OnePlus One rumored to get $50 price cut on June 1st


Just the other day, OnePlus posted an interesting photo on their Twitter that stated “Time to change.” What could you expect, aside from OnePlus announcing the OnePlus Two? Well, a new rumor now has the original OnePlus One receiving a price cut, not debuting a new phone.

According to the exclusive information coming from fonearena, the OnePlus “Time for change” ad wasn’t suggesting a new phone. It is tailored towards the One’s price getting slashed worldwide by $50, sans India. This is a considerable amount, as it would make the 64 GB Sandstone Black variant $299 and the 16 GB Silk White variant $199.

This puts the OnePlus One in better position to still be competitive in the budget phone market. Phones continue to sell with high specs at a low cost. This levels the field with its direct competitor, the Asus ZenFone 2, which also costs $299 unlocked.

Now, at the end of the day this is still just a rumor. We won’t know what OnePlus has in store for the world until June 1st rolls around. I wouldn’t entirely dismiss the idea of the OnePlus Two being debuted, but then again it is expected to be released in Q3 of 2015.
