Indian pricing details for the OnePlus 6 have leaked once again giving more precise numbers for each storage variant. According to the report, the upcoming flagship will be available in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB – at a price of Rs. 36,999 ($558) and Rs. 39,999 ($603) respectively. In comparison, the OnePlus 5T Android smartphone was announced in the country at Rs. 32,999 ($497) and Rs. 37,999 ($573) for the same onboard storage options. The 256GB storage variant still remains to be a mystery, and OnePlus might possibly introduce the storage option at a later stage after the initial rollout of the OnePlus 6. If the provided prices turn out to be true, OnePlus 6 will be the first smartphone to cross the $500 barrier, pushing it further towards the premium segment.
The report goes on to cite its reliable source behind this information, which also provided the publication with pricing details of the OnePlus 5 prior to its launch mid-2017, which later proved to be correct. The Chinese company has confirmed to introduce its 2018 flagship on May 16 in London, followed by its announcement in India and China a day later. Alongside the standard variants, OnePlus 6 Avengers Limited Edition will also be announced in India on May 17 in partnership with Marvel Studios. Amazon India will be OnePlus’ exclusive retail partner in the Asian market and the OnePlus 6 will be available for purchase from the online retailer starting May 21 with its initial sales limited to Amazon Prime members.
OnePlus has already confirmed that its next flagship will sport Qualcomm’s top-tier Snapdragon 845 SoC paired with probably 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on the variant. It will reportedly feature a notched 6.28-inch display in a 19:9 aspect ratio and will also be water resistant. The Android flagship will feature a glass back which also indicates towards the presence of wireless charging capabilities, but OnePlus has yet to confirm that. A dual-camera setup will be present on the handset’s back with a recent report suggesting it to support “Super Slo Mo” camera mode, a feature seen recently on flagship smartphones from Samsung and Sony. The two cameras will now be placed in the center in a vertical orientation and will have a fingerprint scanner below them.
