There was general discontent when OnePlus announced the new OnePlus 6 with a display notch and a glass back. Some OP fans claimed they'd never purchase the phone, but it appears they were a vocal minority. The company has just announced that the OP6 sold 1 million units in just 22 days, which is much faster than its previous phones.
You're probably wondering how that compares to those past phones. OnePlus says it took both the OnePlus 5 and 5T three months to hit 1 million units even with their lower prices. So, the OnePlus 6 is apparently selling three times faster than the company's 2017 flagship phones. OP previously sold out of the special edition white OnePlus 6 in a day.
OnePlus didn't break down sales per country but did note that sales were up last year by 139% in North America. It expects similar growth this year. If you were hoping the notch and glass design were temporary, think again.
