OnePlus 2 spotted at Lazada
Just a couple weeks in to official debut, the self-proclaimed 2016 Flagship Killer – the OnePlus 2 – has been spotted on Lazada bearing a price tag that’s significantly higher than its original SRP.
OnePlus 2 specs:
5.5-inch In-Cell Full HD Display, 401ppi
Snapdragon 810 v2.1 64-bit octa-core CPU
4GB LPDDR4 RAM
64GB internal storage
13MP rear camera w/ OIS, 1.3 micron pixels, Laser AF, dual-tone flash
Slow-mo video at 120fps, 4K video recording
5MP front camera
Dual-SIM, Dual-LTE (nano-SIM)
4G LTE, 3G HSPA+
WiFi 802.11 a/c
Fingerprint sensor (up to 5 unique fingerprints)
Alert Slider (hardware switch for notifications settings)
OxygenOS (Android 5.1.1 Lollipop)
151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85 mm
The OnePlus 2’s original SRP is pegged at $389 or Php17,796 in the current conversion rate. However, the one listed on Lazada is currently being sold in Lazada for Php21,799 (perhaps taxes and VAT added to the hike in the price).
Of course, we’ve also have to account for shipping fees and other charges the seller has to shoulder (for legit purposes or otherwise) in order to get the handset here in the country. Thus, some buyers wouldn’t mind shelling that extra cash, especially since the OnePlus 2 (or its predecessor for that matter) isn’t available locally.
For that extra four grand on top of the handset’s SRP one would expect that handset will be covered with some kind of warranty. But sadly, the listing that we saw on Lazada doesn’t come with a warranty, so if anything happens to it, you’re pretty much stuck with Php22,000 paper weight or resort to unofficial means of getting it fixed.
