Latest OnePlus 6 leak reveals India price for 64GB, 128GB models
As we inch closer to the official launch of OnePlus 6, more new details of the smartphone have emerged online. The latest leak reveals possibly the most important bit of information for the OnePlus 6 - price.
According to a report by a website TrueTech, OnePlus 6 with 64GB storage will be priced at ₹36,999. As for the second variant with 128GB storage, the listing suggests it will retail at ₹39,999. If true, OnePlus 6 is going to be the most expensive OnePlus smartphone thus far. That said, it will be still under ₹40,000, which means it is still cheaper than the premium phones like Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X.
At the moment, there's no word on the pricing for 256GB model and the Avengers Edition-themed model of OnePlus 6. Based on the latest leak, these two models may be more expensive.
OnePlus has been increasing the price of its smartphones with each launch and this price bracket does seem believeable. For instance, OnePlus 5T launched in India at ₹32,999 for the base model while the 8GB RAM plus 128GB storage model is priced at ₹37,999.
However, without any official confirmation it's better not to assume that this would be the final price.
