In our earlier reports, we mentioned that the Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus will make its flagship model OnePlus 3 available in O2 retail stores since the invite system was more of a mess. Although the OnePlus 3 was available for much lower price than the other flagship devices, the invite system was becoming more of a formality than a marketing strategy. Well, now OnePlus and O2 have partnered to sell OnePlus 3 in the UK from 29th of Septemeber without any invite.
O2 is a retail store which provides telecommunications services in UK which is owned by the Spanish multinational Telefonica. This is going to be the first carrier partnership of OnePlus which will keep the buyers interested with device since many have been losing the interest with the invite system which is very difficult to get.
Moreover, this will also solve the customer service problem that have been accomplished with the OnePlus users since they can visit the O2 store for any kind of support that they need. The OnePlus 3 can be grabbed starting £28 a month without any initial payments and it is also available off-contract for £329.
The OnePlus 3 will go on sale starting September 29th in O2 stores as well as online. There is also news that the staff member David has mentioned on OnePlus forum that O2 will also stock accessories from October but has not mentioned the date.
