The OnePlus 5 launch is almost here, with the company recently announcing that it will be on June 20. The specs and other important information has also surfaced online in the last few weeks. But one of the biggest rumors right now is that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will come at a higher price than previous releases.
Pricing has not been confirmed by the company but a music festival that has OnePlus as one of its sponsors has given everyone an idea on how much the phone might cost. The music festival is currently giving out two VIP passes in a Facebook contest. The VIP passes normally cost 199 euro each. The contest is also giving out a OnePlus 5 phone, which will be launched on June 20. The contest rules reveals that the value of the prize is 948 euro and if you subtract the prices of the two free VIP passes, that leaves you with what might be the price of the phone. A 550 euro price is a lot higher than previous releases but it does make a little sense as prices have continued to rise with each release. The latest release, the OnePlus 3T, debuted with prices of $439 and $479.
The OnePlus 5 will be officially announced on June 20 but there is already plenty of information about the phone. The price may seem a little high but the rumored specs make it sound like it will be a very powerful phone. The phone is rumored to have a whopping 8GB of RAM and OnePlus recently confirmed a dual camera by sharing an image of the phone. An Amazon listing has also shown that the phone will come with 8GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 835 processor.
The image posted by OnePlus on Twitter shows the back of the phone and the words dual camera and clearer photos on the side. The dual-lens camera seen on the phone looks similar to the iPhone 7 Plus camera. On the tweet, the company also shows the June 20 launch date and the time. A June 22 launch date in India has also been confirmed by the company. The phone will reportedly be an Amazon India exclusive.
