In comparison, the OnePlus 8 series launched in April last year and the vanilla OnePlus 8 started at Rs. 41,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, though this model was exclusive to India. The 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant was priced at Rs. 44,999. The OnePlus 8 Pro started at Rs. 54,999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
The leaked prices for the OnePlus 9 series seem quite high, which, in part, could be due to the Hasselblad partnership. However, it should be noted that these prices have not come from OnePlus and the leak should be taken with a pinch of salt.
