Never Settle for a backpack that doesn't match your phone.
Update: The OnePlus Gear store is now open, with all of the products on sale until Nov 4 at 6:00 a.m. ET.
Original story: OnePlus is known for its phones and accessories, but now the company is expanding its offering of lifestyle products outside of China with the launch of "OnePlus Gear." Though it isn't yet bringing a full suite of gear to the rest of the world, the new portion of its online store will launch November 3 with bags and t-shirts previously only available at its pop-up shops.
The product offering on Day 1 is pretty simple: two t-shirts, a travel backpack, a travel messenger bag in two colors and a premium leather messenger bag. If you're a OnePlus fan this is obviously a neat way to support the company — though the branding is quite subtle — while also getting a slick, stylish and functional piece of gear in return. I can't speak for the other products, but having used the OnePlus travel backpack for a while I can say it's quite nice.
Never Settle for a bag that doesn't match your OnePlus 3.
OnePlus is wading into its Gear offerings slowly, kicking things off with a 24-hour sale at its online store starting at 6:00 a.m. ET on November 3. The store won't be up for those in India (OnePlus says it's coming soon), but elsewhere around the world you can shop while supplies last.
The products haven't been listed on the OnePlus store just yet, so we don't know what official U.S. and European pricing will be set at, but you can get a good feel for the product features from the Chinese OnePlus website — here's the shoulder bag and the backpack. As far as pricing goes, a direct currency conversion from the Chinese store sets the bags at about $30 and $45, respectively — we'll see how they're priced for sure when the store goes live in the morning.
