The phone that got snatched was a Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S10 Plus, the journalist confirmed in one of his follow-up tweets. While no one can be sure if the masked man recognised the specific model number and the company, he certainly seems to be hell bent on stealing a OnePlus 9 Pro only. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus costs almost double than a OnePlus flagship at the time of its launch, and it got a price cut some months back, bringing it to Rs 40-45k price segment. The OnePlus 9 Pro has been introduced recently in the markets at a starting price of Rs 64,999.
Even when successful with his phone-snatching, the masked man didn’t seem to be interested in finding use for any other phone. Maybe he got lots of them stashed away somewhere as incidences of phone-snatching are not new and keep on getting reported in the Delhi NCR region.
