24 months on Verizon Device Payment (0% APR; $799.99 retail).
