“When we started OnePlus a little over half a year ago, we needed to race against time and focus on what we knew best. Our team primarily consists of North Americans and Europeans, which is why we launched there first.

Over the past months, we’ve seen tremendous interest from India, despite not having launched there. We have many customers in India purchasing to the US, and then asking a friend to bring it over or trans-shipping it. Some have even purchased the device from scalpers. Looking at our traffic, India ranks number 8, outweighing many of our launch countries.

It’s safe to say that we’re interested in India. Being such a young company, we also know that India is a huge challenge. We’re all about creating a great user experience from end to end. We understand that there are lots to learn, consider and set up before we can officially launch in this vast country.” [From official forum].

OnePlusOne Spec

  • ¬†2.5 GHz quad-core /¬†3,100 mAh battery
  • Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC chipset
  • 3 GB RAM.
  • 5 MP front camera
  • 13 MP Sony rear camera sensor
  • Custom¬†CyanogenMod.

OnePlusOne price is where it gets interesting : 16GB model costs $299 and 64GB costs $349. Though the current way to buy one is invite-only, we are guessing that OnePlusOne price in India should be around 16-18K.
