You can trade your Samsung flagship for a OnePlus 2, but will you?

In a move as ridiculous as its invite system, OnePlus has introduced a promotion which lets you exchange your Samsung flagship for a brand new 2 smartphone. Dubbed Take Your Edge Off, this promotion only applies to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5.

The Chinese company thinks at least 50 people from all over the world will be foolish enough to trade in their highly advanced Quad HD display-equipped smartphones for the comparatively mediocre OnePlus 2 handset. It will hence be offering this deal to just those many ‘lucky’ people.

The Samsung flagships which will be collected by the company will be donated to Hope Phones which is a charity that brings medical technology to those in need. What is preventing the firm from itself donating its 2 smartphones to the same charity instead of asking for high-end Samsung phones is still not known.

Those interested – if any – need to fill out a small form with their personal details. If you are one of the 50 chosen ones, OnePlus will contact you via email and provide you with the instructions for shipping your Samsung device. Once the shipment is examined, a brand new 2 handset will be delivered to you.

Here’s a neat look at the main specs of the OnePlus 2:

– Display: 5.5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Oxygen OS (Android 5.1 Lollipop-based)
– Memory: 3GB/4GB RAM, 16GB/64GB storage (non-expandable)
– CPU: 1.8GHz octa core Snapdragon 810
– Cameras: 13MP OIS rear, 5MP front
– Battery: 3300mAh
– Size: 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85mm
– Weight: 175gms
– Connectivity: Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C

This promotion of the OnePlus 2 will have its applications close on October 18. If you still don’t have some food for thought, you should know that the 2 costs Rs 24999 in India, while all Samsung flagships are sold at upwards of Rs 35000.
