Illustrating that OnePlus 3 is only sold on Amazon, Pei tweeted to Flipkart’s Sachin Bansal and wrote, “@_sachinbansal brother, what’s this? We’re exclusive with @amazonIn.” OnePlus 3, the company’s flagship device was launched this year itself. Recently the company also launched the latest smartphone OnePlus 3T along with new upgrades.
