5G phones may cost $200 to $300 more, OnePlus CEO confirmed

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau tells that his company is working on both the new 5G phone and existing 4G phones in parallel and that he expects his 5G phone will likely cost $200 to $300 more. “It’s hard to know because there’s a lot of specifics still to look at, but it’s likely in the neighborhood of $200-300 more,” Lau says.

You may see some OEMs try to monetize as much as they can their existing customer base... on the other hand, you may see folks try to gain share and use price as one of those tools,” says Qualcomm president Cristiano Amon.
