In a major strategical shift, OnePlus has just announced that it will be setting foot on the offline retail landscape in India. The Chinese phone maker is all ready to sell its flagship OnePlus 5 through Croma from September 19. The company announced its tie-up with Croma retail outlets and hopes this will boost the sales of the OnePlus 5. Earlier to this, the only way one could buy OnePlus devices offline would be through 2 official stores. The company has opened these OnePlus Experience Stores in Delhi and Bengaluru.
