If you were thinking about getting your hands on the cheapest model of the OnePlus 2, you might be out of luck. According to TechRadar, the Chinese phone manufacturer has pulled its 16GB model — available at a starting price of $329 or €339 — from its online store in North America and Europe due to a supposed lack of interest.
If you are interested in snagging a OnePlus 2 in those countries, you will only be able to purchase the more expensive 64GB model, which still comes in at a relatively cheap $389 or €399 compared to other smartphones from leaders like Apple and Samsung. The 16GB model will still be available in other markets like India, where sales of the phone were much stronger.
But if it pains you to shell out the extra cash for the 64GB model, then it might be time to look for a new cheap phone deal.
