The OnePlus One Christmas Sale puts the smartphone up for grabs sans invite
OnePlus is different from most smartphone manufacturers, but just like the big guys, they love to put on a big sale. The OnePlus One Christmas Sale has just been announced, and it’s putting the company’s flagship killer up for sale without an invite while supplies last.
One of the knocks on the OnePlus One was the invite system which wasn’t the best idea. It’s not been easy to pick up the handset, but the OnePlus One Christmas Sale is going to make things simpler by doing away with the invite system for a time. How long that lasts, depends on the supply and the phone is said to arrive by December 25th which is a must this time of year.
The pricing on the OnePlus remains the same, so the 16GB edition will set you back $299 while the 64GB OnePlus is listed at $349. That price gets you an unlocked handset with a Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM and a 3,100mAh battery. The display is 5.5-inches with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and the handset has a nice 13MP/5MP camera combo to boot. It runs Android 4.4.4 with CyanogenMod, but if you live in India those updates will cease with CyanogenMod 11S.
If you’re a specs junkie, the OnePlus Christmas Sale may not be for you as the device is a little dated compared to flagships with QHD displays and speedier SoC’s. That said, it is still a smartphone to contend with, especially considering its unlocked price. If you’re interested in picking one up, there is no time like the present and we except the smartphones to move quickly.
