OnePlus wants to steal the thunder from Xiaomi in India; 16GB One on invite-free 1 hour sale

How often do we see this, a Chinese brand trying to steal the thunder from a compatriot? More often than you’d imagine!

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 and the Mi Pad just got announced in India, and it appears as though another Chinese OEM — OnePlus — didn’t like the fact that it loses on footage. Which is perhaps why the company has just announced an invite-free time limited (one hour) sale of the OnePlus One 16GB Silk White version.


Gizchina News of the week

The company announced the same via a Facebook post. The OnePlus One was originally launched almost a year back in April 2014, and it comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, 3GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, and a 3100mAh battery. The phone is available in 16GB/64GB storage variants, the former among which is currently on an invite free sale in India.

    By information received, OnePlus changed the legal advisors and lawyers team in India, for reactive a counterclaim vs Micromax and Cyanogen for breaching the contract between OPO and Cyanogen, signed before the exclusivity contract with Micromax. One Plus is strengthening its position in India.

      Good for them… It’s not their fault Cyanogen went and did silly things in my opinion…

    This phone is not a bargain anymore.
    Unless someone is a heavy gamer it makes more sense to go with MT6752 phones that perform almost as good as this one for 2/3 of the price. Plus you get few extras like dual Sim, SD card slot, removable battery.
    And if I’m correct those features are required in a market like India.

      Yes sir absolutely right most people in India look at sd card slot and removablr battery ( am not sure how often they open their back cover) rathar than going by specs

        your mainstream SD card, which is 32gb, is still less than the 64GB of OPO.
