Even though OnePlus has been controversies related to Benchmark scores, there is a never a doubt that it is always the best-spec smartphone money can buy.
It all boils down to one thing, the price. The whole existence of a smartphone maker like OnePlus is based on how they captured the market with the best price to power ratio. From their early days, the company has been known to be the Flagship Killer thanks to selling Flagship specced phones for half the price. Hence to continue the loyalty and brand ethos, OnePlus has to price the OP6 effectively.
That is the only way to retain the badge of Flagship Killer. Even though, OnePlus devices were always higher specs than the flagship devices. It usually lacked one or two features like Water Resistance (IP 67) rating or Wireless Charging. But not this time! The OnePlus is confirmed to have Water Resistance and will most likely have Wireless Charging as it gets a Glass back.
From what we have heard, the pricing for the 3 variants would be –
64GB – 34,999/-
128GB – 39,300/-
256GB – 45,600/-
The above-mentioned pricing for each variant is a conversion from their respective Chinese pricing.
