It is easy to forget that OnePlus is a new company when you consider the kind of buzz it has created since its inception. To put into perspective the kind of year it had, OnePlus has released a report card, which gives us an idea of the shipments, revenues, and the markets it targets among others.

Without revealing the exact number of smartphones it shipped, OnePlus revealed that India accounted for seven percent of its total shipments last year. East Asia including countries like China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong led the way with 39 percent of shipments, followed by Europe (32 percent) and North America (22 percent). The company didn t reveal the exact number of shipments, but back in November last year it had revealed that it had managed to sell 500,000 smartphones and aimed at reaching the one million mark.

As for revenues, the company generated more than $300 million. This is impressive when you consider that the company only has one smartphone in its portfolio, which it started shipping in June last year.
The infographic also includes other interesting pieces of information including the total number of Facebook fans (1.1 million), OnePlus forum users (450,000), and the total number of team members (88).
OnePlus made its debut in the Indian market back in December last year by launching the One for Rs 21,999. But the debut has been anything but smooth, and the company is currently embroiled in a court battle with Micromax after it turned out that Cyanogen entered into an exclusive agreement with the latter while offering its software to the Chinese brand. Micromax filed a complaint of alleged infringement as it owns exclusive rights to use the Cyanogen software in the country.
Micromax s exclusive deal with Cyanogen caused a lot of confusion prior to the launch of the OnePlus One and the Yu Yureka in India. The software maker had to finally issue a statement saying that it would continue to support One handsets globally, but in India it would only support the Yu Yureka.
OnePlus recently announced the OS that will be replacing Cyanogen on the Indian smartphones called Oxygen. The custom ROM is based on Android Lollipop, and is likely to be launched on February 12.
