It was about time OnePlus got an individual that would radiate the brand’s philosophy perfectly and who better than Robert Downey Jr (RDJ) himself.
Coming fresh off his success from Avengers: Endgame, RDJ quickly revealed he’ll be the new face of OnePlus. But this is exclusively focussed for OnePlus’s home country of China and India primarily.
We’ve believed in creating exceptional experiences for our community. The common ground in our ideologies & values convinced us that no one else could better reflect what we stand for.

RDJ isn’t a stranger to endorsing phones. For a whopping $12 million deal, he was roped in by HTC six years ago to promote their range of phones, The Verge reported.
Afaqs reported Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus saying, “We at OnePlus, believe in having a laser focus in everything we do and in doing whatever it takes to create an exceptional experience for our community. Working with Robert Downey Jr, we see that these ideologies are reflected in him as well; in his creativity and dedication. This synergy has us convinced that nobody could represent what we stand for better and we are delighted to welcome Robert Downey Jr into the OnePlus family.”
