OnePlus One teased in India as an Amazon exclusive
We've already told you that the OnePlus One will soon hit the Indian market. A teaser posted by Amazon India, indicates that the phone will be an Amazon exclusive in the country. While the teaser doesn't mention the phone by name, the image used is of a phone that certainly resembles the OnePlus One. And the image file on Amazon's server is entitled "OnePlus teaser." This doesn't mean that OnePlus won't offer invitations in the country, or run its usual contests. In fact there is a contest that ends today, with 100 India-specific invites being given away by the company.

To enter the contest, you need to come up with a witty statement that begins with #NeverSettle. Contestants then need to take a picture of themselves holding a placard with their saying written on it. Post the picture to OnePlus by clicking on the sourcelink. Simple, right? After 48 hours, 100 random winners will be selected. 24 hours after that, the winners will be notified by email. Remember, these invitations are good in India only.

Company founder Carl Pei has been talking about the difficulties in matching supply of the phone, with demand. The company would have been happy selling 100,000 units of the One this year, and already more than half a million have been sold. OnePlus is aiming to sell 1 million units this year. Despite all the marketing gaffes and the backfire over the invitation system, OnePlus has built a device it can be proud of.

They might receive the phones in 2016. This is a total farce.
