With the launch of the OnePlus 3, the Chinese brand has come a long way since we first heard the phrase, “Never settle”, back in 2014. Its latest smartphone comes with an overwhelming 6GB RAM, the latest Snapdragon 820 processor and the already tried-and-tested killer feature, Dash Charging.
Clearly, the company is catching up with the big guns. And it’s definitely made it easier to get your hands on the devices since 2014. Kudos to that.
The company’s latest offering in India is similar to what online retail giants such as Amazon and FlipKart are doing. OnePlus has launched an exchange offer for the OnePlus 3, where customers can swap their old smartphone for a new OnePlus 3 and get a discount of as much as 100 per cent. Yep, you read that right.
Currently, the device is being sold for Rs27,999 or about Dh1,500. With the offer, customers could even get the device for free. Of course, the exact amount of the cashback depends on the condition of the current smartphone, which will be evaluated by Cashify, the company’s programme partner.
To initiate the offer, customers are requested to visit Cashify’s webpage to check the replacement value. Following this, customers are required to order the phone from Amazon.in and provide the details of the order on the Cashify website. They will also have to input key details of their old smartphone, check pin code details and confirm the buyback price and pickup time for their old device. Once done, a representative from Cashify will arrange to come and examine and if the requirements are met, pay the evaluated amount.
As of now, the offer is available only in Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Pune, Faridabad, Bengaluru, Ghaziabad, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Lucknow and Ahmedabad. More cities are to be added to the list soon.
