The OnePlus One from OnePlus has been one of the success stories of last year. With the larger companies like Samsung showing a dip in their profits in 2014, one might assume that the market was on the decline. However, the dip in the likes of Samsung’s profit was largely due to the increase in the number of companies like Xiaomi and OnePlus, who offer a significantly cheaper option, while not significantly offering a ‘cheaper product’ In fact, one of the reasons, the OnePlus One is loved by so many, is that it has been a device which could be classified as the ‘flagship killer’ it was hoping to be. By other a great product at a great product, companies like OnePlus have shifted the market going forward in 2015.
Since the release of the One, OnePlus have tried hard to stabilize the price of the device across the various markets. This price has generally revolved around the $350 market for the 64GB version and $300 for the 16GB version. For instance, in Europe the price of the device is set at â‚¬269 for the 16GB version and â‚¬299 for the 64GB version. Well, the latest news is that due to fluctuations in the Euro, OnePlus have today announced that they are increasing the price of the One in Europe. The price of the device will rise for the 16GB version from â‚¬269 up to â‚¬299. While the 64GB version is rising from the stated â‚¬299 up to â‚¬349. This will see the device in Europe, effectively come in at roughly $320 and $370 respectively
In terms of the changes, OnePlus state that the new price structure will come into place starting March 25th. Which does mean you still will be able to pick up the two devices at their current (cheaper) rate next Tuesday, when their next open sale takes place. On a separate note, yesterday OnePlus announced the launch of both of the OnePlus One Android 5.0 (Lollipop) OSes (Oxygen OS and CM 12S) will be available before the end of March.
