Late June set to be best time to get yourself a OnePlus One
The leap from 16GB to 64GB for just $50 is very tempting.
As a result OnePlus has dramatically increased the production of the 64GB Sandstone Black model and is only making the 16GB Silk White model as long as it doesn’t delay the time to market for the 64GB version.
The pricing of the 64GB Sandstone Black model is a crucial factor behind the forecasted demand. At just $349/€299/£269 the OnePlus One is much cheaper than the 32GB version of the Nexus 5 and comes with double the internal storage. The 16GB Silk White model is also very well priced at $299/€269/£229, but that leap from 16GB to 64GB for just $50/€30/£40 is very tempting and is increasing the demand for that model.
OnePlus’ current schedule is now as follows:
- Ready now – 100 for phone smashers
- Mid to late May – Larger batch 16GB Silk White for the first batch of invites
- Early June – Larger batch 64GB Sandstone Black
- Later in June – Increased general availability, people who want it should be able to get an invite without much trouble in June
