It was one of the immediate problems expected to be seen if the UK voted to leave, but it took its time to appear.

Now, prices of some new phones are rising in the wake of the shock Brexit result.

The OnePlus 3, an unlocked phone you can buy direct online that can match any high-end Android device, has gone up from £309 to £329.

OnePlus said the falling value of the pound is the main cause for the price increase.

Accessories for the phone will stay at the same price. The price increase takes place from July 11th in the UK store only, with the phone staying at the same price of €399 here.
