If its price is going to be 40000 then it will not be good price as oneplus is a affordable chinese brand and not samsung or google which can tag its phone with any amount. People will not buy this as it will not be value proposition. Base model should be in line of 32000-34000 mid 34000-38000 and top model 38000-40000.
