Last week, Amazon India had carried out “Fab Phones Fest Sale” between April 11 and 13. During the sale various popular phones such as Apple iPhone XR, OnePlus 6T and Vivo V15 Pro were selling at reduced prices. The shopping festival is now over, but the OnePlus 6T phone is still selling with reduced price tag of Rs. 34,999 on the retailer site. It remains to be seen whether the smartphone will continue to sell with Rs. 4,000 discount ahead of the rumored May 14 global launch date of OnePlus 7.
On Amazon India, the OnePlus 6T models such as 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage are respectively selling for Rs. 34,999 (~$504), Rs. 37,999 (~$547) and Rs. 41,999 (~$605). At launch, these variants were respectively introduced with pricings such as Rs. 37,999 (~$547), Rs. 41,999 (~$605) and Rs. 45,999 (~$663).
In China too, the OnePlus 6T variants are selling with around 400 Yuan discount. There is no confirmation on whether the discount pricing of the OnePlus 6T on Amazon India is a permanent price cut or a temporary one that will continue until the stock lasts. Buyers who couldn’t purchase the OnePlus 6T at reduced price during the recent “Fab Phones Fest Sale” on Amazon India can still take advantage of the price cut.
