Whoops. There goes that OnePlus 3 ‘blind sale’

Although the appearance and price tag of the OnePlus 3 were supposed to be kept secret until June 14, an online store has revealed its design and price.

We were a bit dubious when OnePlus announced that their latest promo stunt would be encouraging their fans to buy the OnePlus 3 sight unseen. The company created a ‘blind sale,’ meaning users could purchase the device without ever laying eyes on it starting June 6. However, the phone wouldn’t be revealed until June 14, meaning customers were essentially buying a black box and being asked to trust OnePlus with the design.

Well, that’s all a moot point now, because OppoMart (at the time of writing) currently has the device proudly displayed in their store with a price tag of $369 and a listing that says it’s currently out of stock. Yes, thanks to a tipster who let us know about the post, even the most fanatical OnePlus fans won’t have to leap before looking when they fork over cash for the OnePlus 3 early. This price differs from the 2,999 yuan ($455) that ‘blind sale’ participants would have paid, so we assume that, as per the terms of the promo, any participants will be reimbursed the difference.

Now you can feel free to take advantage of the 3-month warranty and extra goodies that OnePlus is throwing at people who participate in their promo, and you don’t have to worry about getting a nasty surprise in the design department!

The OppoMart listing also shows the smartphones specs, but we were already well aware of these:Snapdragon 820, 4GB/6GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage, 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED, 3000-mAh battery, and a 16MP rear camera.
