While the OnePlus 6 launch is just round the corner, yet another leak has emerged online that revealed the price and key specifications of the smartphone. The Chinese smartphone maker is gearing up to unveil its next-gen flagship in Q2 this year.
The new leak suggest that OnePlus 6 will enter the ranks of the premium flagships with the new pricing strategy. This also means that OnePlus 6 will be the company’s most expensive smartphone yet.
Besides the pricing, the leak suggested that the new smartphone will also have a 256GB inbuilt storage variant. It also suggest a dual camera setup with 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors on the back of the phone.
As per CNMO report citing a leaked screentshot, the OnePlus 6 price will be US $749 (roughly Rs. 48,800). However, a closer look at the image also shows that the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9+ prices as $1,517 and $1,200, respectively; these prices are higher than what the two models cost in the US. However, these correspond to the Canadian prices of the two smartphones, suggesting the $749 price tag is for the Canada market, and not the US. This translates to roughly US $575 (roughly Rs. 38,000, plus applicable duties), which is higher than the $559 (Rs. 37,999 in India) price tag for the OnePlus 5T 8GB RAM variant.
While in terms of specifications, the image revealed that OnePlus 6 will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB inbuilt storage, Dash Charge support, a 6.2-inch display, and a 3D glass back design. Moreover, the screenshot also revealed that cost of the phone’s 8GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant will be $749 (roughly Rs. 48,800). So it is expected that the smartphone would run on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, with an impending Android P sometime later this year or in early 2019.
