OnePlus 9: prototype offered for sale on eBay for exorbitant price

As we have already made known, some photos of what is believed to be the OnePlus 9 circulate on the internet. Thanks to these records of that prototype, it is possible for us to gauge how aesthetically the next top of the range of the Chinese company will be.

It is now known, thanks to Mishaal Rahman, that this same prototype went on sale on eBay. The editor of the XDA forum was the one who found this listing on the online sales platform and made the case known via his Twitter page.

OnePlus 9 prototype on sale for $ 3,000

As Mishaal Rahman made known, the author of this ad put his prototype of the OnePlus 9 up for sale for a modest $ 3,000. A value that gives this product almost a status of relic or collectible.

Someone with early access to one of the OnePlus 9 prototypes wanted to make a small fortune by trying to take advantage of someone’s ingenuity. However, that ad has already been removed from eBay, although it can still be viewed through the platform’s archive.

Ad author may have legal issues

Whoever placed this ad on eBay forgot to omit an important part of the equipment’s photos. In publicly shared images it is possible to see the serial number of that prototype and this may be worth some problems.

It should be noted that prototypes are usually cataloged with independent serial numbers. This is a transversal maneuver that allows companies to know which of their employees has a certain product in their possession.

With the serial number of this OnePlus 9 prototype publicly exposed, the company will quickly know who owned that model. Once its holder is identified, OnePlus will certainly want to take the necessary consequences.

Interestingly, the first known images of the OnePlus 9 do not show the serial number of the prototype in question. This means that the first photos were of a different model or whoever created this ad on eBay was careless and exposed information that should not.
