Continuing its old tradition, OnePlus has stated that it will open pop-up stores in India, US, China, and Europe. These pop-up stores will follow after the launch of the OnePlus 6 on May 17 and allow people to buy the OnePlus 6 ahead of usual sales. In India, these pop-up stores will be setup in eight cities between 21 and 22 May. Timings will be 3:30PM-8PM on 21st May, and 11AM-7PM on 22nd May. In India pop-up stores will come up at below places:
Mumbai-High Street Phoenix
Chennai-The Forum Vijaya
Hyderabad-The Forum Sujana
Delhi-DLF Place Saket
Kolkata-South City Mall
Ahmedabad-Gulmohar Park Mall
Bangalore-OnePlus Experience Store, Brigade Road
The handsets will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis and store limited stock of the new flagship. If you need extra motivation to visit these stores, OnePlus has roped in top YouTubers like Linus Tech Tips and MKBHD, TechSmartt, Unbox Therapy, and iJustine who will be at these pop-ups in the US. Buyers will also get an extra OnePlus backpack and a set of official protective cases if they buy at these pop-up stores.
The OnePlus 6 is expected to be priced around $550 although the official price is not yet revealed. Marquee features include water resistance, a glass back with possible wireless charging, and a notch-sporting display.
