You may be able to finally get your hands on a OnePlus 2 without waiting in line for an invite, but you’ll now have to spring for the pricier model. According to TechRadar, OnePlus has announced that the OnePlus 2 with 16GB of on-board storage has been pulled from U.S., U.K. and European online stores. This means the only variant available in these regions is the model with 64GB of internal storage, which costs $389/£289. A OnePlus spokesperson told the publication:
According to feedback we have seen much greater interest in the 64GB version of the OnePlus 2 in North America and Europe, so we have removed the 16GB version from those store pages as of this week. We will continue to offer the 16GB version in limited markets such as India, where customers are more interested in an option for different amounts of storage.
This news shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise. With no microSD card expansion available, having only 16GB of storage is very limiting if you aren’t keen on storing things in the cloud. The move will, however, upset potential OnePlus customers, as many folks value a cheaper price point over more storage.
