OnePlus have announced this morning that the OnePlus One will be available at a reduced cost for a limited time only. The OnePlus One, which is normally priced at $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 64GB version are being cut down in price to $249 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 64GB version. Effectively, seeing a discount of $50 being applied to each device. This does essentially see the OnePlus One made available at the cheapest price it has been.
Of course, the price drop should not come as a massive surprise, as reports came through last week suggesting that this price drop would be beginning today. In fact, originally, it had been largely speculated that OnePlus might be unveiling the OnePlus 2 today, due to an announcement the company sent out via its various social media outlets. The announcement detailed that it was "Time to change" and that the company wanted to "shake up" the industry. This immediately led to the speculation that the company was planning to unveil their highly anticipated follow-up device to the OnePlus One. However, then came the reports suggesting today's 'shake up' announcement would only be one which was announcing a price drop.
For those who are thinking about picking up a One at this reduced cost, you should be aware that this is a sort of flash sale type deal. According to OnePlus, there are limited numbers of devices that can be picked up at the reduced cost and the sale will only run for this week (June 1st through to June 7th). Not to mention, the reduced devices will only be available at specific times on each day and while stock lasts. The time of availability for the devices is listed as GMT (UK time) which is typical of OnePlus and as follows. Starting today (June 1st), the One will be available from 12:00 GMT, June 2nd devices will become available 2:00 GMT, June 3rd at 12:00 GMT (8 am EST), June 4th at 2:00 GMT, June 5th at 12:00 GMT, June 6th at 2:00 GMT and lastly 12:00 GMT on June 7th. Therefore, those interested in picking up one will probably have to act fast when the time does come round as they are likely to sell the allocated reduced devices quickly.
