For any fellow Canadians who are in the market for a new Android device, OnePlus has just cut the price of their 7 Pro by $100-110 CAD. New prices are as follows:

6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage: $899 (was $999)
8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage: $939 (was $1049)
12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage: $1009 (was $1119)

Even better, OnePlus is offering a refund of the difference between the old and new pricing for all 7 Pros purchased between Friday, May 17th at 10am Eastern Time and Friday, June 28th at noon (also ET). Eligible buyers should have already received an email from OnePlus.

It would seem that their first "pro" phone isn't selling as well in this country as OnePlus would have hoped. Some possible explanations as to why:

  1. OnePlus was too greedy with their pricing—the USD list price of the base model ($669) converts to only $878 CAD;
  2. They misread the market and didn't anticipate being undercut by the Pixel 3a and 3a XL;
  3. Peak smartphone.

Whatever the reason, Canadians can now purchase a 7 Pro for less than a thousand bucks, at least before taxes. An even smarter move might be to import a regular 7 instead.
