    Not 620. It won't be that high. We're looking at 520 to 550

    Right, I forgot OnePlus doesn't use an exact exchange rate. If they add OIS and a few other features, $520 for the 64/6gb variant isn't bad at all. Especially if they allow the 5-10% student discount.

    It will be interesting to see if Samsung offer their S9 for $25(US) less than a new OP6, just like they did last year with the S8, when the OP5 was announced on June 20th.

    You would have to be a total lunatic to pay $620 for some Chinese iPhone knockoff with no support, no customer service, barely a year worth of updates and usually borderline illegal SAR ratings over Google Pixel 2 for $30 more and get 3 years worth of updates straight from the source, second to none camera, stellar customer service, rock solid stable performance, etc.

    $ 620,00 would indeed be too high. However the cheapest model will be approximately $ 519,00. ;)

    I guess you thought i was Indian because of the avatar: that is Ron Swanson, and im from Germany. ^^

    You can still vote with your wallet. Also: some people whined about how students got sooo much discount. Those idiots don't even know about students' tuition fees and what they need to do to keep themselves afloat. Yeah, you might just not buy a Smartphone that "expensive" at all, if you are struggling. But mind that all companies hiked up the price across the line for good smartphones and you don't really have that much of a choice anymore. Sure, If you want it, you have to swallow it.
    To me, OP was all about Highend for "Mid budget", by cutting off marketing and the middle man. Everyone was happy and it was good. But suddenly they gone from
    acceptable 399€ for the 3 to frickin' 499€ for the 5/5T. (Lets not forget they started at 299€ for the One)
    Apples pricing strategy is simple psychology: if its expensive - some assume that it HAS to be good. And people fall for it. So if something is cheaper (like Androids), it HAS to be BAD - even if its not the case. Naturally everyone hike their prices up to "compete" and tell you the quality is about the same. But Android phones depreciate faster than iPhones. Samsung asked for 849€ for the S9 a couple weeks ago - you can get it for 579€ now. :D
    You see - nobody wants to pay for or hold on to something that loses that amount of value really fast. People will never appreciate android smarthone craftmanship or innovation - so you can never justify a high price tag on these. And 519€ / 569€ for the 6 is pretty high i would say. You pay that extra 20€ (from the already expensive 5T) for that couple percent more screen estate now. But basically 20€ extra for that silly notch that no one really asked for.

    People keep keep.quoting €519 that will be for a Grey import from market sellers OP have not announced any partnership with Amazon anywhere other than India.

    This is another misconception, OP advertise and heavy. They sell for less because they offer less,
    No certification
    Minimal hardware
    No R&D costs as the design is handed to them.
    No factory OPPP most likely still. build the thing for them.
    All this is about to change and the price in accordance, I will be in no rush to pick up a OP6 the first batches always have issue.;)

    They had done it in the past https://www.amazon.de/dp/B078WSQ4SC/
    Of course they will tie things together from there on out. And they have always price matched with OP

    yes for now. but i said they did less earlier in the beginning.
