OnePlus tweaks One production plans in effort to get 64GB model out earlier


Late last month, OnePlus shared an update on its production schedule for the One, giving interested consumers an idea of when they might be able to purchase the company’s flagship smartphone. Today OnePlus made a change to its plans, though, and its decision ought to please folks with large storage needs.

OnePlus now says that it has decided to push back production of the 16GB Silk White One so that it can produce the 64GB Sandstone Black model sooner. OnePlus had originally planned to get a large batch of the 16GB model out in mid to late May with the 64GB model to come in early June. Now those plans have changed, with the 64GB version expected to be available as early as late May.

While the $299 16GB OnePlus One is a pretty good smartphone deal, paying $50 to move up to the 64GB model seems like a no-brainer if you can spare the extra cash. That’s why it’s no surprise to see that demand for the 64GB OnePlus One is strong, and it’s nice that OnePlus is adjusting its production schedule to get the more capacious model out sooner. Of course, the fact that the invitation system is still intact means that not everyone will be able to buy that 64GB OnePlus One right away, but at least those lucky invitees will have a better chance at snagging a 64GB unit.

Are you thinking about buying a OnePlus One? If so, which model do you have your eye on?

    Can’t wait… Can’t wait…

    Btw I dont like those squared icons it have by default, I am assuming those can be changed right? Even the lockscreen ones.

    • surethom

      Totally agree, it make the phone look cheap & tacky, stock android is better looking, in my opinion. Hopefully able to change, as this is cyanogen, fully adjustable.

    • masterpfa

      Theme engines and or a launcher should see to that

    • Ss

      Yes…..we will be able to make any change because of the highly customizable Cyanogenmod11S

  • surethom

    Very nice news, but this does show that companies still think users are happy with 16gb low storage i.e. samsung. But the majority of users if they have the choice (i.e 16gb then a month or so later 32gb launches) go for at least 32gb & 64gb is fantastic at this price point.

  • MyMilan

    Waiting for the 64GB version. Incredible smartphone and incredible value.

  • steve

    My note 2 screen is cracked so I can’t wait till this puppy is out and since there know so card slot a 64 gb is a know braine. It’s great to see the 64 gb is only 50 bucks more. Samsung and htc like to charge 200 more and that’s why I am done with them. That and there skins

  • Noel

    Good move..I am assuming many ppl will go for the 64GB model. Better to future proof ur storage capacity.

  • aranea

    Value wise good but not like the hype predicted especially with the invitation system. I lost interest awhile ago.

    • donger

      Yeah, will wait for the G3 or Nexus 6.

  • Drake

    I would buy 2 of them right now if I could.
