OnePlus 5 Is the 'Fastest Selling' OnePlus Device Ever, Says Carl Pei

Highlights

  • OnePlus Co-founder announced the milestone
  • OnePlus 5 becomes fastest selling OnePlus device ever
  • OnePlus 5 launching in India on Thursday

OnePlus 5, the Chinese company's new flagship smartphone, was launched on Tuesday, and it has hit a milestone within a day of launch.

Carl Pei, OnePlus Co-Founder, has revealed that the new OnePlus 5 smartphone has become the fastest selling OnePlus device ever. Unfortunately, Pei hasn't shared any numbers to support his claim but is likely that it's based on the response OnePlus 5 has received in pre-orders. Soon after the launch, OnePlus 5 was up for pre-orders in select regions with an Early Drop system which will see shipments begin on Wednesday itself. "The first numbers are in, the OnePlus 5 is our fastest selling device ever," Pei wrote in a tweet.
