OnePlus 6T price (rumoured)
A few days ago, the OnePlus 6T was spotted listed on a European site which leaked its price. Though the listing was removed very quickly, it said that 8GB RAM/128 GB storage variant will be priced at EUR 569 in Europe. A number of leaks have been making rounds for a long time now, but nothing is clear as of now.
3T was launched at a premium of Rs. 2000 more than OnePlus 3. Then, 5T was launched at the same price tag of OnePlus 5. However, we suspect that 6T is going to cost a bit more bucks than OnePlus 6 due to the inclusion of the in-display fingerprint sensor and a larger battery. The pre-bookings have already been started on Amazon as usual.
The customers need to pay a nominal fee of Rs. 1000 to pre-book the smartphone. The pre-booking will include freebies when the sale starts from November 1, 2018, onwards. The interested buyers will get to attend pop-up events of OnePlus in 9 Indian cities and in 12 different locations on November 2.
