    That seems totally logical... Raise the price for an old model.
    Are they trying to pull an Apple move here?

    Yes, I think it is less about a price raise, and more about the strength of the US Dollar now compared to the Euro and other world currencies from when the initial prices were set. The OPO is $299 for 16Gb and $349 64Gb US.

    $1 US dollar is now $. 93 Euro. Almost equal now. Big change from months ago.

    It's a pretty fair, and goodwill, thing of them to give users another week with the original price though :)

    And I don't just say that because I'm a fan or that their blog post said soo ;) I read that Apple is raising prices, or have already started to, by 100 Eur.. But that's just something I heard :p

    Guess there is no choice, should be due to inflation here. Otherwise they wouldn't make any profit at all.

    Although I already have one opo I want to buy a new one, hopefully without yellow band this time. What you think are the chances? :rolleyes:

    Will buy before 25. March then.

    Euro countries will get a 50 euro price increase for the 64GB version and a 30 euro price increase for the 16GB..

    WHY!!!
    Hardware is getting older.. things should become cheaper.. not more expensive!!

    Yes it's true, I've seen a thread talking about price increases but this one is certainly the case. As I'm writing this the Euro to the U.S. Dollar stands at 1.07. It's a hard pill to swallow for fellow European fans but OnePlus is selling the OPO at a loss in Europe and they need to regain some of that money back even if it means just barely breaking even.

    The New price for the OPO are as follows:

    300 Euro for the 16GB model up from 270 Euro
    350 Euro for the 64GB model up from 300 euro


    As a side note these price increases will take effect on March 25, and the last time you can purchase it at the old price will be this Tuesday or before March 25 if you have an invite.

    Instead of creating a post, before think, would you make a different decision if you were one plus and you were loosing money in a market such as Europe, and don't be biased, think more with a business maind. :)

    Exchange rate fluctuations are out of their hand. Euro has been losing value heavily vis-a-vis the US dollar. Most likely most of the parts they buy are denominated in US dollars or Chinese Renminbi, which is almost pegged to the USD. They are selling phones at a loss for current Euro prices. They don't have a choice. :(
