  • OnePlus is reportedly working on a new phone line with flagship power.
  • This series is tipped to range in price from ~$315 to ~$473.

OnePlus gained a reputation in its formative years as a brand offering flagship performance and specs in an affordable package. The company’s phones have increased in price over the years, but it seems like the brand could be going back to its affordable roots for a new series.

Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station has claimed that OnePlus is working on a new phone line focused on performance and gaming. It’s believed that this phone series will have a price ranging from 2,000 to 3,000 yuan (~$315 to ~$473). Chinese pricing tends to be cheaper than the rest of the world, so we’d expect a substantial price hike in Europe and potentially India.
