OnePlus 6 crosses 1 million units globally, company launches 'Community Celebration Season'

  • A million people bought this $530 Android-powered iPhone competitor in less than a month

Granted, Apple sells more nearly one million iPhones every single day: In its most recent quarter, that company posted sales of 77.3 million units sold.

Granted, a million units sold pales in comparison to the volume of devices sold by Samsung or Apple, but there's a lot to be said about the approach OnePlus has taken with its product offerings. On June 15, OnePlus has announced the Community Celebration Season which will offer 12 bomber offers for 12 days.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau told Business Insider in a recent interview that the latest "flagship killer" from the Chinese company has eclipsed one million units sold.

Beginning with the biggy - anybody who buys a OnePlus 6 between now and June 26 will have the chance to win a second OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6 also does not feature industry-leading waterproofing because "you're not going diving with it" although it works fine in the rain and can even play music in the shower, Lau said. And for good reason, its smartphone OnePlus 6, in which the model Silk White was already out of stock in France, can boast of having sold a million copies in less than a month. The offers include Rs 2,000 cashback on Citibank Credit & Debit cards and no-cost EMI on all popular brands for three months. "The community is a big part of OnePlus' success", says the company. Now we have established a big record within 22 days of launch. And it has also been criticised for privacy concerns, including collecting users' personally identifiable information without permission and for leaving a "backdoor" in some of its phones. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with Adreno 630 GPU.

The price of OnePlus 6 is a bit higher than the OnePlus 5T and starts at $529.
