Alleged OnePlus 6 price leaks out, but might be far from accurate

A newly-leaked image that allegedly reveals the price of the upcoming OnePlus 6 might give OnePlus fans a serious scare. According to the image (seen below), the OnePlus 6 should cost $749 - significantly more than any previous OnePlus flagship phone. Reportedly, this is the price of the handset’s variant with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space. But we’re having a hard time believing that the new OnePlus handset - which could look like the Oppo R15 seen above - will be so expensive.

Even if this leaked image is genuine, it’s likely not relevant for the US and most western markets. Alongside the alleged OnePlus 6 price, the image seemingly shows the Chinese prices of the Apple iPhone X 256 GB and Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256 GB: around $1,500 and $1,200, respectively. As you surely know, in the US, an iPhone X 256 GB actually costs $1,149, while a Galaxy S9+ can be bought for around $850 (albeit with just 64 GB of storage space, as the 256 GB model isn’t sold stateside). Thus, this price list can’t be taken seriously when we want to guess the real price of the OnePlus 6 for the US market. 

Alleged OnePlus 6 price leaks out, but might be far from accurate

If anything, given the swollen prices of the iPhone X and Galaxy S9+ shown on the leaked image, we should expect the OnePlus 6 to be sold for about the same amount of money as the OnePlus 5T (or maybe a bit more). As a reminder, the OnePlus 5T currently costs $499 (6 GB RAM + 64 GB of storage space), or $559 (8 GB + 128 GB). 

Most probably, the OnePlus 6 will be officially announced and launched in, or around June. Until that happens, you may want to check out our OnePlus 6 rumor roundup

I don't think it will be priced that high I'm guessing it will be a little more expensive than the 5T probably around $600-$650 and will be justifiable if it comes with a much improved dual camera and wireless charging.

$299 like oneplus one would've been nice.

tha tprice is a joke. If that is the case, Note 8 here i come. Or LG G6, etc. Last year's flagship. price should be no more than 550, free shipping and no tax. Anything more and no thanks. OP3 still works well.

Florine, un prost in china spune ceva ca sa se afle in treaba, dar nu cred ca astia vor creste pretaul atat de mult. Vor lua teapa. asta e clar, mai ales dupa ultimele vorbe ca OP transmite informatii in China. Ei spun ca nu, dar.... cine stie.

$500-$649 is ideal.They can get away with a pricing of $749 tbh, given the cost of similar high end smartphones it would still be considered a great price.

And worse when it comes about screen, camera, audio, no 1 gigabit LTE, no ip68. No wonder is cheaper, lots are missing

Similar as in hardware, which is what you mainly pay for. What do phones like the galaxy series have that is truly better than their oneplus counter part? The only thing that comes to mind is the display, very important of course but a slight downgrade in display is easy to get over. I for one hate the software found on samsung phones so that is enough for me to chose oneplus over them if I ever switch back to android, the amount of ram and speed that oneplus offers isn't easy to pass up either.

There is no credibility to Oppo's argument based on the slide. Not one company uses ROM on phones. Its NVRAM and not ROM. ROM is Read Only Memory.

$750 for a phone they didn't R&D for, hell no.

$750 with a notch?! LMAO This isn't selling well. Better include a Quad HD display,

I guess I'm the only one that thinks oneplus is in trouble this year? Why? besides the notch and a new SoC what else will this phone have? 10gb of ram?

A better camera, SOC, less bezels, and faster overall performance.

You have a source for those claims, or is that speculation?

Some companies have sold their products with too cheap price tag and making zero money or even losing it. I'm not surprised by this higher price.
