We saw the official release of Xiaomi’s flagship smartphone Mi3 earlier this week. Now, fellow Chinese company OnePlus is slated to foray into the Indian market. OnePlus’ official blog administrator Carl Pei has hinted that the company has plans to enter Indian market, inciting excitement among many Indian fans. “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.
The One is OnePlus’ first ever smartphone and it’s aimed squarely at the same demographic as the Xiaomi Mi3 in China and the Nexus 5 around the world. I got the 64GB international version, currently available via invite only. It sports a 1080p HD 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon quad-core processor, CyanogenMod OS, 13MP back camera, and a 3100mAh battery. My version usually costs US$350, but I had to pay a bit extra to get it here in mainland China. The 16GB international model normally costs a very modest US$299.
