The company claims that it achieved a record of Rs 100 crore in sales with the first 10 minutes of the first preview sale for the One Plus 6 in India, which was held on Amazon yesterday. The smartphone comes loaded with a price tag of Rs 34,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, Rs 39,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option.
OnePlus claims that it amassed Rs 100 crore revenue from sales of the OnePlus 6 in the first 10 minutes of its preview sale in India. So, simple mathematics on the assumption of the 6GB RAM variant that comes with a price tag of Rs 34,999 throws out 28,572 units of the said variant of OnePlus 6.
Now, considering the fact that only a handful of users, probably around 5 percent, will consider buying the top variant of the OnePlus 6 that comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for a price tag of Rs 39,999. Divide that with the total units mentioned above and you will the figure of 1,428 units.
This simply means, based on above assumptions, OnePlus would have sold between 27,144 units of the 6GB RAM variant and approx 1,428 units of the 8GB RAM variant during in the first 10 minutes of the preview sale.
However, being day 1, there are always chances that the share of the top end phones could be higher, taking the total handsets sold to a lower figure. Either way, Rs 100 crores is an amazing figure for day 1 sales and marks a strong beginning for One Plus 6, a handset that we among many others, consider slightly underwhelming, considering the high expectations and loyalty One Plus has built for itself in India too. Especially with the firm moving to the cycle of launching the +T version some six months after the launch, it will be really interesting to see if the momentum sustains, or potential new buyers go into wait and watch mode.
