If the device's buyback price is less than Rs. 5000, then the users can still opt for exchange option and avail the new smartphone (OnePlus 2 or X) at discounted price.
This exchange deal is currently available in select cities in India, which include Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Secundrabad, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow and Ahemdabad.
