Getting your hands on the OnePlus One is not as straight forward as going to Amazon India and hitting the Buy button. The smartphone is being sold via a special invite system, similar to what it does globally. Here s a guide on how you can get the special invite with other relevant information.

To recap on the flagship device s specifications, it flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage.
Besides that, you also get a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,100mAh battery. On the software front, the smartphone runs on the CyanogenMod ROM CM11s with several customized features. The company hasn t revealed the price yet but has assured that it will be below Rs 25,000.
If Xiaomi s debut in India is anything to go by, the OnePlus One will be lapped up by buyers. But the company s debut has been anything but smooth. After announcing the device in the country, the company was backstabbed by Cyagonen, Inc. The software maker recently inked a deal with Micromax to exclusively license its software to the forthcoming YU series of smartphones.
In other words, the move essentially takes the rights from OnePlus to sell CyanogenMod-powered handsets in India. The company has however assured the potential buyers of its commitment and also revealed plans to release its own customized Android build in February next year.
