OnePlus One is currently sold "at a loss" in Europe, prices will be increased next week

OnePlus One is currently sold
OnePlus today announced that, starting next week, its One smartphone will be more expensive in Europe. That's because, "due to the current value of the Euro", the company is "now selling devices at a loss" in EU.

At the moment, you can get the OnePlus One 16 GB for €269 in Europe, while the 64 GB version can be bought for €299. Starting March 25, prices will go up to €299 and €349, respectively. That's not a huge increase in price, but OnePlus still thought it would be a good idea to announce customers about it.

OnePlus One prices won't be increased in other parts of the world. Moreover, OnePlus says it won't increase the prices of its accessories, no matter where you're buying them from.

While the OnePlus One will soon be 1 year old, it's still a great device for the money you're paying for it, even with the upcoming higher prices. You should check out our OnePlus One review to find out more about the handset (which was released in 2014 as a "flagship killer").

Later this year, OnePlus will launch a new One smartphone, which will likely also offer lots of high-end features at an accessible price.

Demand is probably sinking for this "flagship killer". They are trying to boost demand and after 1 week offset the decline in demand with higher prices.

'OnePlus still thought it would be a good idea to announce customers about it' Yeah not sure if they wanted to let the costumers know or wanted create a panic about price rise so that the customers can be fooled into buying.

If this had been available to buy a year ago instead of being impossible to buy anywhere then I think it would have sold plenty.

The problem with the One Plus is that in short there will be affordable phones with similar specs and price, and the correct availability. Read there: ASUS Zenfone 2.

As someone who likes to tweak it's phone, and try custom ROM's etc, I'd never buy that Asus Zenfone 2. Even though it's pretty bang for the buck, there'll never be a lot of support from the community. Communty support-wise, Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU's above anything.

Oh! I fully agree with that. I have a rooted Nexus 5. But that doesn´t mean I won´t buy it for my father! LOL

Are you that dense? What does marketshare have to do with the value of the Euro?

The argument profits vs. marketshare. That is what Android fanboys scream....Free and Open OS, Market Share, Consumer Choice, Customization, No iTunes Sync!!!! That is why the quartlerly numbers don't lie....Android is normally sold at break even or at a loss. OnePlus just demonstrated this... Sometimes in business you can't please the consumer.

Anyone out there looking for a premium end device still wants this thing? It's a nice midranger at best.

All which is last year components. Its quality of the materials sourced, not spec sheet quantity.

1080p, no SD card, android 4.4, no NFC, no IR blaster, non user replaceable battery. I wouldn't pay more than $250 off contract for a OPO let alone 300 euros.

Given that the device is already a year old, it's safe to say that it belongs to the upper-midrange category
