On October 30, OnePlus will unveil its second flagship of this year, the OnePlus 6T. The expectations are huge with the 6T as we all know that the OnePlus 6 is still one of the best flagships you can buy at half the price of the Galaxy Note 9 or the Pixel 3. We already know a lot about the 6T, thanks to all the leaks and the official teasers. Recently, a trusted source revealed the pricing of the phone for the Indian market.
With the upcoming 6T having features like an in-screen fingerprint scanner, it is pretty normal to expect the base variant to be priced higher than the starting price of OnePlus 6. We have seen the company launching its flagships with 64GB storage for the base variant. But, with the OnePlus 6T, we will see the base variant having 128GB storage. The company has probably taken this step to justify the starting price of Rs 37,999 ($515) for the phone.
FYI, the base variant of the OnePlus 6 with 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM was launched in India at a price of Rs 34,999. It is good to see the base variant launching with 128GB storage. Talking about other variants of the OnePlus 6T, the 8GB + 128GB variant is going to be priced at Rs 40,999 ($556) and the 8GB + 256GB variant at Rs 44,999 ($610).
In case you don’t know, the OnePlus 6T has a waterdrop notch, in-screen fingerprint scanner, no headphone jack, no IP rating, dual cameras, 3,700mAh battery with Fast Charging and more. So, what are your views on this constant increase in the pricing of its flagships every year by OnePlus? So let us know via the comments section.
