OnePlus finally brings its more affordable 16GB One to India

Back in December, the OnePlus One went on sale in India - but curiously, only the 64GB model was available. But those buyers who have no need for so much onboard storage can finally purchase the 16GB model in India from today.

The 16GB version is available in 'Silk White', and is priced at Rs.18,999 INR (approximately $305 USD) - a little less than the 64GB One, which is still available for Rs.21,999 ($353). In India, the device is not sold direct by OnePlus, but rather via Amazon, where the cheaper model is now on sale.

Indian versions of the One are sold with the same CyanogenMod user experience available on the device in other parts of the world. However, it will soon be replaced there with the company's own Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM, which it calls 'OxygenOS', after Cyanogen signed an exclusive distribution deal in India with domestic devices brand Micromax.

The OnePlus One was one of our favorite devices of 2014, but it could be another six months before its successor arrives. But one bit of good news that you may have missed recently is that you no longer need an invite to buy the One. As long as you're happy to order the phone on a Tuesday, you can skip the queue and place your order without the frustration of the company's 'invite system'.
