OnePlus’ highly anticipated flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7 will be the company’s most expensive flagship yet. Market research firm techARC has claimed the base variant of the upcoming OnePlus 7 may be priced just under INR 40,000 in the Indian market. Last year, OnePlus introduced the OnePlus 6 at a starting price of INR 34,999 in the country.
OnePlus 7 to Start Around INR 40,000 in India
A study carried out by the market research firm found that OnePlus has increased the price of its flagship phone by 12.6 percent on an average. This means the OnePlus 7 will start at somewhere between INR 37,000 to INR 39,500. OnePlus’ current flagship model, the OnePlus 6T was launched in India at a starting price of INR 37,999. So it certainly makes sense that the upcoming OnePlus 7 will be priced closer to the INR 40,000 mark. As most of you may be aware, OnePlus is also going to launch the OnePlus 7 Pro this year. The OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to be more impressive than the standard OnePlus 7 in terms of hardware specs, which means the Pro model will likely start somewhere around INR 45,000 in India.
The study also found that the Samsung Galaxy S series saw the lowest increase in pricing at just eight percent. Apple iPhones, in comparison, witnessed a price rise of 20 percent with each new addition. Google’s Pixel series has seen an 11.7% increase in pricing with new edition launches.
