The entire Android world has long waited for the OnePlus One release date, but for months the device has only been available in limited markets, at limited numbers. However, previous rumors claim that the Andoid ‘flagship killer’ will hit India soon.
Of course, most tech geeks and enthusiasts know about this already, but it looks like the manufacturer wants to excite fans more. According to a report by GSM Arena , the Chinese brand has partnered with Amazon India and launched a teaser image of the device.
Of course, the silhouette image in the teaser is that of the OnePlus One, and it still looks as sharp and gorgeous as it was first announced more than half a year ago. In case you missed the OnePlus One’s unveiling, it featured a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, a Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and an option for 16GB or 64GB of built-in memory. Other specs include a 13MP primary camera, 2MP front shooter, and CyanogenMod 11s based on Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
The cool thing about this device is that in spite the pretty high-end (back in March, these specs were high-end) specs, the device only costs $400.
Unfortunately, there are still no reports how much the OnePlus One will cost in the Asian sub-continent. OnePlus is desperately demanding attention now, and after a decent launch of the device in some markets this week, the Chinese manufacturer wants to infiltrate the second top mobile phone market in the world. Still, the Android flagship killer will face tough competition in India, thanks to on-going effort of fellow Chinese brand Xiaomi, who has partnered with Flipkart to sell the company’s Mi3 and Redmi handsets.
We still have to mention local Indian brands who have been doing pretty well, even against the likes of Korean tech giant Samsung. These companies include Karbonn, Micromax and others. Can the OnePlus One keep up?
