China company OnePlus launched on Tuesday its first device OnePlus One smartphone in India priced relatively lower at Rs 21,999 than expected Rs.25,000, despite a major setback of losing Cyanogen Mod partnership for its units in India.
The OnePlus One is exclusively available for purchase on Amazon.in from today, December 2, 2014, on invite only. In India, it has partnered with HCL Care for service of the phone.
OnePlus One has some excellent features according to reviews in media including a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080P display, 13MP camera with F2.0 aperture and Sony image sensor, 5MP front camera, 3100mAh battery, 4G-support and and NFC.
However, it runs CyanogenMod 11S, developed by Cyanogen that has entered into an exclusive partnership with Micromax in India and ditched OnePlus One, which is scurrying for cover to develop its own team of android developers so that its own final build OS would be released by February 2015 for its Indian market OTA updates.
