OnePlus 6 will reportedly start in India at a price of Rs 36,999 for 64GB storage model, while 128GB storage model will cost Rs 39,999. A report in True-Tech.net, which quotes “reliable and verified source” has leaked the India pricing of OnePlus 6 ahead of global launch on May 16 in London. This is not the first report which has leaked the prices of the upcoming OnePlus 6 smartphone.
OnePlus 6 will make a debut in India on May 17 and the company is hosting an event in Mumbai. Though 256GB storage version for the phone has also been confirmed, the site does not mention the pricing of the high-end model. According to the report, OnePlus 6 256GB storage option could launch alongside the other two storage models or later this year.
A Rs 36,999 starting price means OnePlus 6 will be more expensive than its predecessor the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, which had a starting price of Rs 32,999. The 8GB RAM and 128GB version of the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T was priced at Rs 37,999 in India. Earlier reports have claimed the 256GB version could cross the Rs 44,000 price mark, making it the most expensive OnePlus smartphone ever launched in the Indian market.
OnePlus 6 will be made official soon and we already know quite a few things about the upcoming flagship, thanks to leaks and rumours. OnePlus itself has confirmed several features of OnePlus ahead of official launch. As for pricing, a report in GizmoChina had previously pointed out that OnePlus 6 will be the company’s most expensive smartphone yet, though it will still be accessible when compared to Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X. The 256GB storage model of OnePlus 6 is expected to cost Yuan 4399, which is around Rs 45,416 on conversion.
Coming to specifications, OnePlus will have a Full View display with an iPhone X-like notch on top of the screen. Another big change will be an all-glass body design and a glass back, compared to a metal unibody design on its predecessor.
The phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM+64GB/128GB storage and 8GB RAM+256GB storage.
