If you were planning to buy a OnePlus One anytime soon, then you may want to hurry. The prices of the OnePlus One will soon go up, says the company. In a statement released by OnePlus, the company announced that the falling value of the Euro has forced it to raise the prices of the OnePlus One in the European Union. The new pricing is €299 (about Rs. 20,000) for the 16GB Silk White version, while the 64GB Sandstone Black variant will sell for €349 (about Rs. 23,000). According to OnePlus, the price of the One will also increase in India, but the company has not yet finalised on the pricing policy for the country. OnePlus though confirmed that we can expect an announcement soon.
In Europe, the new pricing for the OnePlus One will go into effect from March 25, which means that users can still buy at the old pricing till then. In addition, OnePlus also said that the next version of the OnePlus One, that is, the OnePlus 2, can be expected in the third quarter of this year.

The device offers top end specifications, but at a very affordable pricing. The One is currently priced at Rs. 18,999 for the 16GB Silk White version, while the 64GB variant costs a mere Rs. 21,999.
Further, back on March 4, OnePlus founder Carl Pei had told reporters at the MWC 2015 about the company’s next device. Pei said that OnePlus will be launching a new device in April and that it will not be a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. Instead, OnePlus is expected to enter a whole new product segment next month. The company recently celebrated its one-year anniversary by alunching a new power bank.
