New leak claims the OnePlus 7 Pro will cost over US$800
OnePlus is set to release its next set of devices in a few weeks, with the company confirming the launch event for May 14. This will be the first time the Chinese company will be releasing two devices at once: The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. According to a new leak, it will also be the first time the company takes a huge step up in terms of pricing.
According to the source, the OnePlus 7 Pro will start at US$700 for the 6/128 GB model. The 8/256 GB model will set buyers back US$749, while the top of the line 12/256 GB SKU will have an MSRP of US$829. Not much is known about the regular OnePlus 7 but it's expected to be priced similarly to the OnePlus 6T. That makes sense, of course, since it's very much an incremental upgrade.
Having a Pro model allows OnePlus to move upmarket and compete with the Samsung Galaxy S series and LG G phones. We expect the 6/128 GB model of the OnePlus 7 Pro to be the most popular, as it offers the most value. While the higher trim options are pricier than what one would expect from a device with the OnePlus crest, they're still quite a bit cheaper than other flagships with similar amounts of storage and memory.
