Ahead of the big OnePlus 3 launch in a virtual space station, the company has slashed the prices of the OnePlus 2, OnePlus One and OnePlus X. The price of the 64GB variant of the OnePlus 2 is now $299, the OnePlus One is now $249, and the OnePlus X Onyx variant is the cheapest at $199.
The launch price of the OnePlus 2 64GB was $389, the OnePlus One 64GB was $349, and the OnePlus X was launched at $249. There is no price cut announced for Indian users so far, but we can expect the new prices to trickle down soon – as the company has done in the past. We have contacted OnePlus about how soon we can expect India-facing price changes, and will update this story once we hear back. At the moment, the OnePlus 2 is being sold at Rs. 22,999 and Rs. 18,999 for the 64GB and 16GB respectively. The OnePlus One 64GB is available for Rs. 18,999, while the OnePlus X 16GB is being sold for Rs. 14,999.
In the meanwhile, OnePlus is expected to unveil the OnePlus 3 on June 14. The company has announced that the event will be live streamed through a virtual space station, and even gave away 30,000 Loop VR headsets for free. The company claims that the event can be watched without the headsets as well. It will sell the Loop VR headset in India from June 3 to June 7 on Amazon India, the registration for which is now open.
Past leaks suggest that the OnePlus 3 will sport a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, and run on the Snapdragon 820 SoC. It will sport a 16-megapixel rear camera, and be accompanied by an 8-megapixel selfie camera. It should come in 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage and 6GB RAM/64GB storage variants, and either pack a 3000mAh or 3500mAh battery. The OnePlus 3 is expected to see a major design overhaul, and will sport an all metal look.
