In line still with its famous flagship killer tag, the next OnePlus push remains an aggressive effort in terms of pricing. The latest leak is indicating that the OnePlus Pro 7, the bigger of the two upcoming Android handsets, will sell starting at €699 or roughly $674.

The asking price is still relatively affordable when compared to the leading competition. The equivalent models, for instance, from Apple and Samsung, are available on the market for no less than $1,000, which should prove that OnePlus has made sure that its flagship while becoming more expensive will remain accessible.

For a better perspective, Samsung retails the Galaxy S10 Plus in Europe starting at $1,100+ so for nearly the same flagship experience users can realize savings of more than $400 if they opt for the OnePlus 7 Pro. The handset from Samsung that is close to the OnePlus pricing is the S10e, which is marketed as the budget model.

It might be that the 7 Pro when unboxed, would be pricier than the Galaxy SD10e but the former, specs-wise, is a certified Android flagship so there is no competition at all.

That's even truer if the latest rumors are to be believed. First, the device will come with a screaming screen size at 6.67-inch that will make use of Quad HD+ Super AMOLED technology with 90Hz refresh rate. And unlike the S10 Plus, the OnePlus 7 Pro will be without the distracting notch, a feature that many fans will certainly applaud.

Then there is one hardware correction that is the result of a petition lodged by OnePlus users - the use of a better and larger haptic motor on the 7 Pro. According to CNET, "the new engine is 200% more powerful than the prior one."

It must be mentioned likewise that the component was introduced while ensuring that the OnePlus 7 Pro will not gain unnecessary thickness, which the company said, "could lead to a less ergonomic feel."

And ergonomic has been achieved on the upcoming device while making sure that its power juice will keep flowing longer than before, thanks to a 4,000mAh battery. The phone will power up on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC with 6GB/8GB of RAM support. The internal storage is at 128GB but with the option to jump at 256GB. It is believed the two OnePlus 7 models will benefit from fast-charging technology.

Now out of the box, it will be the latest Android Pie that will run the next OnePlus show and the chance is high the handset will be among the first to receive Android Q 10 when it becomes available.

On May 14, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will be outed and shortly thereafter the actual release date will follow. Availability is said to come via Amazon and select digital outlets, not to mention OnePlus experience stores.
