Although it is a brand from China, but OnePlus is somewhat in favor of the international market over home, when this model was launched 1 day before in many countries (including Vietnam). compared to China.

OnePlus “shows off” its achievements in China

When OnePlus’ biggest rival in Vietnam is … OnePlus
OnePlus’ performance in Vietnam is clearly more, very, much more modest than China. And, we can list many reasons why the OnePlus 8T is so inferior in the Vietnamese market.
Although OnePlus is a well-known brand in many countries, it is still quite new in Vietnam. Up to now, this company has just entered Vietnam in less than 2 months. Therefore, it will be difficult to convince users to spend nearly 20 million VND for a product from a brand “wet feet” like OnePlus.
Equipped with a lot of technology, but the OnePlus 8T is actually nothing too impressive compared to the OnePlus 8 Pro elder that OnePlus sold in Vietnam last month. In fact, the OnePlus 8 Pro is still OnePlus’ most premium device, and the OnePlus 8T is just behind.
– The price of 18.99 million of OnePlus 8T is considered not really competitive, when it is on par with Samsung’s high-end products, which have a great advantage in branding in Vietnam.
However, the reason that we think the biggest impact on the sales of the OnePlus 8T is the other half of the Vietnamese phone market: portable products. Currently, the OnePlus 8T portable from China is being sold by many small businesses for about 13-14 million, 5 million cheaper than the genuine product.
OnePlus 8T portable costs about 12-14 million in Vietnam.
Know that genuine OnePlus 8T comes with many incentives such as 1 million VND donation, OnePlus Buds headset, case; However, many OnePlus users in Vietnam, which are so far used to buying portable products, still decide to choose a more economic option.
Thus, the competitors that OnePlus must compete in Vietnam are not only Samsung, Oppo or Xiaomi, but also the OnePlus machines in the portable market. In particular, when OnePlus is considered a brand for tech lovers, and tech lovers often aren’t afraid to buy a laptop, this will be a big hurdle that OnePlus needs to solve if it wants to play. development in Vietnam.
