How to buy the OnePlus One in India with Amazon.in?

Gadgets New Releases News

Assume we need to solve a simple math calculation. 1+1. Now go ahead into Google and type ‘one plus one’. I can assure you, the answer will not be two, but rather the new ‘flagship killer’ smartphone, OnePlus One. All set to release on 2 December in India, people may say that the OnePlus One is overhyped. An object can only be overhyped if the hype is greater than the value. With the OnePlus One, it’ll take a lot more hype to call it truly overhyped.

How did a smartphone get so popular prior to its release? Not even the fast food chains got so much attention when they opened up branches in India. The OnePlus executives have been lively on their forums and have been regularly communicating with potential buyers. The amazing specifications bundled with the CyanogenMod 11S for the price of under Rs. 25,000 for the 16GB variant is an offer hard to pass up on.

Something so great has to come with some disadvantage. Fret not, we aren’t referring to the phone specifications. What we are referring to is the method to buy a OnePlus One. Exclusive to amazon, interested parties must follow a procedure:

1. Register for the newsletter on Amazon.in or the company’s Indian website for the OnePlus One.

2. Amazon will send you an email containing your OnePlus One account. On clicking the link given and logging in with your OnePlus One account, you will receive the invite to buy the smartphone.

3. Now all you have to do is click the buy button on Amazon.in. Choose the Sandstone Black version of the OnePlus One along with your invite code as you move to the payment options. Complete that and congratulations, you have purchased your flagship killer, the OnePlus One.

Do bare in mind that this invite lasts only for 48 hours. After purchasing the device, you can send emails to friends or colleagues. In case your allotted two days does expire, you can re-apply for the invite, either through someone who bought the phone, or by following the steps listed above.

Now after getting a good look at the OnePlus One we’d like to point out some of its most striking features. First up would be the screen. The 5.5 inch LTPS LCD touch screen, protected by Gorilla Glass 3┬áhas great viewing angles and crisp display due to its 401ppi density. Next would be the sheer power packed into the phone. This beast come with the Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5GHz with four cores and a 3GB RAM. Accompanied with the Adreno 330 GPU and a 3,100 mAh battery, this packs for all you need and much more. Last would be the camera, the OnePlus One boasts of a 13MP rear camera, which has a 6-lens array and a f/2.0 aperture that has a shutter speed of 0.3 seconds. Fit perfectly into a beautiful design the OnePlus One is truly a flagship killer.

The OnePlus company believes in never settling for something as you can always do better. Which is clearly seen on the homepage on the OnePlus One. An amazing phone, especially given its price, this phone stands to shake the roots of all medium-priced phones, if not overthrow them. All we can hope is that it sells as much as it should be sold.
