OnePlus has struck a deal to sell its One smartphones on Flipkart.com as well as in India, after initially selling the phones exclusively via invites and then through Amazon.com’s India website.
The black sandstone 64GB version of the One is available on both sites at identical prices, 19,998 rupees (about $313), a 2,000 rupee discount to its earlier price. Flipkart is also offering an exchange plan that could fetch a buyer up to 10,000 rupees off on the new phone, depending on the make and working condition of the old one being exchanged.
The 16GB version is selling for 18,998 rupees on Amazon.in.
Fans of OnePlus’s design, which includes the sandstone-like back cover that brought it a degree of uniqueness, are eagerly awaiting the OnePlus 2 that the company is widely expected to release next month. The One set a strong benchmark with its premium, flagship-level, features at a much lower price than some competitors.
Among the features are a 5.5 inch IPS display, 3100mAh removable battery, 4G support, 3GB RAM with up to 64GB internal memory, and 13MP/5MP cameras. The phones run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor.
The company also announced recently that the new phone will ship with the Snapdragon 810 processor in version 2.1 that fixed overheating issues, which were reported for this chipset. The new phone -- and all its future versions -- will also be the first to officially run on the company’s own OxygenOS. The previous versions ran on the CyanogenMod, a software developed by the firm Cyanogen Inc.
