OnePlus One Price to Remain the Same Says Co-Founder Carl Pei

Browse This Page

In a recent interview, OnePlus co-founder, Carl Pei said that they would not be slashing down prices for the OnePlus One even as sales for OnePlus 2 kickoff.

OnePlus has been a successful startup right from the beginning and with the OnePlus 2 registration reaching nearly 3 million now, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon. Carl Pei also mentioned the fact that they were very humbled at the immensely positive response to the product, especially as huge crowds were seen lining up the day before the launch to buy the product.

“There’s no planned OnePlus One price cut. We see price cuts as slapping our early customers in the face, and will only resort to it when we have no other choice.” – said Carl Pei

OnePlus continues to strive towards its motto of ‘Never Settle’ with the co-founder also quoted as saying, “You don’t kill other flagships by cramming all the specs into a device. That’s a surefire path to mediocrity. Never settle for mediocrity.”

With its holistic approach and focus to sell quality devices with high specs at affordable prices, OnePlus seems to be doing more than alright, for now.

Also they have never revealed any exact figures yet. Of course, just funding can't be enough for operating costs.

They never said they are making "ZERO" profit. They said their profit margins are Razor Thin. There's a difference.

Had one plus one used it for a month yes buit quality is good but not the best. Also it's difficult to fit in hand as compared to mi4. Mi4-18k Opo-22k 4k does means a lot for me so I go with mi4. Aint saying that opo is bad.

A moment of silence for all those people who were waiting for the One ➕ 2 just so they could purchase the One ➕ 1 at a low price 😂

Not even close. One Plus wins by a country mile.

They sold that phone at zero profit (like they said) so now how can they drop the price.

Lol .. Mi4 is nowhere near to oneplus.. Mi4 is basically iron box

I was sure abt this... Its a flagship killer of 2014, and one of the reasons was price. They're selling an awesome device at a reasonable price... There's no way they can cut price on this.

As it is made in china the labour is cheap and so are the resources and moreover there is no big brand name involved.

Mi4 is way better than one plus one. And plus mi4 has also dropped its price so we have a clear winner!
