It seems OnePlus 3 owners won’t have long to wait for the Android 7.0 Nougat update to hit their handsets. OnePlus has confirmed that the device will begin receiving the first goods starting this month.
If you’ve looked at the OnePlus store lately, you’ll notice that many variants of the device are out of stock, with only the such and such being available at any given time. Well, it appears there’s reason for the dwindling availability: OnePlus might be getting ready to retire it.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau announced yesterday that the company is getting out of the mid-range smartphone business. OnePlus is not planning to release a new OnePlus X smartphone and will instead focus its efforts completely on “true flagship” devices.
OnePlus today announced a permanent price reduction across the entirety of their current smartphone lineup. The reduction is a nice $50 for the OnePlus One, OnePlus X, and the OnePlus 2. That brings the devices’ starting prices to $199, $249, and $299, respectively.
There’s something about being a smartphone/Android enthusiast that we’re constantly trying to identify every piece of tech whether in real life or cinema. According to OnePlus, they were willing to fork over $300,000 to get their phones — OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X — into the hands of prominent House of Cards characters. Did spot them?
OnePlus has announced a new installment plan to make paying for orders easier. Folks shopping in the company’s US store can pay for any order over $99 in installments, so you won’t have to pay full price for a device upfront.
