The teaser image which is currently live on Flipkart further mentions that it will be available in limited quantities and only soft gold color variant of the OnePlus 3 will be on offer. Upon clicking the teaser image, it currently leads you to the product’s page where it is listed as ‘Coming Soon.’
This comes as a big surprise, considering the Chinese brand exclusively sells its smartphones via Amazon India in the country. OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei expressed his surprise as well, in a tweet questioning how Flipkart is planning on selling the smartphone.
As we mentioned, the OnePlus 3 sale on Flipkart was, in fact, a surprise for OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei too, who tweeted to the Indian e-commerce company’s Executive Chairman and Co-Founder Sachin Bansal, saying “What’s this? We’re exclusive with Amazon.”
