While OnePlus 3 is set to launch on June 14 in all markets, the company has announced a flash sale in China on June 6. Around 1000 units of OnePlus 3 will be sold in the flash sale and one can grab it at the price of Rs. 30,600 (CNY 2,999).
In a tricky twist, the company has specifically mentioned that the pricing is not final. If the price of OnePlus 3 comes lower than CNY 2,999, the difference will be paid to the customers. On the other side, if the pricing comes higher than CNY 2,999, the customer needs to pay the difference. The flash sale customers will also receive bonus gifts worth CNY 249 and 6 months of broken screen free replacement insurance worth CNY 49.
