OnePlus One breaches the 500,000 sales mark

OnePlus One

The OnePlus One smartphone has reportedly sold over 500,000 units already, despite being available through the infamous invite only system. The company only recently began the pre orders of the smartphone, which was again marred by server issues. The company hopes to expand into bigger markets of Asia to push the sales forward over the coming months.

The co-founder of the company, Carl Pei, seemed very optimistic about the future and claimed that the company will be pushing to sell 1 million units of the smartphone before the end of 2014. This could be a tough ask for the company given the emergence of newer flagship offerings from major OEMs.

However considering the price of the handset, there are still plenty of customers interested in getting the device. The smartphone is priced at $299 for the entry level 16GB model and $349 for the 64GB model. It will be interesting to see if the company will breach the 1 million sales mark by the end of 2014 and opening pre-orders for the smartphone is certainly a step in the right direction.
