When the OnePlus 2 launched back in August, the device was available in both 16GB and 64GB variants, giving would-be buyers two pricing options. Five months later, though, the cheaper model is being pulled.
OnePlus has confirmed that it’s no longer selling the 16GB OnePlus 2 in North America and Europe. “According to feedback we have seen much greater interest in the 64GB version of the OnePlus 2 in North America and Europe, so we have removed the 16GB version from those store pages as of this week,” a OnePlus spokesperson told TechRadar. “We will continue to offer the 16GB version in limited markets such as India, where customers are more interested in an option for different amounts of storage.”
The 16GB OnePlus 2 cost £239 in Europe and $329 in North America, while the 64GB model is £289 in Europe and $389 in North America. Despite being $60 cheaper, though, it appears as though customers didn’t feel that 16GB of storage was enough for their needs. That’s understandable, because as phones become capable of capturing higher quality photos and video as well as playing more graphically intensive games, users are able to store less and less content on their 16GB phones.
Did any of you OnePlus 2 owners opt for the 16GB model, or are all of you rocking the 64GB flavor?
