Noida thief doesn't settle for stolen phone as it isn't a OnePlus 9 Pro, returns device to owner
Even thieves are now smartphone connoisseurs

If you live in a big city in India, chances are you’ve either had your device snatched out of your hands or definitely know someone it’s happened to. It’s the harsh reality of life in a big, Indian city but for one, Debayon Roy, a thief snatched his Samsung Galaxy S10+ right out of his hands but ended up returning the phone. Why, you ask? Well, it looks like the thief was a smartphone connoisseur and actually wanted a OnePlus 9 Pro (review) instead. Yes, you read that right. A report on MySmartPrice, states that the incident took place in Noida in the NCR region. 

Man steals Samsung phone, returns it to owner as it wasn't a OnePlus 9 Pro

A legal journalist by trade, Debayon Roy was exiting the Secor 52 Metro station in Noida, UP when the said thief snaked out of the shadows and snatched his phone. Roy was in the process of sending a message and was not ready for his device to be whacked. He ran after the thief but was surprised to see the man running back towards him. The thief then handed over Debayan’s phone back to him and hit him with the classic, “Bhai mujhe laga One Plus 9 pro model hai.”. Which essentially translates to, “Brother, I thought that this was a OnePlus 9 Pro.”. We assume that Mr Roy’s world must have caved in on itself after such an experience. And, it looks like Samsung took a hard L in this incident as well. 

OnePlus 9 Pro was wanted by thief who stole a Samsung Galaxy S10+

To be fair, we did rate the OnePlus 9 Pro rather highly when we reviewed the device. The OnePlus 9 Pro is priced starting at Rs 64,999 for the 8GB+128GB variant and Rs 69,999 for the 12GB+256GB storage option. The OnePlus 9 Pro also features a 6.7-inch QHD+ (3216x1440 pixels) resolution AMOLED curved display with LTPO backplane technology and supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
