OnePlus has taken some major decisions this year while launching these 2 smartphone models this year. Firstly, in one hand where there is an ongoing pandemic is affecting more than 100 nations across the world, OnePlus came us as one of the major brands to launch their smartphone models amidst the situation. Secondly, they have brought some remarkable changes like Super AMOLED waterfall display, one of the industry best camera sensors, and many other premium upgrades. Thirdly, they have kept the pricing higher than ever in past. These decisions are quite risky and we are yet to see if OnePlus is going to cherish this or regret about these decisions this year. In conclusion, we have to wait and check the stats later this year.
