The OnePlus 3 went on sale yesterday but eager fans in seven markets around the world had the opportunity on Wednesday to buy the phone at pop-up events in places like Paris, London, Mumbai and right here in New York City. We decided to stop on by to see what the scene was like, and it’s hopping.
Upon arrival we noticed that fans had lined up around the block. One elderly lady stopped me on the street to ask what was going on. “Is this an Apple phone launch?” she asked. That could easily be taken as a compliment for OnePlus, whose fans are anxious to get inside to see and even buy the new flagship smartphone.
We’ll be here for a bit adding photos as the event proceeds, and even buying one of our own OnePlus 3 units. Keep checking back for new photos.
