Putting an end to all speculations, OnePlus today announced that there wouldn’t be any price hike of the One in India. The company had hinted earlier that due to the steep rise in the customs duty on imported mobile devices in this year’s Union Budget, the price of the 16GB and 64GB may see a slight rise, but the company has officially confirmed that the One will continue to be available for users in India at Rs 21,999 for the 64GB model and Rs 18,999 for the 16GB model.
