OnePlus 5 price could be €550 in Europe, $550 in the US

Less than two weeks before the premiere of the OnePlus 5, we already know quite a lot about its features, but its pricing is still unknown. Yet a clue may have just surfaced out of… the rules of a Facebook contest.

In spite of how odd the source may seem, just bear with us: it will all make sense in a minute. There's this upcoming music festival in Finland called Provinssi, and OnePlus is one of its sponsors. To promote the event, the Provinssi guys are currently hosting a Facebook contest where one can win two VIP passes (which normally cost 199 euro each) for the show plus a OnePlus 5 phone. According to the contest rules, the total value of the prize is 948 euro, and since 398 euro is what the two passes cost, it is easy to deduct that the OnePlus 5 is valued at 550 euro.

Of course, it would be too bold to claim that the OnePlus 5 will cost €550 in Europe – and therefore $550 in the US, judging by how the 3T costs $439 and €439 across the ocean – considering just the evidence above. The info actually runs counter to previous rumors about a price just below $500. On the other hand, it makes sense to assume that the OnePlus 5 would cost more than previous models. Just take a look at the trend: the OnePlus One started at $299, the OnePlus 2 launched at $329; the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T cost $399 and $439 - $479, respectively. Now, a OnePlus 5 breaking the $500 mark wouldn't come as a huge surprise, would it?

Lol, it's like $150 bucks cheaper. People shopping in that bracket aren't looking for bargains.

It's possible that the $550 is for the top end phone with the most storage. Remember, the OnePlus comes in various storage options and since this was for a contest it's possible they are giving away the top end storage model. Again, just a possibility.

I pay extra $100 & go for a real flagship instead of these Chinese hyped devices. Still OnePlus Customer Support is worst.

The Price is $650 USD and $600 with Pre-order. US prices at least. WIth that, you get headphones, case, 3.5mm USBC adapter. And QC quick charging. Not some stupid proprietary DASH charging. This is nothing but a beefed up Oppo R11.

DASH is 100 times better than Qualcomm QC... QC Heats up your phone/battery way more than DASH and what does that mean? Your battery degrades much faster. Not to mention DASH is still faster than QC and is safer for your phone. DASH should be implemented in every flagship

Dash Charge is miles faster than QC 3.0, especially with screen on. Do some research.

Go home troll! One plus makes solid flagships and you haven't even seen it yet.

If this is true than it's suicidal for one plus. I refused to buy a iphone chinese clone with this amount of money. I wonder what will their paid promoter MKBHD, wall street journal will say after this.

MKBHD isn't a paid promoter for oneplus, atleast not in his reviews. Stop spreading trash.

Yeah, right. He just picked a unknown A Chinese brand, doing unboxing, reviewing, doing camera review for the company since the first one plus just for free. Even though nobody heard the company's name before One plus quickly grab tech world attention mostly because mkbhd and vox media which mkbhd was associate at that time. He did it for free ;) while he just ignore other interesting Chinese even though they are giving the same specs for low price for years . He may appear honest in his review but if you think he don't do paid promotion than i'm sorry to say but have to say that you are an idiot. All media do this. Some are more explicit about it and others are not. If you blindly trust any media or a guy thinking that he will just give you the most honest opinion about a product than again I've to say you are a fool. His recent reviews are generic as f**k. Only interesting review I saw was htc u11 which is genuinely a bad product. MKBHD was fine a few years back but now he is just as bad as other pretensions media. He is now an avid apple products user but he will never admit that because he knows that most of his followers are android fanboys and if he admits that he is pro apple user ( his pc, his laptop, his main smartphone, especially his main smartphone is iphone, are all apple products) it will only hurt his popularity. He doesn't have the balls to say negative things about big company like apple and samsung. His samsung S8 review is a disgrace. He spend more time promoting dbrand skin than focusing a single feature of s8.

You don't even know how YouTube works. Whatever autobiography you wrote, you don't have any evidence for it. And secondly, it's his JOB to make videos and earn money. Google pays MKBHD and all other YouTubers. The brand doesn't pay them. And when a new brand arrives, any YouTuber can choose to review its products. If MKBHD's product reviews were paid promotions, he would link Oneplus's website or sites to buy Oneplus phones in all of his videos, and also put the words, 'Paid Promotion' on his video. Both at the same time. Since he doesn't do that, stop assuming! You are just as dumb as many other people on this site. And that's understandable, considering you just registered, as a member, about a month ago. Do some research, open your mind, and stop trolling like a tryhard kid who kills everyone in GTA 5 without a reason......and calls himself "the best"! And the worst of all, you don't have any proof for whatever you said. Like many other tryhards around here........

Edit for comment no.16 MKBHD might have been an associate during the release of the Oneplus One (which hasn't been confirmed to me), but he isn't now.

hahaha You have GOT to be kidding? Oppo/OnePlus? SUPPORT? Once they have your money, they are DONE with you. Other than online SOFTWARE support, their idea of hardware support is YOU dealing with the hoops and jumps just to get in touch with someone, then the circus of sending it back (paying the shipping too), then, you HOPE they send it back in working order. It's "cheap" for a reason.

You Phonearena you don't understand that the overwhelming majority of the people around the world use as Desktop operating system, Windows, and as mobile, Android and your site isn't full optimized for these operating systems? For you only matters the iPhone, the iPads and the Mac os and the huge profits of Apple.

It's not bad if they cram all the US bands in the phone. Not worth for just GSM.

typical fake news from One plus. They leak higher price and come out with a lower price to keep that wow effect. So most likely One plus 5 priced at 475$
