For those living in the UK, and who are unwilling (or unable) to splash out £450 or more for the new OnePlus 5, you might be excited to learn that O2 has announced that it is exclusively offering the new 64GB Slate Grey variant on a monthly contract starting at £34 with an upfront cost of £9.99, giving you 500MB of data, and unlimited texts and calls. The 128GB Midnight Black variant can also be secured for £36 a month with the same upfront cost.
Both are available to pre-order right now and anyone who does so can expect delivery as early as tomorrow, June 22nd. Magnus McDonald, Director of Product and Category Management at O2 said:
"As the only high street retailer in the UK to sell the OnePlus 5, we're proud to be continuing our relationship with OnePlus and bringing our customers OnePlus 5. Demand for the OnePlus devices has exceeded all our expectations and we're excited to see how successful our partnership with OnePlus can be as we continue to move forward".
O2 is hosting a series of in-store events at its Birmingham Bullring, Oxford Street and Manchester Arndale stores starting tomorrow 22, 23 and 24 June respectively. At the events, customers will be able to get hands-on time with the new phone, receive support, win goodies and enter a competition to win a OnePlus 5.
In addition, if you bring along your OnePlus 3T and are on the O2 Refresh plan, you will be able to pay off the remainder of the phone portion of the plan, with O2 even offering £80 for the trade in. O2 also has various Pay as You Go plans on offer for the OnePlus 5, but as of writing only the 128GB variant can be availed on PAYG with an upfront cost of £513.99.
