While the flagship from Huawei, Apple, and Samsung is crossing the €1000 mark, there is a growing interest in the affordable smartphone segment that offers similar specifications at half the price point. One such company that managed to dominate the market in a short time is none other than OnePlus.
The company based out of China recently managed to break into the top five global brands in the premium category for the first time. Thanks to the strong sales of OnePlus 6T in India, China, and Western Europe.
Ahead of the launch event in London on October 10, the smartphone manufacturer is doing some marketing shenanigans in a bid to showcase its charging technology.
If you’re in London on Thursday, October 3, and your phone is about to run out of battery, you can send a tweet with #WarpChargeSOS and the OnePlus rescue vehicle will be on the way to save the day.
Having said that, when a user who goes by the name Andy Boxall tweeted whether the battery rescue service is only for OnePlus devices, the company replied as follows
“All citizens are equal! Everyone deserves to experience the speed of Warp Charge. Give us a location, and we’ll solve your battery emergency!”
What is Warp Charge 30T?
It is OnePlus’proprietory charging technology that provides a day’s power in just 20 minutes. For example, the new OnePlus 7T features Warp Charge 30T, giving you up to 70% power in only 30 minutes. So even in an emergency, you’ll be ready to go in no time.
As you can see from the image, they are literally using a fire engine with OnePlus and Warp Charge branding. The OnePlus #WarpChargeSOS vehicle will be on tour, saving the day in London on October 3, Amsterdam, and Utrecht on October 5, and Helsinki on October 9.
