Earlier, the Chinese startup had tipped the prices of OnePlus 2 on two instances. Once it said that the price of OnePlus 2 would be higher than $322, the second time, OnePlus CEO hinted that the price of the OnePlus 2 would be around $400.
“I can promise that the OnePlus 2 will be priced under 450 USD. We’ve seen price estimates for the #OnePlus2 upwards of $500. But, we made a promise to our users. Honestly, it’s never been about the price. We simply make the best smartphones we can, and we go from there,” said Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus.
