OnePlus has a habit of increasing prices of its new smartphones every year. What started as a journey with OnePlus One at $299 or Rs. 21,999 in India has now become Rs. 37,999 for the OnePlus 5. That said, OnePlus has confirmed the arrival of the OnePlus 5T on November 16, and several OnePlus fans are worried about the price of the smartphone.
Already OnePlus is selling the 8GB RAM version of the OnePlus 5 at Rs. 37,999 and if the company continues its tradition, the OnePlus 5T might touch the Rs. 40,000 barrier. However, that’s not the case says TechRadar UK. As per the publication, the company has seen a confidential document of OnePlus 5T, which thankfully also has the price of the device.
And guess what, the price of the upcoming 5T will remain the same as the OnePlus 5, at least in the UK. However, the price might remain the same in India as well. Having said that, the company might stop selling the popular OnePlus 5 after unveiling the OnePlus 5T because of the same price tag.
Last year, OnePlus increase the price of the OnePlus 3T compared to OnePlus 3, which is the reason why it sold the smartphone even after officially announcing the 3T. Also, the report cites that the 5T will arrive in two storage options- 64GB and 128GB like the OnePlus 5.
If OnePlus keeps the price at Rs. 32,999 in India, it would be a great smartphone, but sadly, the OnePlus 5 owners will feel a bit sad. The OnePlus 5T is coming on November 21 to India via a special preview sale, and it’s an Amazon exclusive too.
OnePlus officially confirmed an 18:9 display for the OnePlus 5T and they’re even retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack. Further, as per few reports, the 5T will feature the same Snapdragon 835 SoC, dual rear cameras, same design. There might a 20MP front-facing camera on the 5T to appeal selfie enthusiasts out there.
