While all the talk is about the upcoming OnePlus 2 flagship, a new report is spilling the beans on the sales figures of the OnePlus One, which is the company’s first and current flagship offering. As per this report, OnePlus managed to sell 1.5 million units of the device, which is relatively low compared to other manufacturers and was expected given the infamous invite system used to purchase the device.
Although the handset has been available in a couple of open sales since then, it was an invite-only offering for very long. Given the low profit margins on the OnePlus One, the company had to ensure that a large number of units were sold and it seems like the company has succeeded to some extent. The information was made public by Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus during an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
The OnePlus 2 will be officially unveiled this Monday on the 27th of July and is also expected to be sold through an invite system, although the company has promised some changes in the process this time around. It will be interesting to see if OnePlus will manage to sell more units of the OnePlus 2 compared to the predecessor.
