At the launch event of OnePlus 7T, OnePlus Global Head of Software Product Growth Szymon Kopec took to the stage to announce OnePlus Pay, Oneplus Cloud Storage and OnePlus Care. Which is like out side the box for everyone coz no one has expected anything like this. OnePlus is working on its services and has ensured that the features will be rolled out soon, probably by next year.
After Samsung and Apple, OnePlus is the next company to introduce the mobile payment service. Now, speculations about the OnePlus Pay being an alternative to Google Pay or other UPI-based services are high. However, Szymon Kopec did say that OnePlus Pay will be unlike anything that the Indian market has seen so far. Hence, chances are that OnePlus could pull off something like Samsung Pay, which uses a special MST chip to carry out debit card transaction right from the phone. Or, OnePlus Pay could rely on the NFC chip for payments.
Whatever it is, we might get to see it when OnePlus launches the next generation OnePlus 8 series phones sometime next year. However, OnePlus Pay isn’t the only new feature coming to Oxygen OS. A couple of new features were announced and the primary one that will benefit OnePlus users is going to be OnePlus Cloud Services.
Along with the OnePlus Pay, OnePlus care is also coming out in the market for all the OnePlus smartphone in the market. OnePlus has listed some of its features like –
- Extended warranty
- 50% off on battery replacement
- Buy back offers
