OnePlus 6 Hits Record Sales, Rewarding India Customers with Cashback and More

OnePlus has announced today that their flagship OnePlus 6 has already crossed 1 million sales globally within 22 days of launch.

It also captures over 50 percent of the Indian market for models priced over US$400.

"As always, our community has surpassed our expectations and we have them to thank for the overwhelming success of the OnePlus 6".

OnePlus 6 has been received well since day one of its launch. And with this, the OnePlus 6 has become the fastest selling OnePlus device ever.

Fortunately, the OnePlus 6' most important variants are still in stock in the U.S. If you're interested in buying the phone you can do so on the company's website.

According to the report, OnePlus customer will receive an extra off of Rs 1,500 on the exchange of an older OnePlus smartphone.

Lastly, customers can avail free upgrades of software and diagnosis without any charges even on "Out of Warranty" cases, and there will be a 10% additional discount on spare parts. The front panel is a 6.28-inch full Optic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, offering an impressive 84 per cent screen to body ratio. It has a dual rear camera of 16-megapixel and a 20-megapixel sensor. For 8GB RAM + 128GB variant it is available at Rs 39,999. This is contrary to the price of the competing flagships that are available in the price segment of over $700 (approximately Rs. 48,000).

OnePlus attributed the success to its "one flagship a year" strategy, which involves concentrating on one big launch as opposed to several smaller ones, allowing the company to "create a superior product with a premium user-experience" each year, said the release.

With its presence in 36 countries in the world, OnePlus has struck partnerships with the likes of Amazon, Qualcomm, as well as carrier networks like O2 in the UK, Three in Denmark and Elisa in Finland.

Speaking to Business Insider via email, OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau provided details with regards to this remarkable feat by the company.

The company's achievement seems even more significant if one considers the fact that the phone is not available on Verizon, the largest carrier in the United States when number of customers are considered.
