Recently there has been quite a few rumors flying around about the Chinese global technology startup OnePlus. No, I don’t mean the ones about “Oxygen OS“, but rather the ones about hiking the price of the OnePlus One in India.
Today OnePlus put those rumors to rest by officially announcing “NO PRICE HIKES” for the OnePlus One in India .
Despite the recent steep increase in the customs duty on imported mobile devices at the Union Budget 2015, the OnePlus 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.
Commenting on this development, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager – India, OnePlus, said: “In line with our #NeverSettle philosophy and long term commitment to the Indian market, we assure our users that we are constantly evaluating what works best for them; part of that is to continue to make the One available at an attractive price point.”
“It is an ambitious step for a young startup, but for us it’s about returning maximum value to our users by offering them great products and unique experiences”, he added.
