OnePlus was first known as the ‘flagship killer’. Since then, the Chinese company has gradually become one of the most popular brands in India’s premium smartphone segment. The OnePlus 6, launched in 2018, lost to Apple and Samsung and became the number one premium smartphone in India. After that, the company’s OnePlus 6T (Review) phone also became very popular in Bangladesh.
However, in early 2019, Samsung removed the OnePlus and took back the title of the number one premium smartphone. The South Korean company did this with the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of phones launched earlier this year. There is not much difference in the price of OnePlus phone with Galaxy S10 series phones. Apple has also recently reduced the price of iPhone XR. At that time, the new OnePlus 7 Pro between Rs 50,000 and Rs 60,000 will undoubtedly increase the competition in the Indian premium smartphone market.
While the OnePlus has been a huge success in India and in the global premium smartphone segment, Samsung, Apple and Huawei still dominate the global premium market. The Chinese company has launched OnePlus 7 Pro to solidify its position in that market. OnePlus 7 has been launched at a lower price than the OnePlus 7 Pro, even though we have launched one phone at a time. Both phones have flagship specifications inside.
OnePlus 7 is still launched in the ‘flagship killer’ segment. However, OnePlus 7 Pro has been launched in the premium flagship segment. This phone has been launched for around Rs 50,000. Customers who used to buy Samsung, Apple, and Google smartphones in the premium segment will now also consider buying OnePlus phones.
