OnePlus 7 Pro prices leak, and it's more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S10e

Triple-camera and a 90Hz OLED display don't come cheap

Ouch. This is exactly what we were afraid of.

OnePlus has been steadily teasing details about its forthcoming flagship smartphone – the OnePlus 7 Pro. The Shenzhen-based company has already confirmed it'll boast a next-generation OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, speedy UFS 3.0 storage, no wireless charging, 5G compatibility, and a triple-camera on the back. It's a seriously impressive set of features and specs. It also sounds like an expensive set of features and specs, and now a new leak has seemingly confirmed our suspicions.

Prolific tipster Ishan Agarwal, who already published a series of high-resolution leaked images that purportedly unmasked every colour variant coming to the flagship smartphone line-up, shared details on the European prices.

According to the leakster, OnePlus 7 Pro starts from €699/€709 depending on the market for the entry-level model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. That works out at £603/£612 when converted. However, that's unlikely to be how the Shenzhen-based company works out the UK pricing.

For example, the OnePlus 6T with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs €589 in France, which is roughly £508 converted, but actually costs £529 in the UK. As such, we're much more likely to see the entry-level OnePlus 7 Pro cost around £639.

Elsewhere, Agarwal has tweeted that OnePlus will charge €749 for the OnePlus 7 Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and €819 for the (presumably) maxed-out model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. That's a lot

For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S10e costs €759 in the same markets, so OnePlus will be charging more than the entry-level model in the Galaxy S10 series. Granted, OnePlus likely thinks of its handset as more comparable to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, which will set you back €909 and €1,009 respectively.

So, OnePlus is still priced quiet aggressively when compared to those handsets. However, this is still a very different proposition from a company that positioned its smartphones as "Flagship Killers" and charged £329 for its latest handset just three years ago.

OnePlus will unveil its new flagship smartphone series on Tuesday May 14, 2019. If you didn't manage to snag a ticket to the sold-out event, don't worry. T3 will be in the crowd and will bring you everything you need to know.
