OnePlus has confirmed (opens in new tab) the company will be raising the price of the OnePlus 3 in the UK, thanks to the pound weakening over the past number of years. Currently priced at just £309, the OnePlus 3 will set purchasers back £329 from July 11. The drop in value post-Britain's Brexit referendum vote has led OnePlus to reluctantly make its handset more expensive to purchase.

You will still have a few days left to get the OnePlus 3 for £309 if you act quickly. From the announcement (opens in new tab):

"Given the effects of the unstable markets on our extremely thin margins, we're reluctantly going to have make some small changes to our pricing structure for the device. In practical terms for our customers, this means that from July 11, 2016 (that's next Monday), the OnePlus 3 will be £329 in the UK."

It's worth noting that only the OnePlus 3 is affected. Pricing for accessories will remain the same.

  • A £20 difference isn't to bad is it? Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's hardly the point. Posted via the Android Central App
  • THE POINT IS WE HAVE CONTROL OF OUR BORDERS AGAIN!
    WE HAVE OUR COUNTRY BACK! OUT AND PROUD!! (NOT IN THAT WAY!)
  • So you're in the closet and ashamed "in that way"? When we leave we'll have less control, not more. All those people that are being held in Calais... when we leave, what incentive do the French have to keep them there? Rafts and Chunnel tickets are cheaper than refugees. I know you made them the fifth largest economy over us, but do you think they'll show gratitude? Posted via the Android Central App
  • The agreement between the UK and France regarding the migrants in Calais has nothing to do with the EU. It is a private treaty between the two countries. So yes, we WILL have more control over our borders.
  • I know just the guy to get you all started on the wall. It will be a magnificent wall. We can loan him to you as long as you promise to not give him back Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's a two for one deal. They can have the woman also, then we can start over. Time to take the mulligan. Posted from Nexus 6
  • You got that right! Posted via the Android Central App
  • No complaints from me. Leave Obama in for an extra year and start over with the election cycle

  • We will still have to be part of the single market and allow free movement of people just like Norway.Who have to pay into the EU for the privilege.Also the refugee problem will just get a whole lot worse as the French will not likely allow British immigration to set up on their side of the channel.But hey ho...

  • LOUD NOISES lay off the crack.
  • Yes, now we're free for our politicians to start stripping away workers rights and turn Britain into a tax haven sweatshop.
  • Yeah that's pretty much it. The establishment now has full power to exploit the rest of us. Plus if Brexit was so great, why have all the leaders of Brexit run away like total cowards? Not very impressive.
  • It will not cost me more. Although I am not looking to replace my phone at the minute, this phone is one that I would have considered. However, I will wait until the price comes down again as the pound recovers, or look for alternative products that may offer better value. Will probably hold off until I see what the next Nexus and N offers. Posted via the Android Central App
  • IF, IF the pound recovers. People seem to think it's a certainty, it's not. Also this will effect pretty much everything down the line. All companies have costs, and those costs are passed to the customer. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Are you certain it will effect pretty much everything? Yes companies have costs, but not all companies deal in goods priced in US dollars, so no, not EVERYTHING will be effected. The dollar could collapse when ISIS drops a bomb on the US.
  • Wow, thanks man. Posted from Nexus 6
  • Don't worry, ISIS aren't going to drop a bomb on the US. They favour moving their explosives over ground. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Cool, I feel better now. Posted from Nexus 6
  • No I'm not certain, no one is. That's the problem. But the pound isn't just performing poorly against the dollar but also the euro and yuan, and we import a lot of stuff from Europe and China. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't know about you, but most of the stuff I own was made in China or anywhere but the UK. You can already see a small increase in Amazon UK prices for goods sold by Chinese sellers. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No I can't be sure it will recover. If it doesn't then I probably will keep hold of what I've got now or look for cheaper alternatives. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This seems like a good price, given that the pound will go even lower. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wonder if poundland will go out of business? One-pound-fiftyland or twopoundland just don't have the same ring... Posted via the Android Central App
  • But, but...what will Ashens do? Posted via HTC 10
  • Haha, I... don't know what that means. Posted via the Android Central App
  • He's this UK-based YouTuber/comedian who reviews stuff from Poundland and other cheap shops in a hilarious way. You should check some of his videos out. Posted via HTC 10
  • Ah, "ten dolla haul, y'all" style. I will watch him, and judge him. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh man, Poundland is a way better name than Dollar General. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hell yeah it is. Posted from Nexus 6
  • Wow,isn't it convenient that they've given advanced notice to spur sales.Funny about their other goods remaining unchanged in price.Can anyone say marketing B.S.? Posted via the Android Central App This just in!You still have a few days,if you act quickly!What a joke.
  • Or perhaps the accessories doesn't have as tight margins as the handset itself.
    Thinking hasn't become illegal with brexit. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No it hasn't,so think a little bit yourself and recognize the advanced notification as the sales ploy it is.A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're possibly right that they announced it to boost sales, but their price per unit HAS gone up in the UK, so I'd say it's safe to assume the price increase is legit. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Regardless of whether it's marketing bs or not, the sad truth is they started making less money from UK sales pretty much instantly, since they're not based in the UK. I see no shame in them trying to then shift more devices. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Still £10 cheaper than it would cost to get it from within the EU.
    So basically what i'm saying is F#%! OnePlus
  • Well worth the extra few quid.. Us Brits have stuck 2 fingers up to the establishment and put democracy and sovereignty over money. Project fear is still in full flow. But we will not waiver. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'd rather be Project Fear than Project Total Denial.
  • Good for you my friend, we can't all have the same opinions right? Have an awesome day. Posted via the Android Central App
