OnePlus 5 is one of the most awaited Android smartphone, not only in India but the world. The company has been teasing the phone quite often on their social media platforms. Recently Carl Pei also visited Bangalore office of the company to discuss future plans of the OnePlus 5 in India. OnePlus 5 will be unveiled globally on June 20th and in India the official launch will happen on June 22.
But, the biggest question is what will the OnePlus 5 be priced at? According to our sources, the OnePlus 5 will be slightly expensive than the current flagship phone OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 5 will be an Amazon exclusive in India and the 6GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant of the device will be priced at in India. That’s approximate $512.
There is also a confirmation that the company will also be launching an 8GB RAM phone with 128GB storage on Amazon and it will be priced below Rs 35,000. Our best guess is that the OnePlus will price the 8GB RAM version at Rs 34,999. Some websites also suggest that the higher version of the OnePlus 5 will cost Rs 37,999.
Recently OnePlus had already teased the look of the OnePlus 5 on Twitter and showed that it will be sporting a dual-camera setup. The pricing seems very competitive still for OnePlus 5. As the option of good phones in the price bracket of Rs 30-40K is very less, OnePlus always had a competitive advantage over many phones in India.
OnePlus 5 at Rs 32,999 will also face a tough competition from Honor’s new phone that’s also expected to launch a week after the OnePlus 5. Honor 8 Pro will also be sporting a dual-camera setup and the price on the Honor 8 Pro is expected to be less than OnePlus 5.
Unlike what rumour mills suggested, there is a horizontal dual camera setup on the OnePlus 5 and not a vertical one. The Chinese smartphone maker has been focussing on the camera, which is evident from the official image. Other rumoured specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 5 include a 5.5-inch display, a 23MP primary camera and a 16MP front snapper. It is expected to pack in a 4,000mAh battery.
