The contest requires interested buyers to fill a form and answer a question. The winners of the contest will receive their invites on February 23, indicating that the device may be arriving to India next week.
This 16GB variant will further improve competition between Xiaomi and OnePlus. Xiaomi is conducting flash sales of its 16GB and 64GB Mi 4 variants on February 24, and it is interesting to see OnePlus handing out invites for its 16GB variant just a day before. With this announcement, OnePlus One, just like the Mi 4 will also be available in 16GB and 64GB variants.
The OnePlus One 16GB variant will be sold in the similar invite-only model on Amazon India. Considering that the OnePlus One 64GB variant is sold at Rs 21,999 in India, it is safe to say that the 16GB should be priced less than Rs 20,000.
Apart from the storage space, other specs will remain the same. It will flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM. Additionally, it also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,100mAh battery.
