OnePlus has announced its new buyback program for the Indian users, which allows users to purchase the recently launched OnePlus 5T smartphone by exchanging their old smartphones. To offer this new program, the China-based company has partnered with Cashify.
The company will be accepting old smartphones from selected companies only, which include OnePlus, Apple, Asus, BlackBerry, Gionee, Google, HTC, Huawei, Intex, Karbonn, Lenovo, LeEco, LG, Micromax, Motorola, OPPO, Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, Vivo, Xiaomi, and Xolo.
Also, the buyback program is available only in select cities across the nation, which includes Ahmedabad, Agra, Bangalore, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gandhinagar, Gurgaon, Howrah, Hyderabad, Indore, Lucknow, Jalandhar, Kanpur, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Mohali, Mumbai, Noida, Nagpur, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Puducherry, Panchkula, Surat, Thane, and Vadodara.
To use this program, the user will first have to submit the details of their old device in order to receive a quote. If the quote is satisfactory, the user can then proceed to place an order for a new OnePlus 5T on the company’s official online store — oneplusstore.in. Once the new phone is delivered, the Cashify team will contact the user to fix an appointment. Once your old smartphone is verified, the Cashify representative will give the cash at the time of pickup.
The OnePlus 5T was launched in November last year, as a successor of the OnePlus 5. It comes with a 6.01-inch Full HD+ Optic AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top. Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and is available in two variants — 6GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage and 8GB RAM with 128GB of internal storage.
The device comes with a 16-megapixel primary sensor at the back, with a wide-angle lens and large f/1.7 aperture. Compared to the OnePlus 5, the secondary telephoto lens on this one has now been replaced by a 20-megapixel sensor with f/1.7 aperture for better low-light photography and improved depth-of-field. The phone is powered by a 3,300mAh battery which also supports Dash Charging.
