The OnePlus One offering high-end specs at ridiculously low price and due to this grabbed huge attention. The “flagship killer” device was launched back in April this year, and could soon be available in India.
According to OnePlus One official forums, the company has seen a lot of interest generated in India. An administrator writes:
Over the past months, we’ve seen tremendous interest from India, despite not having launched there. We have many customers in India purchasing to the US, and then asking a friend to bring it over or trans-shipping it. Some have even purchased the device from scalpers. Looking at our traffic, India ranks number 8, outweighing many of our launch countries.
It’s safe to say that we’re interested in India. Being such a young company, we also know that India is a huge challenge. We’re all about creating a great user experience from end to end. We understand that there are lots to learn, consider and set up before we can officially launch in this vast country.
Though this is not an official confirmation and didn’t talk about the launching time but will soon launch in India due to lots of interest.
