Almost all major details of the OnePlus 5 are out, but what remain unclear are the pricing details of the OnePlus 3T successor.
Over the recent weeks, we have learned a lot about the specs, features and possible design of the OnePlus 5. We know that the phone will come with the most powerful Qualcomm processor in the shape of Snapdragon 835. We also know that this processor will be paired with a massive 8GB RAM, but this doesn’t rule out the fact that the phone could have a base model with 6GB RAM, same as last year’s OnePlus 3 and 3T.
It has also been rumored that OnePlus will join the dual-lens camera craze, but there are still uncertainties over the placement of this camera module. Nonetheless, latest leaks seem to be pointing towards an arrangement that is very similar to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Oppo R11 or Xiaomi Mi 6, just to name but a few.
Today, a report surfaced from Europe suggesting that the OnePlus 5 could be priced at €550, a price tag that could make the phone the company’s most expensive to date. While this price has not been confirmed whether it will be for the entry-level 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant or the high-end 8GB RAM and 128GB model, a new report surfacing from India seems to add more weight to this pricing detail.
Apparently, folks at TrueTech claim to have had exclusive access to OnePlus 5 pricing details for the Indian market. Where the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant will be valued at Rs 32,999, the 8GB RAM and 128GB variant will be priced at Rs 37,999.
When converted, these prices turn to about €460 and €530, respectively. As you can see, the latter is very close to the touted price tag for the European market, which could mean this alleged €550 price tag is for the high-end variant of OnePlus 5.
As usual with unconfirmed reports, take this one with a grain of salt. Since the company will unveil the new OnePlus 5 on June 20, it won’t be long before we find out the exact pricing details of the phone. Stay tuned.
