Flipkart exclusive sale of OnePlus 3 at Rs 18999, OnePlus says no guarantee for the product
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei tweeted about the discount sale mentioning Flipkart Co-Founder Sachin Bansal for which neither Flipkart nor Bansal has given a clear reply
Online sales giant Flipkart is selling the OnePlus 3 smartphone as part of its Big Shopping Days sale for Rs 18,999 against its official price of Rs 27,999. The huge discount offer of Rs 9000 even took OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei by surprise when OnePlus was having an exclusive sale with Amazon only. The sale of OnePlus 3 in Flipkart have started from December 18.
You should catch a glimpse of facts before go out and scream loud about the offer.
Pei tweeted about the discount sale mentioning Flipkart Co-Founder Sachin Bansal for which neither Flipkart nor Bansal has given a clear reply. When sought for a comment, Flipkart told Gadgets 360 that "Flipkart is a marketplace which helps sellers connect with customers across the country. All our sellers are mandated to adhere to stringent guidelines. The prices and discounts for all our sales are decided by the participating sellers and brands."

The vague statement by Flipkart did not say whether the OnePlus 3 smartphones being sold on its site are genuine or not. It appears that the limited number of OnePlus 3 smartphones will be sold on Flipkart from third-party sellers, but without an official warranty.
OnePlus came up with a warning to interested buyers saying, "We have an exclusive partnership with Amazon in India. We advice customers to purchase OnePlus products only through official channels as we cannot guarantee the authenticity of the products sold elsewhere.
OnePlus 3 had a very short lived life on limelight, by giving way for the OnePlus 3T just a few months later. Reports say that OnePlus 3T has managed to improvise on a phone which was already good.
The price drop in Flipkart cannot do any good for the users if they are really waiting for something special. Make sure that you are on a good deal with a warranty before you go for it.
