Analyst takes a guess at the OnePlus 5's price, a dubious poster shows the phone's release date
OnePlus is well-known to sell its handsets at bargain prices (considering their class), but every year, the new flagship model costs a bit more than the last. Rumors keep saying that the OnePlus 5 will, indeed, be more expensive than the OnePlus 3T and an analyst has taken a stab at guessing just how much it will cost.
Pan Jiutang, a known analyst, claims that the OnePlus 5's price tag will be around the ¥3,000 mark ($444). Of course, this is the price for China — we assume that it would translate to something like $480 for the US market, judging by current handset pricings.
If that seems a bit steep for a OnePlus device, don't worry — the report suggests that this is the price for a "higher configuration" variant — probably one that has 128 GB of storage. Since this is just an analyst's best guess, we'd say you should take it with a grain of salt, but looking back at how OnePlus handsets have been priced throughout the years, we'd say the guess is very much a possibility.
