OnePlus started out as a company which presented quite a unique marketing strategy – it was the first time that a person needed invites to purchase a phone. With the launch of their original flagship killer – the OnePlus One – the company has the ball rolling for what would seem a pretty interesting journey.
Two years have passed since OnePlus kicked things off, and December 17th marks their second anniversary in the smartphone sector. To celebrate this occasion, OnePlus has decided to offer some good offers to the Indian consumers.
ONEPLUS 2: NO MORE INVITES NEEDED!
According to the official blog post in the OnePlus forums, the company announced that the OnePlus 2 would now be available to purchase without the need of having to possess an invite. This scheme would begin on the midnight of December 5th.
The OnePlus 2 was the company’s flagship device for the year 2015, and although it might not be the ‘flagship killer’ that the OnePlus One was, it still has a few worthy tricks up its sleeve. With a metallic frame hugging the sides, a 5.5 inch 1080p display, state of the art USB Type-C connectivity and a uber fast and accurate fingerprint sensor on board, the OnePlus 2 competes with the likes of the Nexus 6P at a much lesser price point.
The OnePlus 2 is – without a doubt – a powerful device in the sub 25k bracket, and people looking to buy their next phone will rejoice at the fact that invites are no longer needed to buy it!
ONEPLUS X: GET IT DELIVERED WITHIN 15MINS!
Along with the OnePlus 2, the company also launched the OnePlus X. Priced at a lower mid-range bracket, it offers the same specifications as the OnePlus One, but with a few aesthetic and other improvements here and there.
To celebrate their second anniversary, OnePlus has decided to make the OnePlus X available invite free to prospective buyers between December 5th and 7th. Moreover, on December 8th, people can buy the OnePlus X via the Ola cabs application without an invite. The company claims that through this modus of buying the device, the phone will be delivered to the customer’s doorstep within 15 minutes of placing the order – which is a first for any company!
The arrangement to buy the OnePlus X via the Ola application is available for seven cities in India – Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. Users of the application will have to click on the ‘OnePlus X’ category tab on the app between 10am and 7pm. The delivery will be carried out through Ola cabs, and the buyer can pay either via cash on delivery or through credit / debit cards.
The company is also offering discounts on some of its popular accessories. OnePlus 2 Style Swap covers will now be available at a discount of 50%, and select OnePlus One accessories will be available for 90% off.
OnePlus is definitely ringing in the season of cheer with their mouth-watering deals and schemes, and Christmas just got better for existing – and prospective! – OnePlus device owners!
