OnePlus 2 gets a permanent RM400 price cut

You can also get the difference back if you bought one in the past few weeks

OnePlus has announced that it's permanently knocking RM400 off the price of its flagship OnePlus 2 handset.

The Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone which impressed us with its bang-for-buck value and snappy fingerprint scanner in our review initially launched at RM1,855, making its new RM1,459 price tag all the more tempting. The company also abolished its invite system for the handset last December, letting anyone who wanted one snap one up easily.

If you're feeling bitter about buying a OnePlus 2 recently then you might be in luck - OnePlus will refund the difference if you bought a OnePlus 2 within the last 15 days. The company is also offering free cases and covers with each purchase ahead of Valentine's Day.

There's no mention of a price cut for the mid-range OnePlus X (unsurprising given its more recent launch), but if a RM400 difference between the two handsets isn't too much for you to swallow, then the OnePlus 2 could be a decent choice if you're after a solid handset that won't cripple your wallet.
