- OnePlus 6 is coming with Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.1
- OnePlus 6 base model price is said start at Rs 36,666 in India
OnePlus is slated to host a local launch event for OnePlus 6 in India on May 17, but before the company could officially announce the device, price details have surfaced online.
True Tech blog citing reliable sources has claimed that the upcoming Android flagship OnePlus 6 will be much costlier than any previous OnePlus phones. The predecessor OnePlus 5T base model (6GB RAM+ 64GB) costs Rs 33,999, but its successor with the same configuration is said to be priced Rs 36,999.
And the second top-end model (with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage) is expected to set you back by Rs 39,999. There is no word on the third OnePlus 6 variant (8GB RAM + 256GB storage), but going by the aforementioned price pattern, it is most likely to be priced Rs 42,999.
Also, it is going to be interesting to see how much the company will price the special OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers edition. If we had to guess, it will be priced around Rs 44,000.
The price of the OnePlus 6 series is very high, but on the bright side, it is still very low compared to rival brands such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 (&S9+) and Apple iPhone X, among others.
So far, OnePlus has not made comments on the speculations. We believe it is a matter of time for the company to announce at least price range of the OnePlus 6, as it has done in the past. The company had run a full-page ad on paper with price details of the OnePlus 3 before the formal launch.
