OnePlus phones have great prices. Phones like the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 5T are premium Android phones with top-of-the-line hardware and yet they sell for almost half of what other companies charge. The downside of such aggressive pricing is that OnePlus products, including phones, rarely get a good discount. This changes for the OnePlus 6 from October 10 to October 15, when it will be sold at a price of Rs 29,999 in the Great Indian Festival sale on Amazon website. This marks a solid Rs 5,000 discount for the OnePlus 6, which otherwise costs Rs 34,999.
The Rs 5,000 discount on the OnePlus 6 is going to be available on the base variant that comes with 64GB internal storage. It is not clear right now if similar discount will also be available on other OnePlus variants that have 128GB storage or 256GB storage.
The discount on the OnePlus 6 on Amazon India comes just weeks before the expected launch of the OnePlus 6T. However, while it seems that the OnePlus 6T will come with a few unique features, over here at India Today Tech we feel that the OnePlus 6 at Rs 29,999 is still a fairly fantastic deal. This is a true high-end phone with the same core hardware -- Snapdragon 845 processor, a brilliant AMOLED screen, 6GB RAM -- that will be used in the upcoming OnePlus phone. Also, do note that the OnePlus 6T is bound to cost at least Rs 35,000 in Indian when it launches.
Software in the OnePlus 6 too is pretty neat. It is one of six phones -- Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel XL , Pixel 2 XL, Nokia 7 Plus and OnePlus 6 -- in India that run the latest Android 9 Pie.
