The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is finally going to be announced tomorrow, putting an end to a long period of leaks, rumors, and teasers. With just 24 hours left to go, though, the flagship smartphone’s pricing has appeared online and it’s certainly not cheap.

In Europe, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition will retail at either €849 or €859 depending on the market. Tipster Ishan Agarwal says the flagship features 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage as standard but this still represents a price hike of €30 over the equivalent OnePlus 7 Pro. It’s also significantly higher than the €699/€709 price tags of the 6/128GB OnePlus 7 Pro and the €589/€599 cost of the OnePlus 7T which was announced just a couple of weeks ago and goes on sale Friday, October 18.

Aside from a few changes to the exterior, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is expected to be virtually identical to the non-McLaren 7T Pro. This means consumers will be able to find Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+, a 4,085mAh battery, and Android 10 straight out of the box coupled with the latest version of Oxygen OS. In addition to all of this, a triple-camera setup on the rear which itself is identical to the one found on the OnePlus 7 Pro is rumored alongside a new laser autofocus system.

Separate rumors also suggest a 5G version is on the way although this will probably be limited to a handful of markets including the US, where it’ll reportedly be sold as a Verizon exclusive rather than a T-Mobile model.

Oneplus is slowly becoming less and less affordable and that isn't a good thing. It defeats the purpose of what a OnePlus device is supposed to be, an affordable flagship level device that undercuts the competition.

Wait, first of all this is a special edition with a luxury automotive tie-in. The Porsche Design Huawei editions sell for a lot more. The normal OnePlus 7T Pro will once again undercut the competition by a couple of hundred bucks. So, I'd say this is where OnePlus should be; fully fledged, and still cheaper than the competition. When they were selling for around half, they were not fully fledged flagships, they were more like glorified midrangers with top Snapdragons.

True, but if they give you high end hardware, beautiful design, almost pure Android, basically better than Samsung S10/plus for the same price or a little cheaper, then what's wrong with that?

People can take craps like note10+ or iphone 11 pro,ok these are good devices too, for 1099$ but have disgust for a 699$ oneplus device that has even better specs than these 2.
