So that’s all the information we have as of now. Personally speaking, both smartphones are good for the asking price. But the OnePlus 7 Pro is clearly the show stealer this time in terms of features. OnePlus again nailed it with the extra features they are giving for that extra price. And faith in OnePlus’s pricing is again restored with OnePlus 7, which is actually cheaper than OnePlus 6T.
But the Bullets Wireless 2 are extremely overpriced earphones for the asking price. Even now the 1st generation Bullets Wireless is not much good value for the price, and now this 2nd generation has even more insane price.
