Update: Statement from OnePlus India

OnePlus is focused on creating premium flagship smartphones. We have an exclusive partnership with Amazon in India. We advice customers to purchase OnePlus products only through official channels as we cannot guarantee the authenticity of the products sold elsewhere.

Oneplus 3 has been in the market for a while now, but it hasn’t received any considerable price cut so far. With the launch of its successor Oneplus 3T, we all have been waiting for a price cut. Thankfully, the wait is going to get over soon, as Flipkart is going to sell Oneplus 3 for a surprise price of “1,_999/-” during its year end sale event, Flipkart Big Shoppings Days. The sale will commence on 18 December and will last till 21 December. We assume the price would be Rs. 19,999 and anything less than that would be icing on the cake.

As many of us know that OnePlus is an exclusive partner for sale with Amazon, it is quite surprising to see the OnePlus 3 teaser on Flipkart. Looks like OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei feels the same, he tweeted to the Indian e-commerce company’s Executive Chairman and Co-Founder Sachin Bansal, saying “What’s this? We’re exclusive with Amazon.”

To recap, Oneplus 3 is a flagship from Oneplus released in Jul 2016. It was well received in different markets across the world. The reception was so astounding that Oneplus temporarily stopped the sale in 20 European countries. It is the worth noting that, the phone has highest rating under smartphones category in Amazon India website.
