OnePlus 6 will be slightly pricier than the OnePlus 5T
OnePlus has always positioned itself as a company that launches much cheaper flagship smartphone than the likes of Samsung, Motorola, HTC, LG or Apple. Unfortunately, every year the so-called “flagship killers” OnePlus launches are more and more expensive.

If you're expecting the OnePlus 6 to have the same price as the OnePlus 5T, the company's current top-tier phone, you'll be disappointed. A new report suggests the upcoming OnePlus 6 price will start at $525 and will go up to around $700.

The cheapest version of the OnePlus 6 will pack 64GB, whereas the most expensive will include no less than 256GB. A mid-priced variant with 128GB will be available as well for around $600 outright.

Compare the prices above with those of the OnePlus 5T that start at $475 for the 64GB and you'll notice a slight increase (about $50). It kind of makes sense since OnePlus is trying to implement some of the latest hardware and technologies and they don't always come cheap, so it's mostly about the trade-offs the company is willing to make to offer consumers a true “flagship killer.”

Information about OnePlus 6's prices comes alongside a picture of a case that's been specifically designed for this phone. It's a bit blurry but it does confirm a vertical alignment for the dual-camera on the back.

Since we can't vouch for the accuracy of the report, we recommend taking the information with a grain of salt. Also, regardless of the information leaked today, you should definitely expect a slightly more expensive OnePlus 6.

Glad, Samsung didn’t raise their S9 prices.

That’s funny considering the US version is superior.

It's the treatment that us europeans are used to from smartphone brands. Usually Samsung is one of the few who doesn't treat us like crap, but i guess that changed with the S9, as the version we get is horrible, as you mentioned. Apple and Google treats us pretty damn poorly, but Google has been improving recently, which can not be said for Apple who prices the iphone X 50% higher than in the US, in my contry, which is a much larger difference than the tax difference.

Agreed. But to be fair, their prices were much higher to begin with. Now Samsung's own webstore is listing the S9 for $960 CAD. Thats $75 less than the S8's $1,035 CAD asking price last year. In Canada anyway.

They're missing the whole point of their own phones...

Sadly carl pei recently showed that he could care less about how his fans feel after that "learn to love the notch" statement

Certainly. People wouldn't buy Oneplus phones anymore if they continue to raise their phone prices like this...

1+ is burying it own motto,no point in buying their phone anymore,the new mid-range Pixel coming in July or August will be the new Nexus or Nokia will be the new Nexus.

Yeah, but knowing Google, that midrange Pixel will be butt-ugly and overpriced.

Flagship killers shouldn't cost as much as a flagship... just a thought.

Isn't $525 around 27% less than $719 (s9) or 37.5% less than $839 (s9+)? How much less should a flagship killer be?

They pricing their devices higher and higher if they could stick with smaller footprint maybe the cost would be cheaper and they could price it at the same price as the 5t

The OnePlus One was priced ~£229 or 269£ (16/64GB) and now the 5T costs basically double that.

The OnePlus 3 was the last phone they released that was actually good value, at £299 it was a bargain on release. OP5T at £499 seems good compared to the others but the camera is still s**t, no water proofing, no wireless charging, no 1440p display, no HDR support, pointless second camera on the rear which does nothing, no stereo speakers, no HD steaming, actually the more you think about it £499 is too high yet they want to increase the price.

As is the OnePlus way. More expensive Everytime. I loved my 3t but their quality control was s**t. The power button failed on mine then I sent it in for them to repair under warranty and it failed again 3 months later. After that I was done with OP.

LOL, remember when they were a "bargain"? Oh! But they are!!! Look how expensive the other flagships are. Nope, wouldn't touch an Oppo OnePlus for anything.

They had "latest technologies " of that time in previous models to...so using latest technologies can't be explanation for price increase.

It's all a con, there was no justification for the price hike from the OP3. Reviewers gave them a free ride and hyped their product and most of us fell for it.
