OnePlus revealed last month that it will be selling the One handset in India with a special invite system. The company also announced that it will be launching the 64GB variant of the handset, and it will be priced below Rs 25,000.
Right before Amazon posted the teaser, the handset maker posted a contest on its forums, giving 100 people a chance to win the India-specific invites for the handset. Amazon s teaser suggests that the phone will be exclusively sold through the e-commerce giant. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer had previously announced that it was looking to team up with carriers and local retailers to make the process smoother to Indian users. Aircel teased a partnership between the two earlier this month.
It will be interesting to see if the phone is sold exclusively through Amazon India. If that happens, OnePlus will become the latest company to team up with an e-commerce giant to ship its phones in the country. Motorola, Xiaomi, and Jolla took the same path with Flipkart when they launched their smartphones in India.
The OnePlus One is often referred to as the flagship killer smartphone. The phone packs in a high-end set of hardware while sporting an impressive design. In terms of hardware, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch display with 1080p screen resolution. Underneath the device sits a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It packs a 3,100mAh battery to keep the device running. On the camera front, it has a 13-megapixel shooter at the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The phone runs on the CyanogenMod ROM CM11s with several customized features.
