OnePlus One to Be Available in India Without Invitation on Wednesday
It’s worth noting that this is the second open sale of the OnePlus One within two weeks. OnePlus offered One smartphone without invites last week as well.
An open sale for the One smartphone means that consumers will not require any invite to purchase the handset during the sale. The Chinese company as before has not revealed the number of units that will be up for sale on Wednesday; which means the handset will be available to purchase without invite till stocks last.
Last month, the OnePlus One smartphone went up for sale in its first open sale in the country.
The 16GB Silk White OnePlus One (Review | Pictures) will be available on Amazon India at Rs. 18,999 while the 64GB Sandstone Black variant is priced at Rs. 21,999.
The open sale for the OnePlus One on Wednesday might be the last sale without invite before the company announces revised pricing for the India market. OnePlus recently hinted the prices in India may be revised soon.
OnePlus has already hiked pricing of its “2014 flagship killer” smartphone, the One, for EU regions earlier this month citing the decline in value of the Euro, we can expect a slight hike in pricing of the handset in India as well.
To recall, the OnePlus One features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 1080×1920 pixel resolution and offers a pixel density of 401ppi. The display boasts of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
