OnePlus held flash sales on Monday for just a day where people could actually purchase the device for $50 less which is cheaper than the usual price throughout the last week. It had announced the discount last week in a move seen to clear out its old stock ahead of the upcoming OnePlus Two.
“We were blown away by the response in sales and took a hard look at the numbers to make sure we were maintaining our commitment to our users,” said the Chinese smartphone maker on its blog. The company attributed the discount to its efforts on saving costs over the past one year to a much more efficient level of operation.
“This has brought everything from the cost of components, engineering and assembly down, and in turn, the cost of the One,” reasoned out the company on its blog. The company said it receiv ed huge response and feedback from its fans on social media.
For those who missed the opportunity, the company said it would provide “an opportunity to get the Flagship Killer at this special price, which leads us to some big news: the OnePlus One now starts at $249, permanently.”
The OnePlus One has joined hands with Dropbox Pro to offer a one year Dropbox Pro subscription plus 64GB OnePlus One bundle for $349. This offer starts on June 10, for a limited time and is valid in the US, Canada and EU, said the company.
