The One Plus 3 will be officially launching on June 14th via VR. The phone will be available to purchase on the 15th of June at 12:30 IST via Open Sale. That clearly means that people will not require invites this time to get their hands on their very own One Plus 3. But the best part is, One Plus is organizing a special sale for its fans and the fans can buy the phone even before the phone has launched through an E-bidding process which was announced on Thursday in association with online automobile marketplace Droom.
This auction goes live from June 9, 4 PM to June 12, 3:59:59 PM and the top five highest individual bidders for the OnePlus 3 smartphones will end up owning the “first-ever OnePlus 3s in India” along with a surprise element attached to the phone, which OnePlus will reveal at the time of handing over the handsets to the winners
The company said, in a statement.
Bidders need to head over to the Droom website and register in order to participate in the auction. Bidding will commence from the lowest possible, that is Rs. 1, “with no cap on the final amount for bids.” Each and every bid will raise the price of the OnePlus 3 by Rs 5. A live leaderboard on the product page will showcase the top 10 bids in real time and the top 5 bidders will be sent a link to purchase the phone, that is immediately after the auction closes. However, the phones will be delivered to the bidders after the global launch date that is June 14.
Vikas Agarwal, general manager, OnePlus India said-
We are excited by the response from the OnePlus community to our latest flagship. Through this unique smartphone auction, we want to offer our loyal fans an opportunity to get their hands on the first few OnePlus 3 smartphones in the country, even before it goes on sale while also contributing to the society
The entire profits from the auction will go to the charity chosen by the OnePlus community through voting on OnePlus Forums, the company announced.
As always, we will be preset at the launch event and will bring you the latest of tech possible.
