New Delhi: Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus is set to enter the booming Indian mobile market. There are already many Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Lenovo, ZTE, Gionee, Oppo and few others, that are eyeing the growing Indian handset market and have been received quite well by the people.
OnePlus will launch its smartphone in India but the company hasn't revealed the price and date yet. Rumour has it that the phone will come at a competitive price tag. The smartphone is already retailing in the US where it is priced at USD 299 for 16GB and USD 349 for 64GB.
In India, the 16GB smartphone, when launched, could be priced under Rs 20,000 which would put it directly against the Xiaomi Mi 3. Considering there are no 64GB Android phones in the Indian market, the consumers can only expect the 16GB model that will hit the Indian stores.
The smartphone sports a big 5.5-inch LTPS IPS display having Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera that offers a shutter speed of 0.3-seconds and a 5-megapixel front camera.
The phone has the latest Android 4.4 KitKat software. The phone is powered by the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5GHz with Adreno 330 GPU.
