OnePlus announced the cloud storage upgrade through a post on the OnePlus forum. As per the details, those who purchase OnePlus 9 Pro and activate Red Cable Life subscription on or before April 30 will get a total of 6TB cloud storage for one year starting from the day of activation.
As mentioned, this storage is inclusive of the upgrade that was announced last week under which OnePlus smartphone users can sign up for any Red Cable Club service plans — OnePlus Red Cable Club Care and OnePlus Red Cable Club Life. The ones who sign up for OnePlus Red Cable Club Life will get 1TB on Life plan, and the ones who opt for OnePlus Red Cable Club Care plan will now get up to 120GB cloud storage. Both plans offered 50GB previously.
OnePlus says that once users have purchased OnePlus 9 Pro, linked the smartphone to Red Cable Club, and activated Red Cable Life by April 30, they will get the updated cloud Storage as well as other Red Cable Life benefits. The additional 5TB cloud storage will be added automatically to the eligible users’ accounts. OnePlus noted that it may take up to 7-14 days for the additional 5TB storage to reflect in the Cloud Service account.
In a related development, OnePlus has also announced that it is holding Red Cable First Sale, under which Red Cable Club members can purchase the OnePlus 9 Pro on March 31 — a day prior to the sale for the general public. The sale will be conducted on both online and offline channels.
On OnePlus.in and the OnePlus Store app, the sale will begin at 8am IST. All Red Cable Club members, including Explorer, Insider, and Elite, can participate in the sale. Offers on purchase of OnePlus 9 Pro include Rs. 4,000 discount for SBI Credit Card and EMI transactions, and up to 10 percent cashback on select American Express card holders.
At OnePlus Experience Stores, members can get the Red Cable Care plan at Rs. 499, that is otherwise sold at Rs. 1,499, on purchase of OnePlus 9 Pro. There is also a Rs. 4,000 discount for SBI Credit Card and EMI transactions. Furthermore, first few buyers will also receive OnePlus x Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Never Settle Edition 2.0 at stores located at OnePlus Nizam Palace, Himayatnagar (Hyderabad), Connaught Place (New Delhi), Brigade Road (Bengaluru), Pondy Bazaar (Chennai) and Jangli Maharaj Road (Pune).
