January 20, 2016 - Written By Diego Macias

OnePlus is famous for offering smartphones with good designs and specs at a lower price than many competitors. Now, the company has teamed up with Henchman and its innovative on-demand concierge services to deliver their products in London in less than an hour. They have created the campaign “60 Minutes Or Free”, so it’s a good opportunity for those interested in purchasing the flagship called OnePlus 2 or the nicely-designed mid-range OnePlus X. The campaign will be available tomorrow, January 21 in the central London UK, area, from Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush in the west, to Shoreditch and the City in the east, and from Camden and Primrose Hill in the North to Battersea and Bermondsey in the south. Orders can be made from the Henchman website while supplies last, stocks will be replenished at 10am,12-noon and 2pm.

The devices start at £289 for the OnePlus 2 and £199 for the OnePlus X, Henchman usually charges 10% for their deliveries, however, the company has confirmed that there is no delivery charge in place for the OnePlus partnership. So the OnePlus 2 or the OnePlus X deliveries will only cost the price of the handset with no additional fees on top. Additionally, the devices will be sold without the need for an invitation in a first come first served basis. Everyone who orders one of these devices will get a gift from OnePlus and one randomly chosen user could get a limited-edition OnePlus X Ceramic instead of the regular version, and another person who orders the OnePlus 2 might end up getting a premium gift bag filled with accessories and other goodies, once again, the lucky winner will be chosen randomly. Just as the name of the campaign suggests, if Henchman can’t deliver the devices within the hour, users won’t have to pay for them.

“With ’60 Minutes or Free’ we are introducing a unique on-demand initiative that makes it faster and more convenient for our fans to get their hands on OnePlus devices,” said Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder and head of global. This seems to be a nice experiment for now, but if it turns out successful, more companies could adopt similar delivery schemes and users would not have to wait as long for the delivery of their new gadgets.
