Since the Oneplus was release there has been hype about the device. People literally paying for invites, others waiting for weeks and months; hoping… that their number will be called next. Then the floodgates were opened, for an hour at a time to allow people to preorder the Oneplus and a second opportunity to do so is fast approaching on the 17th of November.
In an interview with Forbes, Co-founder Carl Pei told them that the sales of the Oneplus continue to grow and have now hit half a million units.
Normally when you launch a [smartphone] product it gets really hot in the first month, and in the second or third month, sales start to drop really fast. For OnePlus, when you look at our internal metrics, our sales just keep growing.
Noting that their profit margin on each device is far from impressive, but is getting noticed in the market and giving them the opportunity to hold the “flagship killer” tag but making only a handful of dollars per device won’t keep a company afloat for long. With the touchscreen issues being finally fixed and a relatively vocal number of user being disgruntled at the cost of the Nexus 6 is this the opportunity for the Oneplus to shine?
Will you be grabbing a Oneplus when the next pre-order opportunity arises?
