Don’t buy the OnePlus 9 Pro for $969 now, you may not be able to find it. Android police Please note that despite the release date of April 2nd, OnePlus has not yet sold a “starter” version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Third parties such as Amazon, Best Buy, B&H and T-Mobile also did not offer low-cost options. If you want to get the 9 Pro in time, you have to buy the 12GB/256GB version for $1,069, which is not a huge premium, but it may exceed the price you want to pay.
A representative said that OnePlus still intends to sell the basic model, but did not provide a timetable. Although a high-end version is still available, it is unclear why OnePlus has postponed its release.
This is not entirely surprising. Chip shortages are very common, and stopping the sale of one model may help OnePlus keep supply in line with demand. If so, you may need to wait for a while. If you are willing to make some trade-offs at a lower price and short-term satisfaction, you may want to consider using the regular OnePlus 9.
