Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is all set to launch its new smartphone, the OnePlus 5 in India on June 22. Apart from the launch event, the company has also announced a contest in the country, where it will be giving away 5 new OnePlus 5 devices to lucky winners. OnePlus has named the contest as “TheChosen5”. Under the contest, the company will host challenges across social media websites including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. OnePlus will post five challenges every day via the social media channels, and users can complete if they want to win the latest flagship device. The OnePlus contest is already open from yesterday and will go on till June 19.
If you wish to be a part of the contest, you can participate across all the three major social media portals. OnePlus has said that it will improve their chances of winning the new OnePlus 5 smartphone. The company has said that participants will have to play all the challenges in #TheChosen5. But, initially, users will have to ‘like’ and ‘follow’ the OnePlus India Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. As a part of the new challenge, the company has asked the users to sign up for the OnePlus 5 keynote event, as well as set an SMS Alert for the launch of the phone. If you want to do this, you have to go to the oneplusstore.in/launch2017 page. The global launch for OnePlus 5 takes place on June 20, two days before the India event in Mumbai.
After the user subscribes to the SMS alert, they will get a dialog box confirming this. A user has to take a screenshot of that dialog box and post it on the comments section of the challenge post. The caption needs to read, “I just subscribed to the #OnePlus5 Launch Event,” and a user needs to tag OnePlus India and use the hashtag #TheChosen5 and #OnePlus5.
Additionally, interested participants should tag five of their friends to boost their chance of winning the smartphone. OnePlus is also giving away invites to the launch in Mumbai at Rs 999. OnePlus fans who are interested in this can purchase them from the launch website itself.
The Invite along with a OnePlus t-shirt will be shipped immediately, while the rest of the goodies will have to collect from the event itself. Essentially, if you pay Rs 999 to attend the OnePlus 5 launch, the company will give you a welcome pack worth Rs 10,000. This includes a OnePlus 5 voucher worth Rs 999, and a OnePlus 5 invite code. The fans will also get a OnePlus travel backpack worth Rs 3,990 and OnePlus sunglasses worth Rs 6,000.
Those who get the OnePlus 5 invite code will be able to purchase the phone from the OnePlus Store straight away. The voucher can only be used for purchasing a OnePlus 5 smartphone and has to be used within three days. OnePlus 5 will go on sale on Amazon India at 4.30 pm.
