OnePlus has finally made its debut in India with the launch of its much awaited "Flagship Killer" Smartphone One. The Smartphone is exclusively available on Amazon.in at Rs. 21,999 for those who have an invite to purchase.
OnePlus is following this typical invite based model where only those people will be able to get their hands on the device who have an invite either earned via the contests being run on the OnePlus forum or have received a shareable invite from someone who has purchased the One.
After Xiaomi, OnePlus is a new Chinese player in the Indian market and One is their self-proclaimed "Flagship Killer" Smartphone which claims to have the best specifications inboard with an affordable price tag. And at Rs. 21,999, having a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (401 PPI) and 3 GB of RAM combined with the Quad-core power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU clocked at 2.5 GHz with internal memory of 64 GB (no expandable memory though), it's not a lie either. Is it?
The One also proudly boasts a 13-megapixel six lens Sony sensor which has a shutter speed of only 0.3 seconds. It also sports a distortion free selfie sensor of 5-megapixel.
The OnePlus One runs Cyanogen 11S which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat but as an effect of the recent partnership of Cyanogen with Micromax, OnePlus had some serious implications which resulted in the discontinuation of the Cyanogen OS with the One in India in the near future. Fortunately, the current device ships with the Cyanogen OS but unfortunately, it won't receive any future updates. But OnePlus has promised that it will release a custom build of Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Indian fans this December lessening the Cyanogen jolt to an extent.
