Customers and fans of the OnePlus brand can now openly buy the OnePlus 5 models direct from OnePlus via its website. This could be a gladsome news for those who missed out on the preorders. The open sales of the flagship device include both the 6GB RAM version and the 8GB RAM version but it is obvious demand for the 8GB RAM version is higher. While the 6GB RAM model is available to ship immediately, the 8GB RAM can only ship within the next 14 days meaning buyers will have to wait a little longer while the company replenishes its stock. Both offers also come with the same discount offer on some accessories like the DASH car charger, DASH power bundle, protective casing and more.
