OnePlus 6 shatters records as over a million units sell out in first three weeks

OnePlus has revealed that they managed to sell more than one million units of its latest OnePlus 6 flagship smartphone in less than a month. Specifically, the company achieved the feat in 22 days.

Here’s what CEO Pete Lau said:

Since before OnePlus launched, we’ve always taken care to listen closely to our users and deliver smartphones which combine design and power. The OnePlus 6 is our most balanced handset yet, combining style and speed for a unique experience. Our approach has been rewarded by returning users and new customers alike, and we’re grateful to the OnePlus community as the OnePlus 6 has become our fastest selling handset ever

For comparison, both OnePlus 5 and 5T took around three months to cross the one million milestone. The company also revealed the 256GB OnePlus 6 has proven to be the most popular variant of the device, although sales figure for the model wasn’t revealed.

OnePlus also shared some other OnePlus 6-related tidbits, like over 15,000 people queued across 26 pop-ups in 11 countries across the world, and the OnePlus 6 launch event sold-out with over 1,000 tickets bought in under 10 hours.

“This year, OnePlus has added a number of retail partners with major operators in Europe; Telia (Sweden), Three (Denmark), and Belsimpel (Netherlands), and most recently signing a deal with Bouygues (France). In addition, the OnePlus 6 is available on Amazon in Italy, Germany, France and Spain.”
