64GB OnePlus 2 gets big price drop to make up for axing of 16GB version

The OnePlus 2’s 64GB version has been given a huge price drop in the US and Europe – letting you get flagship phone from the burgeoning Chinese company for even less.

A few weeks ago techradar revealed the OnePlus 2 would no longer be on sale in Europe or the US, but it seems the company now wants to make up for it with a price-drop.

OnePlus has taken the price of the OnePlus 2 down from US$389/£289 (about AU$590) to US$349/£249 (about AU$492).

That means it’s now almost the same price as the original 16GB OnePlus 2 that cost US$329 or £239 (about AU$464).

Happy customers

The price drop means the 64GB OnePlus 2 is now even more affordable dropping a whole £40 in the UK and $40 in the US.

The original reasoning from OnePlus was “a much greater interest in the 64GB version of the OnePlus 2 in North America and Europe” so the company kept the 16GB on sale in countries such as India.

When OnePlus initially dropped the 16GB OnePlus 2 we were a bit let down there wasn’t as much choice out there, so this removes one of our big criticisms of the handset.

Paired with free shipping for all phone orders it means getting the OnePlus 2 is a lot cheaper now – plus you can also buy it invite-free.
