OnePlus India has partnered with Reliance Digital to make OnePlus devices available offline via Reliance Digital outlets. This partnership will start with the launch of OnePlus 6T in India. Currently, consumers can purchase OnePlus devices online via Amazon, OnePlus’s official web-store and offline via OnePlus experience stores.
Under the deal, OnePlus devices will be available at all Reliance Digital stores across India at the same price they are available online. The consumers will also be able to take advantages of any promotional campaigns being run by Reliance Digital.
“The premium smartphone segment in India is steadily growing, and OnePlus seeks to more effectively tap into this space, with a nifty strategy combining both online and offline platforms for a holistic reach. This partnership with Reliance Digital will equip OnePlus with a more robust physical presence, enabling the brand to cater to its increasing user base through multiple touchpoints across cities,” Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India, said in a press release.
According to earlier reports, the new OnePlus 6T is expected to come with a teardrop style notched display along with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It will be the first device from the company to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with Adreno 630 GPU. It will come with 6GB/8GB of RAM along with 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage.
It is also being said that the OnePlus 6T will be the first smartphone from the brand to feature a new fast-charging method, instead of its Dash Charge technology. Separately, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the company’s next flagship will run Android 9.0 Pie.
