Everyone's talking about the OnePlus 3's steep price cut during Flipkart's Big Shopping Days sale. Whether the sale is happening or not, those who are determined to buy OnePlus 3 can do so without storming their brains with all this confusion.
OnePlus 3 has proven to be one of the best premium smartphones for its price and the company's latest OnePlus 3T is just as good. We reviewed OnePlus 3 back in July and found it worth the money spent. But if you are hoping that Flipkart's offer on OnePlus 3 at Rs. 18,999 is true, you are not at fault.
There are plenty of interested buyers waiting to see if the sale will happen or not. But the truth will be revealed on Sunday, when Flipkart will commence the sale. If you are hung up on that offer, it's best to keep a watch on Flipkart's Big Shopping Days sale page starting midnight tonight till 4 p.m. Sunday.
But if you are feeling all this is just too good to be true and you wish to buy the smartphone then the only official channel currently offering the phone is Amazon India. OnePlus and Amazon.in have partnered to sell OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones online.
Sadly, you will not be entitled for any discounts on OnePlus 3 as shown by Flipkart. But you will have the seller's and the phone maker's blessing (we mean guarantee here), which you would not on a Flipkart purchase.
There is an advantage of buying OnePlus 3 from Amazon India as you get the choice between Graphite and Gold colour options. As per Flipkart's promotion, only the Gold variant will be up for grabs during the sale. Frankly, it would be such a bad deal after saving Rs. 9,000 if the product comes with the company's warranty.
In case you are wondering, here's what you are paying Rs. 27,999 for.
OnePlus 3 features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a 16MP primary camera, an 8MP front snapper, a metal unibody and a fingerprint scanner integrated within the home button. It is powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery. The handset also has a USB Type-C port for fast charging and data transfer, supports 4G LTE and VoLTE and 64GB storage.
If you are looking for any offers on the product, Amazon India gives you one year of accidental damage protection with OnePlus Care, one year of double data for Idea customers and Rs. 500 worth eBook promotion credits. That should mean something if you are truly convinced to buy the phone anyway.
