OnePlus tries to take advantage of Samsung’s hype, but fails

As we reported this Wednesday, the OnePlus account in the US has released a teaser with a date and time. This announced a reveal to be made on August 11 at 3 p.m.

East cheep brought with it a short video hinting that OnePlus might launch a foldable or dual-screen smartphone. And the fact that the reveal was made at the time of the Samsung event brought “water to the peak.”

OnePlus foldable assumption was just a dubious and limited discount

It was immediately noticed that there were only two OnePlus 9s in the video, which was confirmed. Unfortunately, OnePlus lost a good reason to be in its corner, having launched a dubious promotion.

In fact, OnePlus announced that its OnePlus 9 would now be available with a 50% discount on its official website. A great promotion, right? The problem is that it is restricted to the United States, and to those who have the T-Mobile operator. But it doesn’t stop there.

Half off. Literally. Get the OnePlus 9 for 50% off.

Also, buyers who really want to use this promotion cannot buy the smartphone for half the price ($ 375). This money is only repaid to them within 24 months in the form of credit.

In practice, OnePlus hinted that it would launch a new product. But I just wanted to take advantage of the rumor around Samsung’s folds to announce an ad with an unattractive promotion. The attempt was maintained and the fans of the brand did not like it, as can be seen in the comments to the publication.
