OnePlus has been received with warmth all over the world and the story hasn’t been any different either as far as the India-specific operations of the same are concerned. The OnePlus in 64GB guise has been launched in India for Rs 21,999 and the price tag has made it pretty popular among the ones looking for a device with flagship specs at half the price. Carl Pei, the co-founder and director of the company is pleased with the response that the company has got in India and is already seeing it as one of its strategically important markets.
He has gone on to state that India will be among the few markets which will receive its devices in the first wave of launch. He has said “We have some big plans in the works, India. And while it took a while for us to get the One to you, we promise that won’t be the case in the future. India will be one of the first countries to see our newest products in the future.” India also happens to be the only market where OnePlus will be setting up a fully fledged office outside China.
The company is planning a local office for us which is said to house a GM, Research and Development team, Logistics and Marketing team. The company’s plans hit a roadblock when Cyanogen announced that it won’t be providing support for OnePlus devices in India. But it has announced that it will be seeding a custom made ROM based on Android 5.0 Lollipop for its Indian users soon. With the likes of Xiaomi and OnePlus seeing India as one of the most important markets, the Indians are surely in for a treat.
