OnePlus is all set to introduce its next flagship, the OnePlus 6T on October 30th. And in the meantime, the rumors mills have kept themselves busy by taking the wraps off nearly every single detail. Today, we’ve another such critical piece of information — the price. As per a leak by MySmartPrice, the OnePlus 6T will be significantly more expensive than its predecessor which might ruffle a few features considering how casually the company has been raising prices lately.
In India, the OnePlus 6T’s base variant, which will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, will reportedly cost Rs 37,999. The one with 8GB RAM and 128GB is expected to be priced at Rs 40,999 and the highest end model that will have 8GB RAM, 256GB storage to cost Rs 44,999. While it is worth noting that the starting option now has 128GB storage instead of 64GB, a bump up of Rs 3,000 from the OnePlus 6 will be a little difficult to justify considering there won’t be a ton of major changes. The OnePlus 6T is already available for preorder on Amazon India and will launch here on October 31st.
The OnePlus 6T’s biggest highlight will be the fingerprint sensor which has been relocated inside the display from the rear. In addition, the phone will feature a narrower notch on the front and ditch the standard headphone jack. Apart from that, it will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a larger 3700mAh battery. OnePlus is also promising a handful of software overhauls with a new interface and system-wide redesign. It remains to be seen whether it will be launched with Android Pie.
