OnePlus mentioned there’s a possibility of an increase in price of their latest flagship device because of the fall in pound after the UK decided to leave the European Union.
Recently, the company announced that the price of the OnePlus 3 in the UK will increase from £309 to £329 from July 11th.
It was bound to happen, as the company stated before that they operate on very low margins and the weakening of the pound may have an effect on the price of the handset in the UK. It’s not a very big jump, but it still happened. Customers interested in the handset after July 11th will have to pay £20 extra to grab the handset.
OnePlus said in a post,
Given the effects of the unstable markets on our extremely thin margins, we’re reluctantly going to have make some small changes to our pricing structure for the device. In practical terms for our customers, this means that from July 11, 2016 (that’s next Monday), the OnePlus 3 will be £329 in the UK.
There’s still time to purchase the handset for £309 — the new price change is set to take effect on July 11th — so make sure to grab the handset before July 11th if you’re interested in picking up the OnePlus 3. And yes, you don’t need an invite, the company has dumped the invite system for its latest flagship device so you don’t have to wait to get the handset.
