As the launch event of the successor to the relatively new OnePlus 3T draws nearer, leaked information is available. Information which if accurate means we now know the OnePlus 5 price. Here’s what you need to know, with pricing details for multiple markets across the world.
OnePlus 3T Price
If you’re asking yourself “Can I trust these prices?” We would point to the fact that unlike Apple and Samsung, who try to remain secretive. The company behind the OnePlus line of handsets has no such desire, for some time now, it has been known what the handset looks like. Most recently, at an India vs. Pakistan Champions Trophy 2017 final match, a TV ad gave a full frontal view. Additionally, we’ve seen professional leakers such as SlashLeaks reveal packaging and cases for the device.
So, we know that the OnePlus 5 has curved edges, antenna lines of the top and bottom, plus dual-rear camera. Plus a fingerprint sensor, and a full metal body design which makes it look just as fantastic as almost any other smartphone available. But, what about the price, how much will you have to pay?

According to a Chinese leaker, who posted on the social media site Weibo, the OnePlus 5 price in India, will be determined as it will elsewhere by the variant. As for where you can buy the handset from in that country. According to the leaker, it’s going to be an Amazon exclusive, so only via Amazon.
How much will you have to pay?
- 64 GB variant with 6 GB of RAM will cost Rs 32,999
- 128 GB variant 8 GB of RAM will cost Rs 37,999
USA, UK, Australia
But, what if you do not live in India, will you too be subjected to having to buy the handset from Amazon? It doesn’t look as though this is the case, as in China the retailer JD.com is already accepting registrations from interested consumers. That could mean that in the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia, retailers, and Carriers may have struck deals to sell the handset.
As for the price, again we would like to remind you that these are not official figures. However, the indications are that this year, the OnePlus 5 price could cost more than what we’ve seen before. If true, this would be a departure from the companies mantra ‘Never Settle’, which has seen it produce high-spec devices for less.
However, what’s different this year, and could have driven the price up, is a move towards improved build quality and better internal components. Previously the OnePlus 3T launch price was incredibly low, at $439 USD. For that, you got 6 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 16-megapixel camera and high-end specs throughout.
Regarding the OnePlus 5 price, information obtained by Android Authority, suggests price pressures will certainly see a costlier 2017 handset. Previously, a retailer called OppoMart had the handset listed for $549 USD; however, many industry insiders have debunked that. Many of whom have stuck to the high-end/cost component theory as to why the cost could be greater.
As for what OnePlus 5 price is likely to be, we think around $649 USD, £499 GBP, and $880 AU. Which while expensive for a OnePlus handset, would still be a lot cheaper than the $750 for the Galaxy S8. Plus be nearly half the cost of the $1,000 Apple may charge for the iPhone 8.
