The new OnePlus 7 Pro is doing great in the market as the flagship phone with all the high-end features. While it is the highest costing phone in OnePlus series, it is still very cheaper than other flagships.
The comparatively low price is one of the main reason behind the popularity of OnePlus 7 Pro. It looks like the tag of the lower priced flagship is over and the sales on OnePlus are in danger due to the new carrier offers. Let us look at what are the deals which have threatened the reign of OnePlus 7 Pro.
Samsung and Google Deals
The thing in the US country market and most of the world is the extra cost of the carrier, which increases the price of a smartphone by a considerable amount. But at the same time, carrier locked phones are a lot cheaper in comparison and on offers.
Both Samsung and Google are currently selling their flagships phones at a huge discount. The Samsung Galaxy S10 has a price cut of $200 and is currently sold at just $699 at the carrier stores. Similarly, Google Pixel 3 XL also starts at a $699 price tag. Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint are selling their carrier locked phones at an offer price.
OnePlus 7 Pro is in Trouble
The reason why it should worry the makers of OnePlus smartphones is that it puts the price of all the three phones at the same figure. Samsung Galaxy S10 has a way better camera than OnePlus 7 Pro, while Pixel phones are the first one to receive Android updates. The low price of the OnePlus 7 Pro was the only reason it was preferred over the other flagship phones.
More than 75% of the US public uses a carrier shop for their Smartphone needs. They rarely change their network and have no trouble in using the same carrier for years. While OnePlus 7 Pro is only available at T-mobile and that too for $699 with no possibility of a discount.
In a choice between popular brands like Samsung and Google, most of the users would never prefer OnePlus. If Galaxy S10, Pixel 3 XL, and OnePlus 7 Pro are the same price, there are little chances that someone picks up the OP 7 Pro. A pop-up camera or a 90 Hz refresh rate display is not enough, without the low price advantage, OnePlus 7 Pro is in a lot of trouble now.
