We all love flagship phones, but we hate the price they come in at. That’s what the people at OnePlus a small start-up company promises to deliver, flagship phones at a cheap and affordable price! They are known for this in 2014 they launched their 1st phone OnePlus One which solds in at almost 19,000 INR, which promised flagship specs at a relatively cheaper price, they were really developing and small at that time so they started an “invite” system and their aim was to deliver the phone to the specific target audience and not a lot of people knew about that phone back then. In 2015 they launched their 2nd generation of OnePlus known as OnePlus 2 which was being sold at 20,000 INR all it was starting to receive some “hype” and people were going crazy to buy that phone, but yet it was also based on invite system. Then previous year they launched OnePlus 3 and 3T both were fully packed with specs and a relatively cheaper price of 27,000-29,000 compared to other similar speced phone, and then the invite system was abolished and this phone was open to all and was sold at amazon.in and they crushed it with the sales! Today OnePlus is dropping another phone in India “OnePlus 5”, and it follows a same trend of flagship phone for a cheaper price.
