OnePlus got a slight jolt when it received the news that CyanogenMod’s exclusive tie-up with Micromax prevented the custom ROM makers from offering support for the One in India. CyanogenMod was one of the biggest strength for the OnePlus One and its customizability features and regular updates set it apart from the rest. OnePlus sure has a challenge on their hands and seems like they are ready to take it head on.
OnePlus today launched the 64 GB variant of its epic One smartphone in India. Answering to the query that many had, the company has also said that it will be bringing out the 16 GB variant soon.
To quench the thirst of the enormous demand for its smartphone in India, the company will be bringing devices in a phased manner. Presently the company has a stock of 20,000 devices in India that will be up for sale today. Following this, the company will be offering 20,000 more devices, within a week and is ready with another 20k depending on demand. Altogether 60000 Indians are going have the satisfaction of owning the flagship killer in December alone.

This OS will be announced this friday, the company is very excited and says that it will be very close to stock Android but will have key features to make it a winner.
OnePlus customers also have been excited about the Bamboo swap cases, the company began selling these covers but had to stop as the customers found them difficult to change with the stock cases. As the company is going to establish service centers in India, it is planning selling the swap covers and offering an installation at the service centre free of charge for consumers.
It sure has been a long wait for the device, and it’s encouraging to see a company take proactive efforts towards making the customers of its devices comfortable. India can be an important market for the company. It is also planning to establish an R&D center in India. This is a good time to be a mobile consumer in India.
