OnePlus will launch its new OnePlus 7 phones on May 14. This will be the first time the company launches a Pro model and it looks increasingly like an attempt to move upmarket, as the top trim OnePlus 7 Pro is now being touted to have an MSRP north of 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.
