While OnePlus 5 is basking in attention at present, people seem to be still attracted by its predecessor OnePlus 3T.
A few days back, OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 3T was almost out of supply and said that it plans to withdraw the older devices. Now, not even a month later, the OnePlus 3T is already out of stock in certain parts of the world. To be more specific, in North America and Europe.
Sadly, residents of the US and Europe can only view the features of the phone as of now. Yet, the OnePlus 3T has not yet gone out of supply in India and the UK via O2. However, it will be only available in India until the year end.
If you are wondering why OnePlus is keeping 3T available in India only? Well, it might be because of the price of the handset. Since the OnePlus 5 is expected to have more features it will possibly be more expensive. Hence, the company is giving consumers an option in terms of price compared to the upcoming high-end flagship.
It goes without saying that one of the important factors or selling point of smartphones for manufacturers is the pricing of the device. So as this factor plays an important role especially in the Indian scenario, OnePlus wants to keep its sales steady.
Moreover, OnePlus 3T might get a price slash also when the new model is announced. So, if you are planning to get your hands on a OnePlus 3T phone, it would be a good idea to wait until the launch of OnePlus 5, which is slated for June 20 in China and June 22 in India. You can buy the handset OnePlus' online store, Amazon India, and the OnePlus Experience Store in Bangalore.
