When OnePlus 2 was officially unveiled, the company had announced two variants of the smartphone — 16GB variant with 3GB RAM and 64GB variant with 4GB RAM — worldwide, but only the 64GB storage variant was launched in India. However, the company has had a change of heart, and it has launched the 16GB storage variant of the OnePlus 2 in India. It is available exclusively from Amazon.in for Rs. 22,999, and you can buy it without a need for any invite.
It seems illogical that consumers would want to buy 16GB variant of the OnePlus 2 when the 64GB variant is available for just Rs. 2,000 more, especially since the device lacks a microSD card slot for storage expansion. However, I’ve personally known some people who had bought 16GB storage variant of the OnePlus One last year, so there would be consumers who buy into this lower-priced variant of the device.
In other news, OnePlus has announced that people interested in the OnePlus X won’t require an invite code to purchase the smartphone from the company’s international website. The Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system-based OnePlus X is now invite-free in India, forever. The OnePlus X didn’t get as much attention from consumers as the company would’ve wanted, but it’s the first style-conscious smartphone from OnePlus, and all people care about these days is high specifications at lower price. However, Indian consumers would still need invites to purchase the OnePlus X.
The OnePlus X features a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a glass-and-metal body, a 13-megapixel primary camera with phase-detection autofocus and 1080p video recording, an 8-megapixel secondary camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage space, a hybrid dual-SIM card slot that can intake a microSD card in the second SIM slot, 4G LTE, three-way notification slider switch, and a 2,525 mAh battery. It is available in three colours: Onyx, Champagne, and Ceramic, and all of them were available in India at some point of time.
