OnePlus holding a Reddit AMA tonight – get your questions ready!

OnePlus AMA March 5th

Reddit AMAs (ask me anything) seem to be the latest grassroots marketing technique OEMs are employing as a way to reach out to their fan base and new customers alike. It was only a few weeks ago we saw HTC USA throw one, and now we have up and coming smartphone maker OnePlus jumping on the Reddit bandwagon.

OnePlus took to their Google+ page to announced that they’ll be throwing their AMA in the r/Android subreddit tomorrow tonight, March 4th, at 8:30PM ET/5:30PM PT. An Android OEM without any actual product to show off, OnePlus is hoping that by answering questions directly from Android fans, you’ll learn about not only what makes the company tick, but how they hope to differentiate themselves from the Samsungs, LGs, and Apples of the world.

OnePlus vs the world

As a quick recap, OnePlus is a new startup company from ex-Oppo exec Pete Lau. They’ve been hyping up their upcoming smartphone which is said to launch later this year and feature high-end specs — all priced at under $400 unlocked and off-contract. Those are pretty big words considering the only phone to currently hold that title is the Nexus 5 or even the Moto X — 2 devices manufactured by OEMs with a vastly larger amounts of resources at their disposal.

Should be good, but if you aren’t able to attend, don’t worry. We’ll be following along closely, bringing you anything noteworthy from the AMA. Anything you’re dying to know about OnePlus?

    I believe they are doing it tonight in 4 1/2 hours.

    “They plan on doing the AMA on Wednesday 9:30 AM Beijing (Tuesday 8:30 PM EST) time.”

    They said “tomorrow” on their post because it was before midnight in China (where OnePlus is based) when they posted it. It is currently March 5th in China which is what they are referring to.

    Tomorrow for them, today for us here in the US. Damn time travelers.

    I like their marketing, it’s gave me a smirk, but it’s very ambitious to make fun of potential competitors when you don’t even have a product to compete with yet. Let’s see what happens later tonight.

      I thought it was funny that some people called it a “smear campaign”. I mean, the whole point of the company is to introduce a smartphone unlike any other, and to “never settle” with the other guys. I thought it was ballsy, but it got my attention.

    I like that image. Hopefully we hear some new things

    Pretty funny pic. They say high end specs under 400 bucks I hope they don’t mean mid-tier high like along the lines of HTC 816. I really hope they this one+ is all they are trying to make it seem, because as of now Xperia z2 is the only phone that has me sold and that’s only if it comes to the U.S. and HTC M8 even though it hasn’t been officially announced, I just luv HTC phones
