Right after the UK voted to leave the European Union, #OnePlus posted a warning of sorts to its fans that the #OnePlus3 might soon be expensive given the fluctuation in the British Pound (GBP) compared to the U.S. Dollar (USD). Well, it hasn’t taken long for that day to finally arrive as OnePlus has now announced that the handset will be expensive by £20 to cost £329 ($425). This isn’t a major increase, but the handset is more expensive now anyway.
The changes will come into effect starting July 11, so there’s still some time till OnePlus forces the price increase. So if you were planning to get the handset, make sure you do so before Monday.
We completely understand OnePlus’ reasoning behind doing this as they are in a business where making profits or at least breaking even is necessary for the survival of a company. Given that OnePlus is already offering a pretty decent set of hardware for a fraction of the price, we’re sure the customers won’t have a problem with the price increase, especially since it’s not OnePlus’ fault.
