OnePlus 2

OnePlus is aiming for a larger share of the Indian smartphone market, announcing its intention to sell 1 million units by the end of 2015. The Chinese vendor has sold 250,000 units of the OnePlus One since the device debuted in the country late last year. The OnePlus 2 is expected to bring in a majority of sales, but the OnePlus One will also be available for purchase. India is OnePlus' fourth-largest market, outside of China, US and Europe, with the manufacturer commencing sales of the OnePlus 2 exclusively on Amazon India from August 11.

According to OnePlus India general manager Vikas Agarwal:

India is an important market for us. Outside of China, it is already the third largest market for us, after the US and Europe... We expect to sell one million units of OnePlus One and Two by December.

The OnePlus 2 is very competitively priced in India, with the 16GB model set to retail for ₹22,999 ($359), and the 64GB model with 4GB RAM set to cost ₹24,999 ($390). With the country witnessing smartphone shipments of over 19.5 million in the first quarter of 2015, there is a lot of potential for growth for vendors like OnePlus.
