OnePlus One to be available without invite, bamboo cover and power bank coming too

OnePlus One easily takes the cake for being one of the most value-for-money devices on sale. You need an invite to purchase the device and this approach has helped the brand maintain a vibe a exclusivity around its flagship smartphone. The company seems to have established itself pretty well in India and has just made some announcements which are expected to please the Indian customers.


To start off, the OnePlus One will henceforth be available in the country without any invite. Both the 16GB and 64GB variants will be available through open sales. Smartphone OEMs who initially launch their devices through flash sales also resort to selling their devices through open sales once the device gets established in the market and the hype around it starts to see a southward revision.

The company has also announced that the much awaited Bamboo covers for the device will get launched  in the country towards the end of this month. The pricing for it hasn’t been announced but we expect the to be pegged below Rs 1,500 mark. The company launched its 10,000 mAh portable power bank in US last year and it will now get launched in India alongside the Bamboo covers. It comes with lithium-polymer batteries and takes about 5.5 hours to charge.

It features two USB ports to facilitate charging of two devices at a time. Shaking the device gently makes the battery indicator LEDs light up. OnePlus has added additional safety features in it which allow for prevention against overcharging and consequent overheating. The company  has also announced a 50 percent discount on its accessories which include JBL E1+ earphones, flip cover (white) and premium matte screen protector.

@shashi OnePlus One is a good phone
the cynogen makes it more fluid
Secondly indian 4G LTE support makes the deal more sweeter
In that range if u need a branded phone Samsung Galaxy S4 is good which is available at for 18k

@Shashi: Another competitor to Infocus M2 has been launched today via Snapdeal with the 95% same Infocus M2 specs,Lolipop & Gorilla Glass 3 protection,so if u don’t mind going with Micromax brand then go buy it.But it’s all your choice!

No bro Oneplus has several hardware issues,u will hav to be a lucky guy to get an undefective product from Oneplus.And OPO is outdated and has not got 64 bit processor to be future proof.Instead of buying OPO buy Zenfone 2 u will get 4GB Ram,64 bit Intel’s processor built on 22nm,32GB ROM and many features,more over Asus has brand recognition and has good service centres.Only Indian prices for Zenfone 2 are yet to be known,stayed tuned till April 23rd!

Yes,bro you’re right I am the one in Gogi site.Moto E 2nd Gen 3G Version has no front LED Flash and no OTG Support as per Gogi’s review.If u want a simple 4G Dual sim-Dual Active Smartphone with 720P 5.5 Inch and don’t care about FHD Display/NFC then u better opt for 2GB RAM-ZE550ML Variant of Zenfone 2 which will be priced less than 13k and Zenfone 2 has support for NTFS Format Support,OTG and many features that are future proof but the entire decision is up to u,choose wisely!
