We’re about 12 days away from the launch of the OnePlus 6T, when all of our questions of the upcoming device will finally be answered. But 12 days is a long time in the smartphone space, and rumors will surface. The latest leak reveals what could well be the price of the OnePlus 6T, along with the expected variants that the smartphone will come with.
This new leak comes courtesy of Indian leakster Ishan Agarwal, who has collaborated with MySmartPrice to get the information. According to the leak, the OnePlus 6T pricing in India will start at Rs 37,999 for the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage variant, going up to Rs 40,999 for the 8GB / 128GB option and Rs 44,999 for the 8GB / 256GB option. Thus, the pricing will be higher than that of the OnePlus 6, which started at Rs 34,999.

What this leak also reveals is that OnePlus could finally do away with the 64GB storage option as its base variant, suggesting that users are looking for 128GB of storage as a minimum on new OnePlus devices. Given that OnePlus smartphones do not support storage expansion, users do look at higher storage. However, the Rs 3,000 price difference between the suggested 6GB / 128GB and 8GB / 128GB variants might come across as too high for just a slight bump in RAM.

The OnePlus 6T will be launched on October 30, with sales in India commencing on November 2. The device is expected to come with Android 9 Pie out of the box, a waterdrop-style notch, in-display fingerprint sensor and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood. Interestingly, it will also be the first OnePlus device to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack.
