2018 has been a great year for many phone brands, especially OnePlus, which has earned great sales and recognition in India and around the world. OnePlus 6T is widely appreciated by consumers and critics alike, and the Chinese smartphone maker has found a way to thank people as a token of its gratitude with a discount on its best flagship yet.

If you're planning to buy OnePlus 6T, the year-end sale is worth considering. The brand otherwise doesn't offer discounts on its products due to the minimal profit margins on its products, but timely discounts are welcoming.

What's the discount?

OnePlus is offering two discounts on the 6T smartphone.

  • Rs 1,500 instant discount on all EMI transaction using HDFC credit and debit cards via Amazon.in and OnePlus.in
  • Rs 2,000 additional off on exchanging old OnePlus smartphone for the all-new 6T

But that's not it. OnePlus is also offering no-cost EMI up to 6 months for those who purchase the 6T from any Croma and OnePlus exclusive offline store. If this is the first time you're switching to a OnePlus phone, exchanging any smartphone will fetch you an additional Rs 1,500 discount.

Why OnePlus 6T?

OnePlus 6T offers a premium spec-sheet that competes directly against the likes of best flagships in the market. Besides that, the smartphone has received several awards and compliments from those who reviewed the phone in real-world scenarios, including the title of the most preferred premium Android smartphone this year.
