It has a 13-megapixel camera with Sony IMX214 stacked sensor, 6-element lens, f/2.0 aperture, dual LED flash, 4K video recording and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. It has 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM, has 4G LTE connectivity and packs a 3100 mAh battery.

OnePlus recently appointed Vikas Agarwal as the general manager for India. This will be the first region in which a localized service infrastructure is established, offering phone and walk-in support to users around the country, said the company.

Commenting on the launch of OnePlus One India and partnership with Amazon, Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, said:

Our company focuses first on our users and our product. We want to provide the best possible experience for our Indian users who have been so supportive of our vision. To do that, we are investing heavily in our Indian operations and partnering with the fastest growing and most admirable e-commerce company in the market, Amazon.in.

Amit Agarwal, Vice President and Country Manager, Amazon India, said:

We are very excited to bring this much awaited phone for our customers in India. And we are having real fun with the unique marketing initiatives for the launch. It fits right into our philosophy of bringing wide and unique selections and experiences for our customers.

As the company already announced, users in India will receive India-specific invites through OnePlus and Amazon.in. The two platforms have been integrated so that invites claimed into a OnePlus account will be used to purchase the device on Amazon.in, said the company.

You can head to oneplus.net/in and register your interest for an invite starting today. Amazon India is running a contest that lets you stand a chance to win an invite to purchase the 64GB Sandstone Black variant of the smartphone that is launching in India. Those who purchase the OnePlus will receive invites that they can share with others. Check out the official promo video from Amazon India.
