OnePlus One gets a lot cheaper ahead of successor launch

Well, the morning couldn't have been better for OnePlus fans.

The company have announced that the 64GB Sandstone model of the popular OnePlus One phone will now be available for $298 (£195) and users won't have to shell out the standard $349 (£228) for the gadget anymore.

At the same time, 16GB Silk White Model will also come a lot cheaper at $248 (£162) which was $299 (£195) earlier.

The price cut comes as no surprise to us given that the official release of the OnePlus Two has been pushed to the third quarter of the year. With a flurry of gadget launches taking place this year, OnePlus' hopes to cling on to its fan base with their last year's gadget would obviously hinge on a price cut.

The new prices will be applicable from the 1st of June.

Last week, OnePlus launched an online teaser which had the online community sit up and expect an official launch of the OnePlus Two. However, dispelling the expectations, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said that the new gadget will launch by the third quarter of the year.

Even though we are talking about last year's tech, the OnePlus One at the revised prices will be to good a deal to ignore. Weighing in at a rather bulky 162g, the phone features a 5.5 inch HD display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 3100 mAh battery, LTE capability, an internal storage of up to 64GB and a 3GB RAM.

It also contains a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP front camera and runs on Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS.
