If a shiny new OnePlus 3 is on your shopping list, you're no longer limited to the company's website in the UK.

O2 announced today that is will sell the midrange Android phone in stores and online starting Thursday, September 29. This will make it the first network in the country to sell a OnePlus device.

The phone will sell for £329, which is slightly higher than the original price of £309 (OnePlus has blamed the increase on Brexit). Service plans start a £28 per month for 500 minutes of call time, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.

Since OnePlus started making phones in 2014, the company has gradually loosened its sales model from an invite-only process. Networks in Singapore sold the OnePlus 2 and Finnish network Elisa started selling the OnePlus earlier this month.

Released earlier this year, the OnePlus 3 has a sharp 16-megapixel camera, a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and a quick-charging battery. When CNET's Lynn La reviewed the OnePlus 3 last June, she named it as one of the best budget phones you can buy.
